Professional profile

I studied at St Thomas' Hospital London. I worked as a research registrar at Queen Charlotte's and Chelsea Hospital and St Thomas's Hospital London and gained my clinical registrar experience on the St George's rotation. I completed my senior registrar training in obstetrics and gynaecology and sub-specialty training in maternal and fetal medicine at St Michael's Hospital in Bristol.

I specialise in pre-natal screening for fetal abnormalities and invasive diagnostic procedures including amniocentesis and CVS as well as the management of high risk pregnancies. I have a particular interest in congenital abnormalities of the fetal gastro intestinal tract and abdominal wall. I also carry out paternity tests both anti-natal and pre-natal. My gynaecological interests include the management of menstrual dysfunction, polycystic ovary syndrome and subfertility and the investigation and management of recurrent miscarriage. I perform a wide range of gynacological surgery including minimal access (laparoscopy/hysteroscopy) for the treatment of PCOS, menorrhagia and pelvic pain due to adhesions/endometriosis. Scanning/fetal medicine clinics at the following times:. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings. Tuesday, Thursday mornings and Saturday afternoons. Gynaecology clinics on Thursday and Saturday mornings. Other appointment times can be arranged.
