Expert Witness

I have considerable expertise in all areas of general surgery but have become a specialist in upper gastrointestinal surgery, particularly surgery of the oesophagus, stomach and gallbladder. I have extensive experience of laparoscopic cholecystectomy and minimally invasive anti-reflux surgery, also performing oesophageal and gastric resections for malignancy. Audited and presented outcomes in all these areas compare favourably with results produced anywhere in the world.

I have 40 years experience on the emergency rota as a general surgeon and can provide expert opinion on any case relating to a general surgical emergency.

I have extensive experience in the preparation of reports in cases of alleged clinical negligence, both for the defendant and claimant.

I have produced in the region of 250 major reports and have been instructed by solicitors including Hempsons, Ward Hadaway, Lees & Partners, Pannone, Gadsby Wicks, Thomson Snell Passmore, Slater and Gordon, Campbell Smith and Drummond Miller(Scotland) and Cian O'Carroll (Ireland)

I am a member of the Institute of Expert Witnesses and am listed on a number of further expert witness directories.
