I am married and have two children. I am enthusiastic in learning new languages and I speak several languages. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my children.
I actively participate in advocating excellence in laparoscopy, presently involved in charitable endoscopic training course in Wales.
My special interests are the management of endometriosis, chronic pelvic pain and advanced gynaecology ultrasound, vaginal surgeries including vaginal hysterectomy and pelvic floor repair.
Laparoscopy: My advanced minimal access surgery skills, enable me to perform wide range of laparoscopy which include,
Keyhole surgery results are effective, safe, require minimal recovery time, short hospital stay and reduced scarring.
Operative hysteroscopy procedures including under local anaesthesia, endometrial ablation, trans-cervical resection of endometrium and the resection of polyp (Myosure)
One stop “see and treat” hysteroscopy for abnormal uterine bleeding
Ultrasound: I am qualified in advanced Gynaecology Ultrasound.
I perform ultrasound scans during the consultation. This allows a 'one stop' approach to most gynaecological conditions, as well as providing me with vital information for the discussion of treatment options with patients.
Pelvic pain: I have expertise in the multidisciplinary management of chronic pelvic pain.
Management of fibroid, menstrual disorders, subfertility, premenstrual syndrome.
Pelvic floor surgeries for prolapse- Vaginal hysterectomy and pelvic floor repairs.
Conservative management of incontinence symptoms.
My research interests are in chronic pelvic pain, diagnosis and management of endometriosis. I have presentations and publications in these at various national and international journals.
The majority of my laparoscopy procedures are discharged within 24hrs. I regularly audit my outcome data, infection, readmission, and complication rates in order to provide quality care at all times.
