Professional profile

I began subspecialty training in gynae-oncology in 1997 becoming a consultant gynaecological oncologist in 2001 at St James' Hospital where I currently work in the NHS. I undertake major laparoscopic procedures which enable patients to be discharged home sooner than would otherwise be possible after open surgery. At Spire Leeds Hospital I also do general gynaecological work.

In terms of general gynaecology, I treat menstrual disorders/fibroids/endometrial biopsies and vulval disorders including lichen sclerosus. Other treatments include removal of polyps, laparoscopic procedures including hysterectomies and removal of tubes and ovaries for both benign and malignant conditions. In addition I perform colposcopy and LLETZ for abnormal smears. With regards to gynaeocological cancers - I treat ovarian, endometrial, cervical and vulval cancers.
