In later years he continued his leadership in advancing MIS as president of the ISGE and the ESGE. He published on laparoscopy, hysteroscopy and gynaecological endoscopy. He occupied from 1965 to 1992 the position of consultant at the Princess Royal Hospital in Hull which he helped build into a center of advanced minimal access surgery.
