Mr Himanshu Borase
Fertility Specialist and Consultant Gynaecologist
MBBS, MRCOG, MSc, DFSRH, DGO
After graduating in 2001, I did my postgraduate diploma in obstetrics and gynaecology in Mumbai, India. I came to the UK in 2005 and worked in Wales initially. Then I started my training in the South West of England where I gained wide exposure in obstetrics and gynaecology, by working in different hospitals and with experienced consultants and colleagues.
I trained in infertility over the last five years and got an opportunity to work in the largest satellite clinic in the UK, the busiest delivery suite in the South West (Gloucester) and one of the largest IVF units in the UK (Oxford).
This training helped me to gain knowledge and become confident in managing patients with subfertility issues and also helped me to be competent in performing various surgical procedures.
I am a competent scanner and like to scan my own patients so I have all the required information. I am confident in hysteroscopic and laparoscopic surgeries required in infertility patients.
I run a one stop fertility assessment at Spire Harpenden.
My patients find me to be very calm, professional, and relaxed as I explain things with drawings and give them plenty of time to discuss their individual needs. Recently, I was nominated for the patients choice award at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Himanshu Borase at Spire include:
Sexual health, post menopausal problems, paediatric gynaecology, menstrual disorders, subfertility, reproductive health, miscarriage, menorrhagia, menopause, laparoscopic surgery, infertility, endometriosis assisted conception, adolescent gynaecology.
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.

I am a good photographer and some of my pictures are displayed in the rooms of the delivery suite at my last hospital. I am a keen reader and try to read extracurricular material every now and then. I like to run and am currently training for a marathon.
