I am a proud graduate of Wits, qualified as a Specialist Surgical Gastroenterologist with a special interest in Colorectal in 2014. I am a laparoscopic enthusiast as I feel this surgical technique offers my patients the best care, least amount of post operative pain and fastest return to full function. I work as part of the colorectal unit (CRU) at the Wits Donald Gordon Medical Center (WDGMC) and our patient care holistically involves a multidisciplinary team and individual specialists who work together in all aspects of patient care. I am involved in the training of postgraduate Wits surgical registrars and Colorectal Fellows. My international fellowships have allowed me to establish good relations with the international leaders in colorectal surgery, these friendships allow for international discussions and advice with the world leaders in colorectal surgery for all patients at the WDGMC.
My research has included completing my MMED during my surgical training as well as multiple research projects which have resulted in publications. I continue to pursue new projects to improve our insight into medicine and surgery in the South African population.
