Mr Jafaru Abu has a special interest in minimally invasive gynaecological surgery and was one of the first gynaecologists in the UK to perform Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS), a “scarless” procedure.
Mr Abu was instrumental in the introduction of total laparoscopic (keyhole) hysterectomy (TotLapHyst) for the management of endometrial cancer and later for surgical management of cervical cancer at the Nottingham University Hospitals. He also regularly performs keyhole fertility preservation surgery for early stages of cervical cancer in young women.
Mr Abu also treats advanced ovarian cancers aiming to achieve complete tumour resection. This procedure is currently only performed by a handful of gynaecological oncologists in the UK as it requires a more advanced surgical oncology training.
Mr Abu regularly attends national and international seminars both as a delegate and a speaker. He provides mentoring for other consultants in advanced keyhole surgery in gynaecology, in particular total laparoscopic hysterectomy and total laparoscopic radical hysterectomy.
Committed to the training of other consultants, Mr Abu is involved in organising clinical skill workshops that are used to train other doctors in the skills needed for advanced laparoscopic surgery in women. Mr Abu established a Masterclass Course, which has become popular both nationally and internationally. In the course, Mr Abu teaches other consultants about the skills used in total laparoscopic hysterectomy and other minimally invasive procedures in gynaecology. He is also a member of an international faculty of experts in IRCAD Minimally Invasive Training Centre in Strasbourg, France.
Mr Abu has completed original research work on Menstrual Disorders and Retinoid Receptors in Cervical Cancer at the University Hospital of Leicester. Mr Abu continues to do clinical research work into gynaecological cancers. He is still involved in conducting/supporting clinical trials because he believes they are of tremendous benefits to future patients.
Mr Abu's expertise is such that he runs a much sought after masterclass for consultants wishing to improve their laparoscopic skills. This two-day course is entitled:
Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Masterclass Utilising Cadaveric and Clinical Immersion Training Model.
Mr Jaf Abu is a key speaker at LNACPD's online events.
