- Gynaecological oncology
My subspeciality interest is in gynaecological cancer surgery, which was developed through my research interest in the immunological reaction to cervical precancerous and cancerous changes in the body, at the University Hospital of Wales. My obstetrics and gynaecology training has taken me around the hospitals of South East Wales, and my subspecialist training in gynaecological cancers was based at the Welsh Regional Centre for Gynaecological Oncology in Cardiff.
I have an interest in minimal access surgery and gynaecological cancer surgery and I introduced minimal access surgery in gynaecological cancer surgery to Wales in 2005; I have developed the first pelvic mass clinic in Wales to accelerate the management process of these patients.
I am currently the cancer lead for the department and the chairman of the South Wales Cancer Network Gynaecological Oncology advisory group. I also regularly teach on postgraduate courses around South Wales.
