This body of work presents the research and publications undertaken under a general theme of minimal access colorectal surgery. Papers are presented on surgery for colon cancer, rectal cancer, splenic flexure, emergency surgery, and complications after laparoscopic surgery, outcomes, training in minimal access surgery and robotic surgery. The work highlights my own personal contributions and publications under this theme, as well as collaborations and output emanating from multi-centre trials. Presentations include video, oral and poster presentations at national and international meetings. With my background experience of laparoscopic surgery, the focus has been on applications of laparoscopy for the management of colorectal cancer, role of laparoscopy in emergency settings, and complications of colorectal surgery. With a significant experience in robotics, I have shared the published data from management of rectal cancers and the techniques of single docking total mesorectal excision and flexure mobilization. A particular focus has been on teaching and training in minimal access surgery. My publication record comprises; pathfinder and seminal papers; papers from co-supervised MD/MSc; international collaborations; technical authorship and support; other published contributions; guideline development and technical reports and internal briefing papers.
