About me

I qualified from Leeds university Medical School in 1984 and trained in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Yorkshire. I took up my Consultant post at Darent Valley Hospital in 2000.
I treat a wide range of conditions and have special interests in:
- Urogynaecology (the treatment of urinary incontinence and prolapse).
- Gynaecological cancer.
- The treatment of heavy/ painful periods using minimally invasive surgery.
- Minimal access surgery (keyhole surgery).
- Vulval conditions

At Darent Valley Hospital I am the lead Gynaecologist for Urogynaecology and Gynaecological Cancer.

I offer a wide range of surgery for incontinence and prolapse including:
- Vaginal hysterectomy and vaginal repair
- Sacrospinous fixation
- Sacrohysteropexy / sacrocolpopexy
- TVT
- Urethral bulking
- Colposuspension
- Bladder Botox

As well as my clinical interests I am a great believer in empowering patients through the provision of information, as my personal website www. kentgynaecologist.com clearly demonstrates.

When not working my interests include cycling and gardening.
