Mr Chou Phay (CP) Lim
Consultant Advanced Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgeon
I have been a consultant gynaecologist at the East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust since 2018. I was one of a handful of gynaecologists in the country who completed the Advanced Laparoscopy Training certified by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) and I lead the specialist endometriosis service at Lister Hospital. In addition to general gynaecology, I subspecialise in endometriosis and benign gynaecology. I am also an expert in hormone medication use, including contraceptives and hormone replacement therapy (HRT). I offer a tailored approach to the treatment of my patients depending on their circumstances.
I am a subspecialist in gynaecological endoscopic (keyhole) surgery including laparoscopy and hysteroscopy and I have done over 1,000 of such procedures with excellent patient outcomes. I teach other specialists in national courses regularly and continue to be an active member of the training subcommittee of the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy (BSGE).
I have published widely in the field of minimal access surgery and remain an active member of the training subcommittee for the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy. I regularly train general gynaecologists at surgical courses nationally as faculty member.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Chou Phay (CP) Lim at Spire include:
