I have 18 years experience within the field of Gynaecology and women's health. I am a practising Consultant Gynaecologist with a special interest in Urogynaecology. I specialise in pelvic floor dysfunction, birth related injuries, vaginal prolapse and female urinary incontinence.
I provide care to women with complex urogynaecological conditions, including primary and recurrent pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, and pelvic floor dysfunction. I also provide specialist care for women presenting with perineal problems, including postpartum complications, early pregnancy complications, menstrual disorders and menopausal problems. I strongly believe and provide sensitive and holistic women-centred care, enpowering women with choice of options to the management of their problems.
I have performed numerous and various urogynaecological procedures including vaginal repair operations, uterovaginal prolapse repairs, female stress urinary incontinence procedures, native tissue incontinence procedures, laparoscopic incontinence procedures, urodynamics, laparoscopic gynaecological investigations and hysteroscopic procedures.
