I have been a Consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology since 1999. After 11 years as an NHS Consultant at Chase Farm Hospital in North London, I am now in fulltime independent private practice. My special areas of interest include Endoscopic Surgery, Urinary Incontinence and Endometrial Ablation.
I achieved my Degree in Medicine at the University of Leicester in July 1989 and became a Member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in November 1994 and a Fellow in 2008.
Areas of interest
Urogynaecology; Endoscopic procedures; Minimal access / invasive surgery; Prolapse; Irregular bleeding; Fibroids
Anaesthetists worked with (Bupa members, please ask your consultant whether your anaesthetist is fee-assured)
I am married to Louise, who helps me in the practice, and have two children (George and Lily). Outside of medicine I struggle on the golf course and love messing around in boats.
I have many research publications and have co-edited a text book of gynaecological surgery (“Advances in Gynaecological Surgery”).
