Professional profile

I have been a consultant gynaecological oncology surgeon at the University Hospitals of Leicester since January 2015. I undertook my subspecialty fellowship in gynaecological oncology at the Leeds Cancer Centre, before joining as a consultant in Leicester. Prior to this I trained in gynaecological oncology and had completed two and a half years research as a clinical research fellow, at the Northern Gynaecological Oncology Centre, Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead. My obstetrics and gynaecology (O&G) specialist training began in Kolkata, India, where I compelted a Diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (DGO), followed by MD (O&G), between 1999 and 2005, before moving to the Northeast of England, where I completed formal training in O&G from 2005 to 2010.

I am formally trained and highly experienced in the management of general gynaecological conditions as well as vulval, vaginal and cervical pre-cancer and other gynaecological cancers. I have a special interest in developing advanced laparoscopic techniques, robotic procedures and the multidisciplinary surgical approach to advanced ovarian cancer surgery.

Annually I perform over 250 major gynaecological surgical procedures, in addition to performing over 300 daycase/minor gynaecological procedures in both my NHS and private practice. I also perform in excess of 500 colposcopic procedures each year in my clinical practice.

I am the clinical lead in radical gynaecological oncology surgery at the University Hospitals of Leicester, NHS Trust.

In the absence of the current chairperson, I chair the weekly Gynaecological Oncology Multidisciplinary Team Meeting at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.

Research and Publication

Endometrial Cancer, Ovarian Cancer Treatment and Cervical Precancer.


From my research work in endometrial cancer, I have shown that 'tumour-free distance from serosa is a better prognostic indicator than the depth of myometrial invasion and percentage of myometrial invasion in endometrial cancer', and that 'tumour size is a better independent predictor of distant failure and death than depth of myometrial invasion in FIGO stage I endometrial cancer'. I have also shown that intra-operative fluid optimization in advanced gynaecological cancer leads to early postoperative recovery and fitness.
