About me

I am an NHS and Private Obstetrician and Gynaecologist working in Central London. As well as caring for pregnant women I also specialise in Laparoscopic surgery, Endometriosis and Urogynaecology. I qualified at Guy’s Hospital in 1984 and have trained and worked ever since in London teaching hospitals. After passing my specialist exams (MRCOG) in 1991 I was honoured with the Fellowship of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (FRCOG) in 2005.

I currently practice privately at OBGYN Matters which is a subsidiary of Nuada Gynaecology and continue to work part-time in the NHS at the Homerton University Hospital.

My primary reason for becoming a doctor was to go into a career where I felt that I could make a difference to people. I soon discovered that I had a particular talent for those areas of medicine that were more intensive, practical and with high levels of stress. I found these situations rewarding rather than stressful.

During my career I have realised that it is the day to day work, patient contact, team work and teaching that particularly interest me, in preference to management and research. As a result I have focussed my attention on building my practical skills to the highest possible standard. I do not want to give patients routine care, I wish to give them extraordinary, personalised care, excellent outcomes and to minimize complications.

Many Gynaecological operations may be performed using Laparoscopic surgery, my aim is where possible to perform simple and complex gynaecological surgery using Minimal Access Techniques in order to maximise surgical outcome and minimise hospital stay and patient morbidity. I also believe that where open surgery is necessary this needs to be performed gently and with finesse in order to minimize complications and speed recovery.
