Mr Oak is a highly qualified and experienced consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist, having qualified in 1972. Dedicated to his continuing professional development, on top of his General Medical Council (UK) CPD and annual appraisal requirements, he has received further qualifications and training to keep up to date with modern techniques and procedures.
Mr Oak has particular experience and a special interest in gynaecological endocrinology, pelvic pain & pelvic floor surgery, endometriosis, infertility, benign gynaecological surgery, minimal access surgery and reversal of sterilisation.
He has undertaken numerous research and audit projects and has over 20 articles and papers in national and international journals, and has also presented internationally. Additionally, he reviews scientific papers for British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Journal of Obstetrics and gynaecology and British Medical Journal.
As a qualified expert witness, Mr Oak has prepared reports for Plaintiffs and Defence lawyers for over 14 years, covering clinical negligence and personal injury cases.
He passionately believes in joint decision making with patients and as such, informed consent is of great interest to him. To this end, Mr Oak has developed information consent papers for the gynaecological procedures that he performs so that patients can make a truly informed decision.
Personally, Mr Oak has interests in teaching - having regularly provided education to GPs throughout his career - and has supported various charities, as well as the charitable work of the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists.
