Ms Chi Christina Ding
Consultant Gynaecologist & Sub-specialist in Reproductive Medicine
MB BS BSc FRCOG
I have been a Consultant Gynaecologist and an accredited subspecialist consultant in reproductive medicine and minimal invasive surgery since 2010. I have extensive experience in advanced minimal access surgery (Laparoscopic and hysteroscopic) and 3D ultrasound for the diagnosis and management of a wide range of gynaecological problems such as: pelvic pain, heavy periods due to endometriosis, fibroids and ovarian cysts. I am also a specialist in sub-fertility with vast experience in IVF, fertility preservation and the treatment of fibroids, polycystic ovaries, endometriosis and uterine septum/adhesions and early pregnancy problems.
I specialise in general gynaecology using minimal access surgery with specific interest in fibroids, endometriosis, polycystic ovaries, tubal diseases and subfertility/IVF/fertility preservation.
I carry out on average more than 500 surgical procedures per year with the vast majority of them (>95%) through minimal access surgery. I perform myomectomy (fibroid removal)/hysterectomy (womb removal)/endometriosis surgery procedures laparoscopically on a weekly basis.
