I qualified as a doctor in Dublin in 1982. I have been practising obstetrics (care of the pregnant woman) and gynaecology (non pregnant pelvic problems) since 1986, appointed as a Consultant in 1995. During my training I started performing keyhole surgery at St. George’s Hospital in 1989, after receiving extensive training in more conventional open and vaginal surgery.
In obstetrics, my particular interest is high risk pregnancies and ultrasound, and have published widely in this area. I have a particular interest in the use of ultrasound in the diagnosis of problems, and the use of a minimal access (keyhole) approach to surgery.
I have been a trainer in both ultrasound as well as minimal access laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery. This website was created to help provide women, patients and students with a better understanding of the common symptoms and operations that are performed in obstetrics and gynaecology.
