Interventional radiologist • Interventional specialist with over 600 interventions per year, including vascular, biliary, embolization, EVAR, TEVAR, urogenital, and pediatric procedures. Focused on challenging interventional procedures and new techniques. Active role in several UK and European associations.
Since 2012, I am the Vascular and Interventional Radiology Consultant at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, specifically the Addenbrooke Hospital. Its Radiology Department has an international reputation for its academic and clinical activities. I am also a visiting professor at the University of Bern School of Medicine in Switzerland.
I have performed more than 1800 interventions including peripheral vascular procedures, biliary procedures, embolization, EVAR, TEVAR, urogenital and pediatric. As a consultant, I have introduced ablation of renal tumors that was not previously performed in our Trust and treated cancer patients that were considered otherwise inoperable. In conjunction with the pediatric gastroenterologists, I expanded pediatric interventions by organizing a service of liver biopsies for complex patients. I have also performed more than 800 angioplasties and introduced new techniques and materials. My diagnostic work includes vascular, abdominal, and oncology imaging. I supervise trainees on a daily basis.
I published 61 articles in peer reviewed scientific journals and have written several book chapters. I am also the lead editor of a book about challenging interventional concepts and procedures. I am a member of the editorial board of several medical journals and a reviewer for many more. I have delivered 31 lectures at international meetings and symposia.
I play water polo and I always enjoy a good swim. I am interested in fine arts and particularly in painting and sculpture.
