During my consultant career, I have overseen a large clinical practice, both in general paediatric surgery, neonatal surgery and paediatric urology and I have published papers in all these fields.

I commenced my consultant career as Paediatric Surgeon with a special interest in paediatric urology on 1st of October 1988 in the Central Manchester and Manchester Children’s University Hospitals NHS Trust and was in post in the NHS until 2015 and in private practice until June 2019. I remain in clinical practice as visiting consultant paediatric urologist to the National Archbishop Mikarios Children’s Hospital in Cyprus.

I have been preparing medical reports for over 25 years, both in the area of clinical negligence and personal injury. I have prepared in excess of 200 reports and given evidence both in court and at the GMC.

During my consultant career I have

overseen a large clinical practice, both in general paediatric surgery, neonatal surgery and paediatric urology, but almost exclusively in paediatric urology for the last 20 years, specifically kidney, bladder and genital conditions including:
Kidney and Ureter
All congenital and acquired kidney urological problems
Kidney and ureteric obstruction
Duplex kidney and ureteric problems  
Vesico-ureteric reflux
Duplex kidney and ureteric problems  
Bladder problems
Neuropathic Bladder and Spina Bifida
Bladder dysfunction and Urinary incontinence
Bladder Exstrophy
Bladder reconstruction   
Urethral conditions and Genital problems
Hypospadias and Epispadias
Foreskin conditions and Circumcision

Hernia and Hydrocele  Genital conditions

Throughout my consultant career, I provided urological and general surgical services to spina bifida patients. I, with a paediatric nephrology colleague, set up a regional nephrourology multidisciplinary clinic for spina bifida patients in 1991. During the period 2005-2015, I was the senior paediatric urologist in Manchester providing services to the spina bifida patient group. I also initiated a Daytime-Wetting Clinic for children in Manchester in 1995, which continues now, nurse led. During my career I have looked after more than 3000 children with urinary incontinence. Since 1999 my unit and the Great Ormond Street Hospital paediatric urology unit, provided the national service for the management of children with Bladder Exstrophy and related conditions. I was the senior clinician during the period 2005-2015. As such, I would be regarded as an authority on this group of rare exstrophy conditions and their management.
