Biography

Barry O'Reilly graduated from RCSI in 1991 and later moved to London to commence specialist registrar training based in Guy's and St. Thomas' hospitals. He was awarded a research fellowship to work in the prestigious laboratory of Professor Stephen McMahon where he studied ATP receptors in overactive bladder which lead to the award of MD in 2000. On completion of specialty training he moved to Melbourne, Australia to undertake subspecialty training in Urogynaecology and Pelvic Floor Reconstructive Surgery under Prof Peter Dwyer and Dr Marcus Carey. He was appointed Consultant and Senior Lecturer at the Mercy Hospital for Women and University of Melbourne in 2003. He returned to take up a consultant post in Cork in 2004 and has set up the Centre for Urogynaecology at CUMH. He is a founding member and Chairman of Continence Foundation of Ireland (www.continence.ie) and is on the public relations and graft committees of the International Urogynaecology Association. He is a reviewer for BJOG, TOG, EJOG, International Journal of Urogynecology and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction and was recently invited onto the editorial board of The Obstetrician and Gynaecologist journal of the RCOG.
