    I was appointed as a Consultant Cardiothoracic Surgeon in 2000 after training in Newcastle, Cambridge, London and Toronto. I am the only surgeon with a combined practice in both cardiac and thoracic surgery. I have a special interest in heart and lung transplantation, becoming Director of the Transplant Program in 2011. I am also interested in minimally invasive cardiac surgery, transcatheter valve implantation, robotics (lobectomy and mitral valve repair) and ex vivo organ perfusion. I hold a number of positions within the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery, the Royal College of Surgeons and the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation.
