Background Information 
Professional profile:

Vani Lingam having graduated in medicine from Glasgow University in 1987 went on to  complete her higher training in obstetrics and gynaecology in the West of Scotland, developing an interest in urogynaecology and minimally access surgery during her training. 
She has the RCOG accreditation in laparoscopic and hysteroscopic skills. In January 2001 after completing her training, she was appointed as consultant at Rotherham General Hospital where she set up a urogynaecology service. In 2004 she moved to work closer to home at Queens Hospital Burton. Since then has been instrumental in developing an  integrated urogynaecology service, ultimately resulted in the unit achieving National Accreditation in 2011 – one of only five units to be recognised in this way in the United Kingdom.

Her areas of special interest are urogynaecology and pelvic floor dysfunction. This involves the management of women with urinary incontinence, prolapse and recurrent prolapse and pelvic pain due to painful bladder syndrome and endometriosis. She continues to see patients with general gynaecological problems such as menstrual dysfunction, premenstrual syndrome, menopause, ovarian cysts, recurrent miscarriages, fibroid and endometriosis and offering key hole surgery for these conditions where appropriate. 
She continues to offer laparoscopic hysterectomy and laparoscopic surgery to treat ovarian cysts. She also has a paediatric and adolescent gynaecology clinic, where she sees young children and teenagers with gynaecological problems.

Personal profile:

Vani is interested in cooking and baking in her free time and enjoys trying different cuisine and entertaining family and friends. 
She enjoys travel with her family learning about life of different people around the world and also a very keen historian. She believes that learning and understanding history means we learn and are able to appreciate what we have and develop ideas to improve our lives. 
She plays badminton as well as swims to relax from work. As her daughter is now off to Univeristy, she has now taken up learning golf with the help of her husband who is a “mad” golfer.
