I have over 16 years’ experience as a Consultant in Gynaecology, specialising in Urogynaecology (problems with bladder control, continence and vaginal prolapse).

During my career I have pioneered new surgical and non-surgical therapies for continence, often making treatment quicker, more comfortable and reduced recovery times. I also represent the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecologists in helping NICE (The National Institute of Clinical Excelence) review new surgical techniques in Urogynaecology.

I am a national and international surgical trainer for a number of surgical companies, and I also regularly train consultants from all over the world in new surgical techniques.
