Summary

 

Summary

I am a consultant physician with a specialist interest in the medical management of older surgical patients. With my team, I supervise the medical care of elderly trauma and surgical patients at St Mary's Hospital London.

I am the leader of the Cutrale Perioperative & Ageing Group. We focus on using bioengineering tools to reduce the risk of surgery and improve the lives of older people. 

I currently supervise twelve doctoral students. In addition I am the  Chair of the SAC for geriatric medicine, which coordinates the training of over 800 specialist registrars in geriatric medicine across the UK.
