I have particular interests in Body Imaging and Interventional Radiology performing a wide variety of interventional radiology procedures, focusing on interventional oncology and endovascular procedures.

I am a friendly, meticulous and competent Interventional Radiologist who aims to provide the most up-to-date and evidence based service for my patients. I am happy to discuss the most appropriate treatment options for you as well as discuss how it impacts on other aspects of your medical treatment.

I believe in a multidisciplinary approach to your treatment and will, where appropriate, discuss your case with other health professionals inorder to provide the best treatment plan for you.
