I graduated from Newcastle University Medical School in 1991. I completed my training in General and Endocrine surgery in Newcastle in 2002. This included two years Molecular Biology based research, completing an MD in 2001. I was awarded the Intercollegiate FRCS in General Surgery with a specialist interest in Endocrine Surgery in 2001. In 2004 I was the first UK surgeon to be awarded the European Board Exam Qualification in Endocrine Surgery. I worked as Assistant in Endocrine Surgery in Marseille, France for 18 months in 2001-2002 where I gained experience in Minimally Invasive techniques of parathyroid surgery including Video Assisted Parathyroidectomy. I also gained a large experience in Laparoscopic Adrenal surgery and thyroid cancer surgery.
Recently I edited a textbook in Endocrine Surgery with contributors from the UK, Europe, USA & Asia entitled ‘Principle & Practice of Endocrine Surgery
’ published by Springer, August 2009.
