“The underlying principal of my surgical career has been to treat my patients as I would want my family members treated. With this in mind, I believe I offer an efficient, but friendly, patient centred service. Mindful of the above, I continue to monitor my surgical outcomes closely and feel proud of my surgical outcomes over the last two decades.”
