Some of the principal treatments carried out by Miss Neelam Potdar at Spire include:
I am a Consultant Gynaecologist and Subspecialist in reproductive medicine and surgery at University Hospitals of Leicester and Hon. Senior Lecturer at the University of Leicester.
My special interest and expertise is performing keyhole surgery (laparoscopic surgery) for management of heavy periods, pelvic pain, ovarian cysts, endometriosis and investigation for subfertility. The procedures I perform include laparoscopic hysterectomy, treatment of endometriosis, removal of ovarian cysts and checking for fallopian tube function; telescopic look into the lining of the womb (hysteroscopy) to take biopsy from the lining of the womb, remove polyps, fibroids and NovaSure ablation; abdominal hysterectomy.
I am passionate about caring for couples with subfertility problems including those related to sperm problems, endometriosis, adenomyosis and PCOS. I am experienced in looking after couples with repeated pregnancy loss and offer investigations and consultation. I perform ultrasound scans for gynaecology if required, at the initial assessment. I also look after adolescents and women for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), period problems and provide HRT guidance.
I enjoy my work and care for my patients. My aim is to provide the highest level of individualised care and allowing patients to make informed choices. Having gynaecology or fertility problems is stressful and worrisome, I am a listener and easy to communicate with. If you are concerned about language, I speak English and Hindi and understand Urdu and Gujarati.
I did my initial medical training in India and since 2001, I have trained in the UK including the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. Over the years, I have gained extensive experience in caring for women with various gynaecology problems, have undertaken research and completed further subspecialty training.
