I perform appendicectomies, cholecystectomies and fundoplications laparoscopically when appropriate, and perform Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomies for assisted nutrition.

The more common neonatal conditions I manage include Hirschsprung’s disease, malrotation, atresias of the oesophagus, and bowel, and necrotizing enterocolitis.
