Virtual consultations:

I am a Consultant Gynaecological Oncology Surgeon at Nottingham University Hospital NHS Trust. I sub-specialise in gynaecological cancer surgery including uterine, ovarian, cervical and vulval cancers.

I received higher surgical training in managing gynaecological cancers from Cambridge University Hospitals and worked there briefly as a consultant before moving to Nottingham. I have received training in managing gynaecological conditions such as endometriosis, heavy menstrual bleeding, ovarian cysts, labial cysts, and cervical pre-cancer.

I have a keen interest in performing complex keyhole surgery in managing gynaecological cancers. I am a BSCCP certified colposcopist and have interest in managing cervical pre-cancer conditions and cervical HPV. I also have a keen interest in multi-disciplinary management of advanced ovarian cancers. I offer diagnostics services such as hysteroscopy for women with menstrual problems such as post-menopausal and peri-menopausal bleeding.

I have a keen interest in research in cancer and I carried out a research MD from University of Lancaster and worked on iospectroscopy methods as a novel diagnostic tool in cancer and pre-cancer diagnostics.

My previous training was in Gujarat, India where I completed an MD in obstetrics and gynaecology from MS University, Baroda. I moved to the UK in 2004 and received further training in obstetrics and gynaecology in the East of England.
