I qualified in 1992 from the University of Calcutta, India and did my basic surgical training in the Yorkshire region. Following the completion of FRCS I was a research fellow at the Academic surgical unit at Hull and published papers on MRI breast and sentinel node biopsy. I underwent higher surgical training in the North West deanery (1998-2004) working at the breast unit at the Nightingale Centre and Christies Hospital. I was a National Oncoplastic fellow at the breast unit at Sheffield (2003-2004). After finishing my training I took up a consultant post at Salford Royal Foundation trust and moved to my present job at The Nightingale & Genesis Breast Cancer Centre, University Hospital of South Manchester, in 2015. I specialise in breast cancer and reconstructive surgery.
I have taught in, and organised courses in, implant based reconstruction. I have led quality improvement projects and published book chapters. I have given lectures internationally in places including Singapore, India and Bangladesh. I am a council member of Asian Society of Mastology (ASOMA). I am interested in teaching and in the past has been foundation tutor, communication skills tutor in Manchester medical school and currently the lead for trainees in our breast unit.
