His specialist Oral and Maxillofacial training was in the South East of England including rotations at renowned units such as Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead and the Royal Surrey Hospital, Guildford. On completion of his specialist training in 2017, James undertook a further highly regarded international fellowship focused on orthognathic (corrective jaw surgery), reconstruction of traumatic facial injury and dental implant surgery at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Australia. 

James is a consultant at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford with
additional sessions at North Hampshire NHS Foundation Trust and Haslemere Hospital. Practicing privileges are held at both Nuffield Health Guildford and Mount Alvernia Hospitals. He is actively involved in training junior surgeons, is departmental clinical governance lead and is a core member of the regional specialist skin cancer multidisciplinary team.

Between them, James and Ben have over 30 years of combined experience and hold similar subspecialist interests in a broad range of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. This includes the surgical removal of wisdom teeth and impacted teeth, placement of dental implants and treatment of jaw pathology such as cysts. They are both expert in treating facial skin lesions ranging from benign skin tags to complex melanoma cases, and are particularly skilled with facial plastic surgery reconstruction techniques to give patients the very best cosmetic outcomes. James and Ben are both highly experienced orthognathic (jaw deformity) surgeons, using contemporary planning and surgical techniques to deliver stable and consistent results and they enjoy working with orthodontists to provide excellent continuity of care for patients.

Although they mostly consult and operate independently, James and Ben can also offer a combined service for the more complex jaw deformity, facial trauma and aesthetic cases to achieve the very best results and provide the highest standard of care for their patients.
