Mr Duncan practices general gynaecology and specialises in minimally invasive treatments to common gynaecological conditions, colposcopy and the investigation and treatment of women with possible gynaecological cancer. He offers up-to-date methods for treating common gynaecological problems, such as menstrual irregularities including post-menopausal bleeding, fibroids and ovarian cysts. Menopausal health and strategies to maintain a healthy lifestyle are also areas I focus on. Many approaches involve investigation and treatment as an outpatient. Where needed, the use of minimal access surgical techniques, enables a more rapid recovery and return to normal activities. Mr Duncan values the role of both surgical innovations and medical advances, in areas such as HRT, to improve the quality of life for women. He has a keen interest in providing patient choice through clinical innovation, such as laparoscopic (keyhole) hysterectomy and individualised, women-centered, treatment plans. He trained in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Nottingham, following which he completed a three-year sub-speciality training programme in Gynaecological Oncology and advanced laparoscopic surgery. This included a research MD in molecular prognostic markers in ovarian cancer. Mr Duncan is a senior lecturer at the University of East Anglia and the course director for a national training course relating to the development of advanced laparoscopic surgery. He maintains an active interest in research through the delivery of several national and international clinical trials.
