Background Information 
Professional profile:

As a gynaecologist Mr Sengupta's practice is divided into two areas - investigation and management of benign gynaecological disease; investigation & management of suspected or confirmed pre-malignant/malignant gynaecological disease.  Mr Sengupta is the trust wide gynaecological cancer lead clinician and designated surgeon for low-risk endometrial cancers, as well as site colposcopy lead clinician in his NHS trust).

Mr Sengupta's areas of interest in general gynaecology include the investigation and medical/surgical management of benign disease (eg menorrhagia, endometriosis, polyps, pelvic cysts or masses, fibroids, vulval diseases, uncomplicated genital prolapse, reversal of sterilisation). He does not undertake specialist surgery for urinary incontinence.

Areas of interest in relation to gynaecological cancers and pre-malignant disease include colposcopy & cervical screening (management and advice related to cervical smears), ovarian & endometrial cancer screening and advice, investigation of abnormal bleeding, suspicious pelvic masses/cysts & suspected cervical or vulval cancer.  Mr Sengupta operates on low-risk endometrial cancers (within national guidelines) and pelvic masses of low or intermediate risk of malignancy.

Gynaecological surgery performed for the above conditions includes open surgery (where indicated eg laparotomy for large pelvic cysts or masses) and advanced minimal access surgery (where indicated eg laparoscopic hysterectomy, laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy, laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy, prophylactic risk-reducing surgery for genetic cancers, hysteroscopic surgery, endometrial ablation).

Within the NHS, most of Mr Sengupta's work is multi-disciplinary based and individualised to the patient's needs, to ensure a high standard of care.

Mr Sengupta does not offer advice in relation to Obstetric care.
