Dr. Brian has been practicing since 2008 and completed higher surgical training in four of the leading specialist pediatric and neonatal surgical institutions across the world, to include Edinburgh, Glasgow, Belfast and Auckland. His fellowship at Starship Hospital, Auckland New Zealand, concentrated on neonatal surgery and advanced minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery for children.  This training and experience have provided him with advanced skills that allow precise and effective care of infants, children and young people.

Areas of special interest for Dr. Brian are ‘scarless’ (SILS) and keyhole surgery e.g. hernia repair, cholecystectomy, appendectomy and gastrostomy insertion. Dr. Brian also has extensive experience in neonatal surgery for major complex congenital anomalies such as esophageal atresia, gastroschisis & omphalocele and congenital diaphragmatic hernia. In addition, Dr Brian regularly provides expert surgical care for undescended testes, endoscopy for children, removal of lumps, circumcision and ingrown toenails.
