Dr Martin has become established as one of the Scotland’s leading laparoscopic experts
Following a period of full-time research Dr Martin went on to receive a commendation in his Membership to the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. After completing his general training in obstetrics and gynaecology, a period of further higher specialist training was undertaken and Dr Martin achieved subspecialist status in gynaecological cancer surgery.
Dr Martin is currently a Consultant Gynaecologist and subspecialist in Gynaecological Oncology at the main Scottish university teaching hospital, The Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.
Consultant colleagues nationally refer complex surgical patients to Dr Martin. As a gynaecological oncologist, he operates on patients needing the most difficult surgical cancer procedures. Dr Martin believes that this challenging surgery translates to a consistent, precise surgical service to his patients with benign disease such as endometriosis and heavy periods. Indeed he has developed a particular interest in laparoscopic (keyhole) treatment of endometriosis.
Dr Martin has become established as one of the Scotland’s leading laparoscopic experts. He receives numerous referrals from established consultants within the private and state healthcare system to review and treat complex surgical problems. He introduced Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy (TLH) to the Spire Murrayfield Hospital and performs more of this type of procedure than other consultants in the private sector in Scotland. Indeed Dr Martin was the first consultant ever in Scotland to perform a TLH through one single incision at the tummy button and he believes that there are huge potential benefits from this technique which include a lower risk of infection and a much quicker return to normal activity. He continually strives to offer the most up-to-date laparoscopic therapies to women. Dr Martin is a local laparoscopic trainer and has been invited to Paris and Hamburg to teach at laparoscopic workshops.
