Simon graduated from St Thomas’ Hospital Medical School in London in 1993 and then obtained both his Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (FRCSEd) in 1999 and his Membership of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, England (MRCOG) in 2002.

This dual training in surgery and gynaecology has allowed Simon to broaden his practical skills and safely perform more complex surgery laparoscopically, in particular for the treatment of severe endometriosis.

He is involved in laparoscopic training courses for trainees and teaches other consultant colleagues new techniques.

He has published in internationally recognised journals and contributed to a book chapter in a recent RCOG Reference book on Laparoscopic surgery.
