Mr David Penman
I studied at St Thomas' Hospital, London and completed my senior registrar training in obstetrics and gynaecology with specialist training in maternal and fetal medicine at St Michael's Hospital in Bristol.
I specialise in all pre-natal baby scanning, with pre-natal screening for fetal abnormalities and Down syndrome, including Nuchal scanning and non-invasive pre-natal testing (Harmony). I offer scan clinics six days a week, including Saturdays and evenings. I also offer gender scans from 12 weeks.
My gynaecological interests include the management of menstrual dysfunction, pelvic pain, polycystic ovary syndrome and the investigation and management of infertility and recurrent miscarriage. I perform a wide range of gynacological surgery, including keyhole laparoscopic surgery for the treatment of PCOS, menorrhagia and pelvic pain due to adhesions/endometriosis. I also perform treatments for endometrial polyps and fibroids that avoid hysterectomy. I offer cervical smears from age 18 years.
Baby scan clinics are six days a week, including Saturdays and evenings. Gynaecology clinics are available on Monday mornings, Thursday afternoons and Saturday mornings. Other appointment times can be arranged. All baby scans are conducted at the Spire Alexandra Hospital.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr David Penman at Spire include:
Spire Alexandra Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
