I have several special interests.

I think that surgeons will obtain better results when they specialise in only a few procedures. For me, these include surgery for inflammatory bowel disease in children, particularly ileal pouch surgery for ulcerative colitis and minimally invasive surgery for Crohn's disease. I also have a very large practice with children who suffer from intractable constipation and who have failed to improve despite several years of medical management.

I am also interested in revisional surgery for failed fundoplications, and in oesophageal replacement surgery in children.
