Miss Neelam Potdar

Consultant Gynaecologist

MBBS, MD, MSc, FRCOG


Specialises in

I am a Consultant Gynaecologist and sub-specialist in reproductive medicine and surgery at University Hospitals of Leicester and Hon Senior Lecturer at the University of Leicester.

My special interest and expertise is performing advanced keyhole surgery for management of heavy periods, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, pelvic pain and investigations for subfertility. The procedures I perform include MyoSure procedure to remove polyps/fibroids, laparoscopic hysterectomy, laparoscopic excision of endometriosis, laparoscopic removal of ovarian cysts and checking for tube function; a telescopic look into the lining of the womb (hysteroscopy) to take a biopsy from the lining of the womb) and NovaSure ablation and abdominal hysterectomy.



I am passionate about caring for couples with subfertility problems and provide fertility checks and discussion for improving/treatment of fertility. I am experienced in looking after couples with recurrent miscarriages and offer investigations and consultation. I perform ultrasound scans for gynaecology if required. 

With my expertise in reproductive endocrinology, I provide care for adolescents, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), period problems, menopause and HRT.

I enjoy my work and care for my patients. My aim is to provide the highest level of individualised care and allowing patients to make informed choices. Having gynaecology or fertility problems is stressful and worrisome, I am a listener and easy to communicate with. If you are concerned about language, I speak English and Hindi and understand Urdu and Gujarati.

I did my initial medical training in India and since 2001, I have trained in the UK including the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. Over the years, I have gained extensive experience in caring for women with various gynaecology problems, have undertaken research and completed further sub-specialty training.
