I graduated from St George’s Hospital Medical ‘school, London University in 1992. I then undertook postgraduate training in some of the leading centres in the country before being appointed as a Consultant in 2004 in London. I become a member of the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologist in 2001 and was elected as a fellow (FRCOG) in 2013. In 2012 I was awarded a post graduate diploma (distinction) from the University of Surrey, for advanced endoscopic (key hole) gynaecology. I moved up North in 2006 and fell in love with Yorkshire. I have been a Consultant at Airedale Hospital since then. I am the lead for minimal access surgery and gynaecological cancer.
Although my particular expertise is pelvic pain, endometriosis and laparoscopic surgery I have a broad gynaecological practice and have the experience and expertise to treat menstrual problems, fibroids, ovarian cysts, PMS, menopause, prolapse in the absence of incontinence and early gynaecological cancers. I also have subspecialist training in colposcopy.
I strive to ensure that all of my patients are given the time to discuss their concerns and to understand all of the treatment options available to them. In 2018, I won the Primrose best doctor award. This is an Endometriosis UK local charity that provides prizes to healthcare professionals based on patient nominations.
In 2016, I was awarded a Master of Law (LLM) degree from the University of London. I am frequently called upon to be an expert witness.
I'm an Arsenal supporter.
When I’m not at work, I spend time with my family and enjoy walking in the Yorkshire countryside. I also enjoy travelling and experiencing new cultures. I keep fit by running and spending time in my local gym. I love reading and like all things historical from antiquity to the modern age. I also am involved in a number of charities that help children from under privileged backgrounds achieve their aspirations
