I qualified from the Quaid Azam University, Pakistan in 1986. I completed my basic and advanced general surgical training there before qualifying the Fellowship in general surgery.
I started my urology training in England and completed a Masters of Science degree at the University College London. My thesis on an aspect of prostate cancer diagnosis was awarded a distinction. More advanced training, including sub specialty training in female and reconstructive urology, was completed in East Scotland. I was appointed to my current post as consultant urological surgeon NHS Fife in December 2007. I have helped establish a streamlined pathway for diagnosis and treatment of the incontinent patient including video urogynamics and the use of botulinum toxin (Botox) bladder injections for the overactive bladder.
