Professional profile

I have been trained in General Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Tygerberg Academic Hospital and the Unversity of Stellenbosch, Cape Town, South Africa (graduation 1994). I have also recieved further training in Urogynaecology and Pelvic Floor dysfunction in Plymouth and London, as well as in Temple Texas, USA (1996-1998). I am on the Specialist Registrar in both South Africa (1994) and the United Kingdom (since 2003). My specific clinical interests are Urogynaecology, Emergency Gynaecology and Menstrual dysfunction and any other aspect of General Gynaecology.

I regularly update myself about new developments in my field of clinical practice. I strive to replicate the basic principles of good patient care (accurate diagnosis and evidence based therapy), which I employ in my NHS practice. I believe that the service I provide in the private sector is further enhanced by the absence of time limitations and financial constraints, which unfortunately shackle the state service. I believe that in my dealings with a patient, her own interests are paramount and that any decisions taken about diagnosis and therapy are taken with the full participation of the patient, based on robust, evidence-based information and an open and frank discussion thereof.

Personal Profile

I have always had the desire to help people with medical needs, realising that Obstetrics and Gynaecology is the perfect specialty to deal with patients with a wide range of conditions. I believe that a sympathetic, attentive ear, backed by solid theoretical knowledge and clinical experience are necessary attributes to be able to provide a good service to my patients.

I am a family man, with a wife and child, and believe in strong family values. My interests outside medicine include sport, mountaineering and walking, sailing, music, travelling and reading (particularly non-fiction and current affairs).
