His research has attracted multiple local and regional competitive grants, and its results have been published in international high-impact medical journals. He pioneered a novel minimally invasive procedure, cricopharyngeal peroral endoscopic myotomy (C-POEM), intended as a treatment for swallowing disorders due to neuromyogenic disorders (e.g., Parkinson’s disease). He is the director of the St George Motility Services (St George Public Hospital), supervising the Swallow Clinic, Gastrointestinal Motility Laboratory, and his research team.
