Professional profile

I am a Consultant Urological Surgeon at the Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust and have recently moved to part time working at the trust but will continue to offer a full urological service at Spire Elland Hospital for private and NHS patients.

I studied medicine at Cambridge University and qualified in 1987. I undertook my basic surgical training in Cambridge and Norwich and after a spell in London as a general surgical registrar I moved to Leeds to undertake my urological training based at St James University Hospital in Leeds. It was here that I developed a specialist interest in bladder disorders and incontinence. I undertook a period of research at the Department of Physiology at the University of Leeds and my research thesis was in the Sensory Innervation of the Urinary Bladder.

My specialist interest is in Incontinence and the Overactive bladder and I regularly perform operations for stress incontinence in women and well as having a specialist interest in the use of bladder Botulinum toxin (Botox) injection for this common condition.

Research interests: Physiology and pathophysiology of the lower urinary tract.

Special Clinical Interests: Female urology; Overactive bladder and Botulinum toxin injections; Paediatric urology.
