I moved to Ireland when I was 19 to study Medicine. I qualified from UCD in 2004. After my internship I did a postgraduate Master of Science degree with UCD where I was awarded first class honours.
My clinical career in Obstetrics and Gynaecology started in 2006. Since then I have worked in a number of hospitals across Ireland including The Rotunda, National Maternity, Coombe Women and Infants and Cork University Maternity Hospitals, the 4 busiest Maternity hospitals in Ireland.
I have gained vast experience in managing all aspects of pregnancy. Other than knowledge, I pride myself on being extremely caring, a very good listener and put great importance on providing an individualised care to each of my patients.
I particularly have a keen interest in labour ward obstetrics. From a very early stage in my career I was leading local meeting and reviews of CTGs (cardiotocograms) and difficult cases in the labour ward. The length and quality of my Obstetrics training has provided me with the safe skills of dealing with all vaginal and cesarean section deliveries and Obstetric emergencies.
I also have a fellowship in advance pelvic and gynaecology laparoscopic (key hole) surgery. I am a certified colposcopist (management of abnormal smears) and robotic gynaecology surgeon. Those set of skills allows me to medically or surgically look after a range of benign gynaecological issues.
Research and teaching have always been an important part of my career. I have published in peer reviewed journals and presented in national and international conferences. I have produced a number of questions that are currently being used for postgraduate examination in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. In 2017 I was invited to be a honourary lecturer for the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
I am married to Helena and have 2 children.
