Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist Minimal Access Surgeon
"Dr Johnston graduated with Honours in Obstetrics and Gynaecology from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Dublin in 1995. After gaining a sound basic training in very busy leading Gynaecological and Obstetric hospitals in Dublin, he moved home to Northern Ireland in 1998. He achieved his membership from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG) at a very early stage in his career.
During his early post graduate training he also quickly acquired a Diploma in advanced obstetric ultrasound, in addition to recognition in gynaecological ultrasound from the Royal college of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and Royal College of Radiologists.
Seeing the future of gynaecological surgery for women was minimal access surgery and realizing this training was very limited in mainland United Kingdom and Ireland, he travelled to Sydney, Australia to undertake a fellowship in advanced laparoscopic gynaecological surgery. He spent two and a half years in Sydney Women’s Endosurgical Centre (SWEC), a world leading training centre in gynaecological surgery.
Bringing these advanced surgical skills back to Northern Ireland, he is and remains one of the provinces most established and leading gynaecological surgeons. Dr Johnston has published extensively in gynaecological surgical journals, is actively involved in post graduate training and continues to present papers of his ongoing work and experience annually in Europe and the United States.".
