Professional profile

I have more than 20 years experience in his speciality. I completed training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Egypt where I worked as a lecturer, Assistant Professor and gained a wide experience in general Gynaecology. I moved to UK and completed MD in ovarian cancer research in Newcastle University and completed training in colposcopy in Northern Gynaecological Oncology Centre (Gateshead). I then completed my subspecialty training in Gynaecological cancer in Pan Birmingham Gynaecological cancer centre and was appointed as NHS consultant in the same centre.

I have an interest in ovarian cancer and key hole surgery. I have published many international publications studying the role of surgery in ovarian cancer as well as its biology. In addition to my interest in ovarian cancer surgery (debulking), I also have a special interest in laparoscopic (Key hole) surgery. I worked as a Key hole surgery fellow for 2 years, obtained a Diploma in the subject from Auvergne University (France) and further developed skills and techniques of key hole surgery in women cancers.

I continue to be active in cancer research and I am a reviewer for a number of national and international Journals and for the Cochrane Collaboration.
