I am a Consultant Urological Surgeon working in several London hospitals and an Honorary Senior Lecturer at king’s College London.
My postgraduate training in adult and paediatric urology was mainly in London: at Great Ormond Street Hospital, The Royal Free Hospital, Whipps Cross University Hospital, North Middlesex university Hospital, Charing Cross Hospital, Bart’s and the Royal London Hospital and also at Birmingham Children hospital.
I am the clinical director for Urology Service at Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Trust.
My special interests are:
- Female urinary health problems including management of recurrent urinary tract infection, overactive bladder, painful bladder syndrome and urinary incontinence.
- Men’s health problems including Benign and malignant prostatic disease, prostatitis, erectile dysfunction and scrotal and foreskin problems.
I have an MSc degree in Urology from University College London. I am a keen researcher and I have published extensively in peer reviewed journals nationally and internationally with more than 50 publications, especially in the field of minimally invasive treatment for prostatic hyperplasia, recurrent urinary tract infections and female urology. I have a special interest in medical education and mentorship and I obtained a Diploma and Master (MSc) in Medical Education from University College London. I have been a Fellow of The Higher Education Academy (FHEA) since 2012. My hobbies are playing golf, gardening, digital photography and collecting old Syrian stamps.
In addition to my normal clinical work and educational commitments, I was involved in providing much needed medical help to patients in The Gambia, as a volunteer with the Urolink (part of British Association of Urological Surgeons).During my visit to The Gambia, I worked at the Royal Victoria Teaching Hospital in Banjul with a team of urologists from the UK. I spent one week there in 2007, 2008 and 2013; examining patients with urological problems in the outpatient department and operating on patients with various urological problems. In addition, I provided several teaching sessions to the local trainee doctors and medical students.
