I specialise in period problems, pelvic pain, menopause, vulval conditions, hysteroscopy procedures, laparoscopic surgery, hysterectomy and coil fittings.
I am an advanced laparoscopy surgeon and can perform operations for the removal of ovarian cysts, treatment of endometriosis and hysterectomy. I am also trained in advanced hysteroscopic surgery and can perform polypectomy and fibroid resection procedures.
I routinely look after children, and young adults regarding their concerns about reproductive health, including common conditions like vulvo-vaginitis, labial fusion, PCOS and period problems.
I was appointed as a Consultant Gynaecologist in the UK in 2009 and am primarily based at the Leicester Royal Infirmary. I am the lead for gynaecology at University Hospital of Leicester and provide paediatric and adolescent gynaecology services for the East Midlands area.
I obtained specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in London and advanced training in laparoscopic surgery and assisted reproduction from University Hospitals of Wales, and undertook a Fellowship year in Adelaide, Australia, prior to being appointed as a Consultant. I am a trained paediatric and adolescent gynaecologist and am affiliated to the British Society of Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology.
I work as a lead for ambulatory gynaecology services at University Hospital of Leicester. I have a passion for medical education and am currently working as a CMG education lead and college tutor at University Hospitals of Leicester.
