I have been a consultant endocrinologist for over 40 years. I have maintained a strong interest in PCOS, menopause and osteoporosis.
In my clinics I see women with wide range of hormonal disorders including absent and/or irregular periods, premenstrual syndrome, unwanted hair growth, hyperprolactinaemia and thyroid disorders.
I have long standing and extensive clinical experience in management of PCOS and have pioneered the use of anti-androgens and metformin in this condition.
A significant proportion of my clinical practice is management of perimenopausal and postmenopausal women, giving them advice on the risks and benefits of menopausal HRT regimes and individually tailoring and monitoring their hormone replacement.
For many years I have had a special interest in providing young women with premature menopause with comprehensive advice regarding fertility and HRT.
I monitor and treat young women with autoimmune thyroid disorders who are pregnant or planning pregnancy.
I consult to men, as well as women, with low bone density or osteoporosis for diagnosis and treatment. I have long standing experience in managing osteoporosis in young women with eating disorders.
I am also investigating and treating patients with vitamin D deficiency, calcium disorders including hyperparathyroidism and thyroid disorders.
