Professional profile

I have been a consultant gynaecologist with a specialist practice in urogynaecology and pelvic floor disorders (incontinence and prolapse treatments) for the last 20 years. I perform investigations on the bladder such as urodynamic testing and ultrasound scans. I also treat patients with period problems (heavy and/or painful).

I perform 250 prolapse operations and around 100 incontinence procedures each year. I audit all outcomes and am able to give specific risks and benefits of all surgical procedures and conservative treatments. I have an active research program identifying different causes of the overactive bladder and benefits of different surgical treatments. I offer the traditional procedures for stress incontinence such as the TVT operation as well as non-mesh options such as periurethral injections, fascial slings and colposupension. Anybody requesting surgery for bladder problems will be given a full set of information and will have the option to choose the most appropriate operation that suits each individual. I do not use mesh for vaginal prolapse surgery. I have regular weekly operating lists, so most patients are able to choose a convenient date for their surgery.

I have performed over 2,500 TVT/mid urethral sling procedures over the last 20 years for stress incontinence. I have performed over 3,000 prolapse procedures including more than 1,000 abdominal and vaginal hysterectomies. In addition I have performed more than 1,000 laparoscopies (inspection of the pelvic organs and a similar number of inspections of the womb cavity - hysteroscopies.

I am Chairman of the British Society of Urogynaecology (BSUG) and provide advice to the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) and Government on clinical matters.

In addition to my clinical work I am also an Honorary Professor at the University of Kent. My work involves identifying if there may be an infective cause for the overactive bladder. We are also working on drug delivery systems. I have research fellows that I supervise and PhD students working for me. We regularly present our work at National and International meetings. I have published widely and have over 100 peer reviewed publications in journals as well as book chapters. I regularly lecture on my work to a variety of different audiences in the UK and abroad. I have no financial relationships with any drug or device manufacturers.
