Special Interests

NHS Base

Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children


The Portland Hospital

205-209 Great Portland Street


I graduated in London in 1990 and went on to complete my radiology training both in London and Vancouver. I have been a paediatric radiology consultant for fifteen years and my NHS base is at the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.  I work exclusively with children from 0-16 years, and in all modalities of imaging. I use the very lowest radiation techniques (especially in fluoroscopy). I am also a general body radiologist covering all areas, but my subspecialty is tertiary expertise in the urogenital system and gastro radiology, particularly specialising in urinary tract infections, wetting, congenital abnormalities of the renal/urogenital tract, and in childhood ‘tummy-ache’, and ‘surgical conditions. I have close working relationships with paediatric urologists, paediatric nephrologists, general surgeons, paediatric gastroenterologists and ENT.
