I am a consultant cardiothoracic surgeon and main interests are: 

  • Adult cardiac surgery 
  • Leadership

Education and Training:

I qualified in pharmacology with basic medical science at University College London (UCL) in 1994. I continued my medical training at UCL, University of London, and was awarded Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery in 1996. 

I started specialising in cardiothoracic surgery in 2001 when I took up the post of research fellow in cardiothoracic surgery at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Ohio. I undertook research towards my thesis. In 2004, I returned to the UK as a specialist registrar and in 2009 I became a consultant in cardiac surgery at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust.

I was awarded Doctor of Medicine from the University of London in 2009.

I joined the Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust in early 2016, working at Harefield Hospital.

I am  an Honorary Associate Clinical Professor at Warwick Medical School.

  • Coronary artery bypass grafting (on and off pump) with interest in total arterial revascularization
  • Minimal access surgery
  • Atrial fibrillation surgery

My Research Interests

My research interests include team working, human factors and cardiac modeling. I have PhD students working on cardiac modeling. I have been co-investigator in a phase II clinical trial investigating red blood cell washing and acute kidney injury in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. I was the principal investigator in two portfolio studies funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) covering the effect of remote ischaemic preconditioning on clinical outcomes in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting and the impact of two blood transfusion threshold levels following cardiac surgery.
