Course Director for the MSc Surgical Skills course and Clinical Senior Lecturer in Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery.

Research Details

I am a leading expert in establishing higher education degrees for acquiring operative surgical skills by simulation. I pioneered the Masters course in Surgical Skills and Sciences at Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University of London and have set up a "Virtual Reality Surgical Simulation Centre" for training surgeons. The course employs novel techniques in the education of surgeons, using computer simulations to enhance surgical skills. I am also on the faculty at the Royal College of Surgeons for teaching laparoscopy skills.

My main academic interests are in:

  • Surgical education in acquiring operative skills by simulation
  • Developing curriculum for acquiring surgical skills by simulation

My main clinical interests are in:

  • Surgery for benign and malignant diseases of the Oesophagus and Stomach.
  • Laparoscopic and Bariatric Surgery.
  • SILS – Single Incision Surgery
  • General and Gastrointestinal Surgery.

Profile

I joined the Queen Mary College and Barts and The London NHS Trust in August 2004 as a Clinical Senior Lecturer in Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery. I graduated from University of Bombay, India, in 1992 and have obtained the higher specialist training in Laparoscopic and Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery in the UK  from 1994 to 2004. I am a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

In my current consultant post at Barts and the Royal London Hospital, I provide the regional gastro-oesophageal cancer service for Inner East London.

I am also the course director for the Masters (MSc) in Surgical Skills and Sciences MSc course at Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University of London. As a director I am involved in the delivery, quality assurance, and quality enhancement of this course.
