Abdul H Sultan is a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist (Clinical Lead since 2009) with a special interest in urogynaecology at Croydon University Hospital and honorary Reader at St George’s University of London. He completed his basic medical training (MB.ChB) in South Africa prior to moving to the United Kingdom in 1984 and obtained the MRCOG degree in 1990 (FRCOG 2003). He subsequently took up a research post under the supervision of Prof Chris Hudson at St Bartholomews and Homerton Hospitals and Professors Clive Bartram and Mike Kamm at St Mark’s Hospital. The research involved studying the effects of childbirth on the pelvic floor and anal sphincters. This led to a landmark paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine and to a Doctorate (MD). His pioneering work highlighted the deficiencies in training of doctors and midwives in detecting and repairing injuries to the perineum and anal sphincter after childbirth.
