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 four doctoral students, with a further three due to start in September 2021. In addition I am the Vice Chair of the SAC for geriatric medicine, which coordinates the training of over 800 specialist registrars in geriatric medicine across the UK.

Third year Imperial College medical students are welcome to attend my weekly lectures at 4pm on Mondays at St Mary's (currently suspended due to Covid-19).
