In addition to my work at St Joseph’s Hospital, I work as a consultant sub-specialist Urogynaecologist at Singleton Hospital, Swansea. I received my qualification in India and obtained postgraduate training with a Masters, in Obstetrics and Gynaecology before moving to the UK.
I have undergone structured postgraduate training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the UK as well. I have completed extensive training in general Gynaecology, as well as advanced (sub-specialisation) in Urogynaecology in London, Bristol and Plymouth for managing complex prolapses and urinary incontinence.
I am the only accredited sub-specialist in Urogynaecology in Wales and perform a wide range of gynaecological surgeries for prolapse and incontinence including all non- mesh procedures. I am keen to teach these skills to my juniors, and I am the deputy sub-speciality trainer of the sub-speciality training programme in urogynaecology in Wales.
I believe in a multi-disciplinary approach for the management of these complex pelvic floor problems and actively involve specialist pelvic floor physiotherapists and continence nurses in the management of these conditions.
I also work as part of the multidisciplinary mesh complications clinic at Singleton Hospital, Swansea.
In addition to the management of prolapse, incontinence and recurrent urinary tract infection, I provide care related to general gynaecological problems including menorrhagia and pelvic pain.
I am married and have two children. I enjoy cooking, interior design and listening to music.
In addition to clinical training, I completed a clinical research fellowship at Kings College, London. My current research interest involves central sensitisation and the role of central sensitivity syndrome in pelvic organ prolapse and I am currently undertaking MD at Plymouth University.
I have published many scientific papers, written a book chapter and presented my research at both national and international conferences.
In addition, I am on the research committee of the British Society of Urogynaecologists.
I was on the advisory panel for the management of Interstitial Cystitis.
I am on the committee of the Welsh Pelvic Health Implementation Group, and on the organising committee of the British society of Urogynaecologists.
I regularly audit my outcome data, infection, readmission, and complication rates in order to provide quality care. I believe in a patient-focused, supportive and honest consultation to enable patients to make informed decisions on their treatment options. This was evident in my 360-degree feedback from the patients
