Mr Edwin Omih
Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist
MBBS, MSc, MRCOG
"I love working in the Elland Spire Hospital because of its supportive atmosphere and staffs that are committed to delivering the highest standard of care for their patients."
I am a consultant gynaecologist at Spire Elland private hospital in Calderdale,Yorkshire, offering private gynaecology surgery in our clean and comfortable private hospital. I have over 13 years work experience in the NHS and I have been in my current post as a consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist since 2017.
My expertise is in the treatment of non cancer gynaecologic conditions. I care for women who are suffering from heavy menstrual bleeding and I offer a range of treatments from the Mirena Coil and endometrial ablation using the NorvaSure technique, through to hysterectomy. I am particularly interested in colposcopy and procedure of large loop excision of transformation zone - LLETZ for abnormalities of cervical screening. I also perform procedure to treat cervical ectropion and post coital bleeding.
I offer keyhole surgery to investigate the cause of pelvic pain and treat early stage of endometriosis, and cyst of the ovary. I offer myomectomy to treat fibroid. I prioritise listening as an important part of the consultation, hence all new private patients have a half-hour appointment at the Spire Elland Hospital. This will enable me to individualise the care best suited for my patients' need and well being.
I am a consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist with the Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust. Having completed my primary medical education in Nigeria, I proceeded to the United Kingdom and obtained a Master degree by research with the university of Edinburgh; subsequently, I completed a specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology with the Humber and Yorkshire rotation from 2010 to 2017. I have a wide range of experience and knowledge, but above all, I have a commitment to provide excellent quality patient-centred care.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Edwin Omih at Spire include:
