Miss Neela Mukhopadhaya
MBBS, DGO, DCRM, FRCOG FICOG, PG Dip (Med Edu)
I aim to provide a high quality, personalised and individually tailored care. I passionately believe that all women and especially those with subfertility and recurrent miscarriages need a compassionate and approachable clinician who can instill hope and optimism.
I undertook specialist training at St Georges Hospital, London and East of England Deanery (Cambridge deanery). I worked at the Bourn Hall Clinic, Cambridge for three years and gained extensive experience in the management of subfertility. At St Georges I trained in gynaecological and early pregnancy ultrasound for two years as a research fellow.
Currently, I am a Consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology with Lead Consultant responsibility for early pregnancy and Emergency Gynaecological care at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital, Luton.
I am actively involved in the teaching and training of medical students and junior doctors. I am currently pursuing a masters in medical education and am a faculty member at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, London. I am a regular delegate/speaker at national and international conferences and seminars.
Services provided; Management of recurrent miscarriages; Management of early pregnancy complications; Gynaecological and early pregnancy diagnostic scanning; Management of subfertility; Management of menstrual disorders and fibroids; Menopause related gynaecological complications.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Miss Neela Mukhopadhaya at Spire include:
Advanced fibroid surgery, laparoscopic treatment of endometriosis, laparoscopic sterilisation
Spire Harpenden 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.
Miss Mukhopadhaya has completed the PROMISE (National trial for Progesterone in Miscarriages) as a Principal Investigator at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital. She has interests in research and continues to be actively involved in various national and local trials in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
