I am an accredited specialist in urology, dedicated to providing the highest possible standard of care to every patient. I pride myself on the personal relationship I develop with patients - understanding that the trust and confidence they have in their doctor is vital throughout your treatment - particularly focusing on pre- and post-operative care to optimise surgery outcomes and provide a smooth recovery.
After graduating from the University of Wales Medical School in Cardiff, I underwent basic surgical training on the St Bartholomew’s circuit in London including an 18-month post with the urology team at Great Ormond Street Hospital. I won a prestigious Royal College of Surgeons Fellowship and joined Professor Alison Brading’s world renowned Continence Group at the University of Oxford, where I carried out scientific research into the basic mechanisms of bladder sensation in health and diseases such as overactive bladder and interstitial cystitis. The results were presented and published internationally and my interest in clinical research continues.
I undertook a year-long urology fellowship at the Christchurch Urology and Burwood Spinal Injuries Centre in New Zealand, treating patients with complex problems from all over the country.
I have received comprehensive training in the most advanced techniques in benign urological surgery; both in the Oxford Urology Program and during the time I spent working in New Zealand and am one of the few UK urologists to have formal training in female pelvic floor reconstruction.
When not at work, I spend as much time as possible with my young family.
My clinical interests include urogynaecology/female urology, prostate conditions, benign and malignant bladder conditions, complications arising from the use of mesh in the vagina eg TVT / TOT, surgery for post prostatectomy incontinence, urinary tract infection, bladder/pelvic pain conditions and reconstruction of the urinary tract after cancer surgery or iatrogenic surgical injury.
