- Gynaecological oncology
I qualified in medicine in Athens and then moved to the UK where I started and completed all of my training in General Obstetrics and Gynaecology. I became accredited in General Gynaecology in 2004 after finishing the South West Thames rotation scheme. During my training I spent an extra year as a Fellow in Laparoscopic Surgery in Worthing. After becoming a Specialist in Gynaecology, I completed a three years sub-specialty training programme in Gynaecological Oncology at Guilford and Middlesbrough. I was appointed as a Consultant in Gynaecology and Gynaecological Oncology in Hull in August 2007.
I have considerable experience in surgical gynaecology for benign and malignant diseases. My principal areas of expertise are in gynaecological cancer care, smear problems, colposcopy and laparoscopic / hysteroscopic techniques. Other areas of my expertise include investigation of pelvic pain, post-menopausal bleeding, menopause and management of ovarian cysts and heavy periods.
I am a registered specialist in gynaecology and sub-specialist in gynaecological oncology by the UK General Medical Council. I also hold certification in laparoscopic surgery from the RCOG and colposcopy certification by the BSCCP.
