After completing his internship and basic specialist training in the Trent region, Matt undertook an MD in the School of Human Development at the University of Nottingham, investigating the aetiology of recurrent pregnancy loss. Matt completed registrar training in the Trent region before deciding upon a career in gynaecological oncology.
He moved to St James Hospital, Leeds, in 2001 to undertake a three-year sub-specialist training programme in gynaecological oncology surgery. Matt was appointed as a Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist at St James in 2006, but shortly after moved to the Cork University Maternity Hospital where he is also a Clinical Senior Lecturer with the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
The Cork University Maternity Hospital has a dedicated gynaecology minimally invasive theatre with a ‘da Vinci S’ robot and Matt has pioneered the use of this system for oncological and benign gynaecological surgery. The department has performed more robotic gynaecological surgeries than any other hospital in the UK or Ireland and Matt trained the first European dedicated Gynaecological robotic fellow. Cork has been designated one of the national Centers for Gynaecological Oncology in Ireland and Matt is a founding member of Cork gynecological oncology multidisciplinary team.
Matt is the colposcopy lead for Cork, the second busiest colposcopy unit in the country and the pilot site for the implementation of the new national colposcopy guidelines. Matt is the President of the British & Irish Association of Robotic Gynaecological Surgeons (http://www.biargs.org.uk/).
