About Mr Connell
I have had a solid training in obstetrics and gynaecology as well as having areas of special interest. During my training I gained considerable surgical experience and have worked as a Consultant in Kent for 12 years. Before this I was a registrar in Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells Trust, Benenden Hospital and St Thomas’ Hospital in London.
I treat a wide range of gynaecological conditions and have special interest in urogynaecology (the treatment of urinary incontinence and prolapse), the treatment of heavy periods and Minimal Access Surgery (keyhole surgery). I've had a solid training in these techniques and have close contacts in Europe to keep “up to date”.
I lead and share the lead in the running of several services as a Consultant in my present post. I led on setting up a laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy (“day-case hysterectomy”) service in the private sector and the NHS. I enjoy teaching and has set up and run several courses.
I've presented at national and international conferences on various topics and published broadly around obstetrics and gynaecology. With my interests, expertise and experience I'm able to give service to my patients. I'm well-equipped to teach and to initiate and to contribute to research.
