About me

I qualified in medicine from the University College London in 1991. Following that I was trained in obstetrics and gynaecology at the now closed West London Hospital and Charing Cross Hospital in London. My training in Urogynaecology was with Professor Linda Cardozo at Kings College Hospital in London and Mr Ash Monga at the University of Southampton. I was appointed a Consultant in Obstetrics and Urogynaecology in 2001 and developed the existing urogynaecological service at St Peter's Hospital in Chertsey.

My main interests include investigation and treatment of prolapse of female pelvic organs, treatment of urinary and faecal incontinence. I have introduced a number of new procedures for treatment of incontinence which can be performed under local, spinal or general anaesthesia. I perform a large number of vaginal and abdominal operations and various treatments for prolapse and urinary incontinence. In particular I offer uterine sparing procedure for the uterine prolapse, thus avoiding a need for hysterectomy. My other interest and expertise is repair of pelvic floor damage associated with pregnancy and traumatic obstetric deliveries. I also offer treatment for abnormal cervical smears and menstrual disorders.

The main hospitals from where I practice are the Runnymede Hospital in Ottershaw and Nuffield Health Woking Hospital in Surrey where I offer full assessment and treatment of urogynaecological procedures including specialised pelvic floor rehabilitation, urodynamic assessment and surgical repair in indicated.

I am involved in teaching and training of junior and middle grade doctors in modern treatments and techniques in urogynaecology and regularly give second or third opinions on complicated clinical problems with patients who might have had previously unsuccessful treatment.

I am a member of the British Society of Urogynaecology and International Urogynaecological Association, The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and the British Medical Association.
