Experience

BASIC SURGICAL TRAINING (Oxford Rotation)

I acquired good experience in the management of acutely ill and trauma patients in the busy John Radcliffe Accident and Emergency Department and Oxford Trauma Centre in my first year. The job provided regular opportunities to be team leader in trauma calls and apply my skills in ATLS. It also taught me to cope under pressure.

I had a further one year experience in Transplant Surgery and General Surgery, having been taught by Professor Sir Peter Morris and Professor Hugh Barr, at the Churchill Transplant Centre and Gloucestershire Royal Hospital respectively. I was first on call on 1:4 rota and my responsibilities included managing very ill and immuno-suppressed transplant patients. The duties also included weekly grand rounds, medical student teaching plus daily minor operating lists, with access surgery performed for nephrology patients. I also had the opportunity to perform procedures such hernia repairs, laparoscopic cholecystectomies, appendicectomies and varicose vein surgery.

 

GYNAECOLOGY (Royal Marsden Hospital)

I worked for Professor John Shepherd and Mr Des Barton in this specialist Gynaecological-Oncology Centre. I gained experience in the management of tertiary referrals who underwent complex pelvic surgery. I was first on call on a 1:4 rota and my responsibilities also included managing very ill post-operative ENT, sarcoma and complex urology patients.

 

UROLOGY (Training)

Senior House Officer, Royal Marsden Hospital, London, February –August 1999

I worked for Mr C Woodhouse, Mr R Shearer and Mr W Hendry in this specialist Uro-oncology unit. My primary responsibility included 1:4 first on call and the management of very ill tertiary referral patients who underwent complex abdominal and pelvic surgery.

Senior House Office, Institute of Urology and Nephrology, August 99-April 00

This post provided excellent training opportunity in the management of patients with complex urological problems requiring major reconstructive and corrective surgery.  I had the privilege of learning clear and logical management approach from Mr Peter Worth and Mr Julian Shah. This posting also provided me with the responsibilities to carry out urodynamics with the associated weekly case meetings, and the opportunity to attend various meetings, lectures and participate in clinical governance.

Specialist Registrar, Hammersmith Hospital, April 00-Oct 00

This post provided me with the opportunity to apply my skills from my previous posting in transplant surgeries with Professor Sir Roy Calne in Cambridge and Professor Sir Peter Morris in Oxford. Mr Gordon Williams and Mr S Agarwal further thought me skills in managing complex nephrology and transplant patients. I also benefited from the management of paediatric patients during the post, which included paediatric outpatients and operative sessions and communications with parents.

Specialist Registrar, St Mary’s Hospital, Oct 00-Oct01

I gained experience in endourology and the management of a wide range of urological diseases including brachytherapy and laparoscopy having been taught by Mr R Witherow, Mr J Vale and Mr A Patel. I first developed interests in PCNL and stone management under the guidance of Mr Witherow. In theatre, I performed minor penile scrotal procedures including vasectomy, orchidopexy, circumcision, frenuloplasty and Jaboulay procedure. I was taught endoscopic procedures such as optical urethrectomy, TURP, and TURBT.

Specialist Registrar, Hillingdon Hospital, Oct 01-Oct02

I was able to take advantage of the strong basic urological and surgical principles I have learned at St Mary’s Hospital and strengthened them here. I performed TURP and open nephrectomies, pyeloplasty and ileal conduits without close supervision. I was also responsible for organising the theatre list and managed to reduce the waiting list significantly.

Specialist Registrar, Wexham Park Hospital, Oct 02-Oct03

This busy posting provided me with the opportunity to be involved in more complex open pelvic surgery. I assisted and also carried out radical prostatectomies, Clam ileocystoplasty, radical cystectomies and orthotopic neobladder formation with close supervision. I in addition carried out in excess of 500 TRUS biopsy of prostate with local anaesthesia infiltration, and audited the complications of the procedure.

Specialist Registrar, Watford General Hospital, Oct 03-Oct04

Despite a busy year passing the FRCS (Urol) examination, I continued to increase my experience in general urology, open pelvic surgery, female urology and also learning new skills such as Holmium laser enucleation of prostate. Being the Senior Registrar, I was also able to supervise the junior registrar in core urological procedures.

Stone Fellow, Institute of Urology, Oct 04- Oct05

At the final stages of my training, I have continued to nurture my interests in endourology and Andrology. I was fortunate to have exposure to the Minimally Invasive Approaches to the management of Stones. I also had the opportunity to learn cutting edge management of Male subfertility techniques under the guidance of Professor G Williams, Mr Simon Carter, and Mr Johnathan Ramsay.
