Mr Supratik Chattopadhyay
Consultant Gynaecologist, Gynaecological Oncologist, Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgeon
MBBS, DGO, MD (O&G), MRCOG
I am formally trained and highly experienced in the management of general gynaecological conditions as well as vulval, vaginal and cervical pre-cancer and other gynaecological cancers.
Annually, I perform over 250 major gynaecological surgical procedures, in addition to performing over 300 daycase/minor gynaecological procedures in both my NHS and private practice.
I also perform in excess of 500 colposcopic procedures each year in my clinical practice.
I have a special interest in developing advanced laparoscopic techniques, robotic procedures and the multidisciplinary surgical approach to advanced ovarian cancer surgery. I have been a consultant gynaecological oncology surgeon at the University Hospitals of Leicester since January 2015. I undertook my subspecialty fellowship in gynaecological oncology at the Leeds Cancer Centre, before joining as a consultant in Leicester. Prior to this I trained in gynaecological oncology and had completed two and a half years research as a clinical research fellow, at the Northern Gynaecological Oncology Centre, Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead.
I am the clinical lead in radical gynaecological oncology surgery at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust.
In the absence of the current chairperson, I chair the weekly Gynaecological Oncology Multidisciplinary Team Meeting at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.
My obstetrics and gynaecology (O&G) specialist training began in Kolkata, India, where I completed a Diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (DGO), followed by MD (O&G), between 1999 and 2005, before moving to the North East of England, where I completed formal training in O&G from 2005 to 2010.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Supratik Chattopadhyay at Spire include:
I treat vulval, vaginal and cervical pre-cancer, menstrual disorders, endometriosis and undertake bilateral salpingo-ooporectomy (risk reduction) and surgical treatment of all gynaecological cancers.
Spire Leicester 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.

Endometrial Cancer, Ovarian Cancer Treatment and Cervical Precancer.
From my research work in endometrial cancer, I have shown that 'tumour-free distance from serosa is a better prognostic indicator than the depth of myometrial invasion and percentage of myometrial invasion in endometrial cancer', and that 'tumour size is a better independent predictor of distant failure and death than depth of myometrial invasion in FIGO stage I endometrial cancer'. I have also shown that intra-operative fluid optimization in advanced gynaecological cancer leads to early postoperative recovery and fitness.

I am married and I live with my wife and daughter. I was a junior level state singles and doubles tennis champion in Venezuela in 1983. Currently, I play tennis in my local club at least twice a week. During the summer, I also enjoy playing cricket as a batsman and a leg spinner. I love spending time with my family at home and enjoy family holidays in the UK and abroad.
