Surgical Robot Vision Research Group


Brian Dromey BSc (Hons) MBChB MRCOG

I am a Clinical Research Fellow working jointly at UCL’s Institute for Women’s Health and the Surgical Robot Vision Group, as part of the GIFT-Surg (Guided Instrumentation for Fetal Therapy and Surgery) project. GIFT-Surg is a collaborative research project between UCL, Kings College London, and KU Leuven. Our objective is to transform fetal surgery from open to minimally invasive procedures, reducing maternal risk, and improving fetal outcomes. I was awarded a combined Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery from the University of Leeds, England, in June 2012. Additionally, in September 2010 I attained an intercalated B.Sc in Medical Imaging from the University of Leeds. I completed my Foundation Training in Yorkshire. In August 2014 I commenced specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the West Yorkshire region. My clinical posts have been in large, busy maternity units with high-risk populations including Bradford Royal Infirmary, Leeds General Infirmary, St James’ University Hospital, and The Mid-Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. I was admitted as a Member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) in July 2018. 

My primary research interests are in materno-fetal medicine, minimally invasive procedures, and skills assessment and analysis.
