Endocrinology and diabetes
I obtained my MBChB at Groote Schuur Hospital, Cape Town in 1990, followed by a Diploma in Child Health. I went on to specialise in adult General Medicine, Diabetes and Endocrinology. In 2000, I moved to the UK and spent two further years as a Specialist Registrar at UCLH London before taking up my post at the Lister Hospital.
I am interested in all aspects of Endocrinology including thyroid, adrenal and pituitary disease, lipid disorders, obesity, polycystic ovary syndrome and metabolic bone disease/osteoporosis. In addition to Types 1 and 2 diabetes, I manage gestational and adolescent diabetes. I have close links with the St Bart’s and UCLH Endocrine Units in London as well as the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.
I am involved in multicentre Diabetes Trials at the E&N Herts NHS Trust and have numerous publications in the field of diabetes and endocrinology
