Mrs Renee Behrens
MBBS (Hons), MD, MRCOG
I have been a Consultant Gynaecologist at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital since March 2008. Since then I have expanded the provision of minimal access surgery and developed the early pregnancy unit, a service dealing with complications of early pregnancy.
In my current role, I cover all gynaecological conditions. My areas of special interest include keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery, fertility, reversal of sterilisation, complications of early pregnancy, menstrual disorders, endometriosis and the menopause.
I completed medical training in 1990 gaining honours and went on to do extensive post-graduate training in London, working at both Hammersmith and St Mary's Hospitals. During this time I developed expertise in infertility spending three years working in the Hammersmith In-vitro Fertilisation (IVF) Unit. I was awarded an MD degree from the University of London for research into Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and Fertility in 2009.
A further two year surgical fellowship in minimal access (keyhole) surgery led to accreditation in this area by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. I am also accredited in ultrasound scanning in both gynaecology and early pregnancy and am able to offer this as part of the outpatient visit if required.
