Philip is a renowned Gynaecologist who has spent 20 years training and working in the area of incontinence and prolapse. He is one of only a handful of Urogynaecologists with a Department of Health clinical excellence award in recognition of his clinical expertise and commitment to improving women's health through his research programme.
Philip's reputation reflects his attitudes to practicing pelvic floor medicine, where he feels a holistic approach looking at all aspects of care including the psychological impact of pelvic floor problems. Despite this he offers contemporary and state of the art surgical solutions where required.
Philip has been in practice as a counsultant in the West midlands at Birmingham's Women's hospital since 2000 and is a former Clinical director of Gynaecology and theatres. He was the lead clinician in Urogynaecology for nearly 17 years and he has established a tertiary referral unit. He runs one of only 17 Urogynaecology subspecialty training programmes in the UK.
Whilst Philip has been a clinician first and foremost he has also contributed significantly to developing knowledge through leading a research programme. He has published over 120 peer reviewed papers, guidelines and reviews
