To date I have gained experience in all aspects of urological surgery and chronic disease management and oncology in Urology. I have also got experience in academia and have had the role of lecturer at St George’s Medical School where I have prepared delivered courses at undergraduate and post graduate levels. I have interest in research and hope to continue getting involved in research projects and publishing in peer review journals.
In my specialist registrar training I have gained experience in new technologies such as Robotics, laser prostate surgery, brachytherapy and High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound therapy for prostate cancer, and laser treatment for stone disease. In Andrology I have worked with one of Europe’s most respected surgeons Mr David Ralph and have learnt how to perform penile implant procedures, reconstructive procedures and surgical correction of infertility.
I have obtained my certificate of completion of training in both General practice and Urology. I have had a lot of experience in Medical Education both at undergraduate and Postgraduate Levels.
I have had experience in Medical Management and Leadership. I have organised and supervised projects in West Africa renovating medical facilities and supplying essential medication to third world countries.
I am head of the andrology and sexual Health in our department of Urology at Clemaneceau medical centre. I have a private clinic in Beirut where I do a lot of my stem cell work to treat penile disorders and erectile dysfunction. I recently completed a study on the safety and efficacy of Fillers in Penile augmentation and presented the work at the recent world congress of aesthetics in Monaco. I also use fillers for female genital rejuvenation and augmentation.
