I am a consultant gynaecological oncology surgeon and Clinical Lead in Gynaecological Oncology at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. I completed my training in Obstetrics & Gynaecology in the Northeast of England, followed by a research fellowship at the Northern Gynaecological Oncology Centre, in Gateshead, and subspecialty training and accreditation in gynaecological oncology at the Leeds Cancer Centre. I have extensive surgical skills and experience in the treatment of general gynaecological conditions and all forms of gynaecological cancers. Additionally, I am also an accredited colposcopist.
I offer a wide range of gynaecological services, including treatment of menstrual disorders, post-menopausal bleeding, fibroids, ovarian cysts, complex gynaecological procedures, including surgical treatment of endometriosis, advanced gynaecological cancer surgery, vulval cancer surgery and sentinel lymph node excision, in addition to minor procedures like hysteroscopy and colposcopy.
I have a special interest in minimally invasive surgery (Laparoscopic and Robotic), for benign gynaecology conditions as well as gynaecological cancers, including sentinel lymph node excision. Since 2015, I have been instrumental in pioneering the development and establishing the team to offer ultra-radical surgery for advanced gynaecological cancers at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. Furthermore, I am actively involved in gynaecological oncology training. I am currently the gynaecological oncology subspecialty training programme supervisor in Leicester.
I am an Honorary Lecturer at the Leicester Cancer Research Centre, University of Leicester, with a keen research interest in advanced ovarian cancer. I regularly present in national and international conferences and publishes in peer reviewed journals. I am the principal investigator for the PROTECTOR Study, in Leicester, which offers risk reduction surgery to women with a high risk of developing ovarian cancer.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Supratik Chattopadhyay at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Leicester Hospital.

I am an editorial reviewer for The British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (BJOG), The European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Reproductive Biology (EJOGRB).
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.
