Professional profile

I am currently a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist at West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust. I see outpatients and operate at Watford General Hospital, Hemel Hempstead and St Albans City Hospitals.

I have a special interest in female bladder problems and prolapse, having undertaken specialist surgical training and research in urogynaecology. I have written a large number of publications including book chapters and scientific papers in medical journals. I have also lectured at meetings both in the UK and abroad. I am responsible for providing urodynamic investigations across the trust and hold specialist continence clinics.

I have also been fully trained in laparoscopic surgery and have a particular interest in the treatment of pelvic pain. In the trust, I frequently perform laser surgery for endometriosis. I am happy to treat most ovarian cysts using 'key hole' techniques.

I also welcome patients with general gynaecological problems such as heavy, irregular or painful periods.

Personal Profile

I have been married since 1992 and have three children who are a tremendous source of fun. Apart from family activities, my main interest outside work is sport. I cycle regularly and when the opportunity arises I also like to play golf. My eldest son is a medical student in Liverpool.
