He has published over 120 research papers in scientific journals as well as reviews and book chapters in the fields of fetal medicine, benign gynaecology (including abnormal uterine bleeding, fibroids, endometriosis, endometrial hyperplasia), and minimal access surgery.  He has received grants from WellBeing of Women, National Health Institute for Research (Health Technology Assessment), Medical Research Council and various industry partners. 

He is an advocate for ambulatory care and believes that in the future of NHS services is Ambulatory Gynaecology with the development of 'One-stop' 'See & Treat' outpatient local anaesthetic clinics which have translated traditional inpatient surgery to the outpatient ambulatory setting e.g. treatment of fibroids, polyps, endometrial ablation, miscarriage and sterilisation.  He has also developed innovative enhanced recovery programmes in gynaecology.  All this work has helped reduce NHS costs and promote safer surgical techniques, developed national and international guidelines (e.g. laparoscopic entry techniques, safer techniques for global endometrial ablation following being a member on a MHRA committee, endometrial hyperplasia (RCOG/BSGE)).  These innovations have received national and international accolade.
