Professional profile

I am an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist employed by the Luton and Dunstable University Hospitals NHS Trust. I completed my diploma in obstetrics and gynaecology at Madras Medical College (India). I later trained in Oxford deanery and have worked in various teaching hospitals in the Oxford region. I specialise in colposcopy, general gynaecology, minimal access surgery, Out-patient hysteroscopy and gynaecology scanning. Areas of particular interest include menstrual disorders and benign gynaecological conditions.

Currently I run the post-menopausal bleeding one stop clinic at Luton and Dunstable Hospitals which is well appreciated by patients. The procedures have reduced the need for general anesthesia, thereby reducing hospital admission. I specialise in removing polyps with different innovative techniques.

I see patients with abnormal smears, abnormal bleeding (post coital and intermenstrual bleeding). I do out-patient colposcopic procedures like loop treatment under local anaesthesia.

I see patients with general gynaecology problems, fibroids chronic pelvic pain, and ovarian cysts in my general gynaecology clinic.

I strongly believe that treatment offered to women should be holistic, taking into consideration their view and opinions, and I take pride in offering women high quality care. My advice and approach are always evidence based and supported by the provision of evidence-based information offered in a form that is tailored to the needs of the individual patient. I strongly believe that good communication between healthcare professionals and patients is essential. I am currently the College Tutor for trainees in Luton and Dunstable University Hospitals and I pride myself in facilitating a good environment for the junior and middle grade doctors who will become tomorrow’s reputed consultants.
