Ms Vishanthi Shesha
MBBS, MD, MRCOG, DFFP
I am a Consultant Gynaecologist with over 15 years’ experience in diagnosing and treating cervical precancerous changes and am the lead for the University Hospitals of Leicester Colposcopy services.
In addition to complex open gynaecological surgery, I have experience in advanced laparoscopic surgery and perform laparoscopic hysterectomy, oophorectomy and adhesiolysis. I am very involved in Gynaecological cancer diagnostics and run regular screening and diagnostic clinics (Postcoital Bleeding, Intermenstrual Bleeding) in the NHS.
Annually I perform more than 50 laparoscopic hysterectomies in addition to complex open hysterectomies (around 30 to 40 per year). Given my subspeciality, I do a lot of hysteroscopy procedures, (200 plus per year) and over 70 Cervical Treatments both as outpatients and under general anaesthetic and undertake more than 100 Vulval procedures.
AT UHL I am the Supervisor for Cancer Diagnostic Services and run a tertiary level Vulval Disorders clinic recognised by and registered with the British Society of Vulvo Vaginal Diseases (BSSVD). I see patients with complex lichen sclerosis, vulval pain and precancer changes of the vulva (VIN) and I perform a large number of minor procedures.
I am very reassured and encouraged by my patient’s positive responses to my clinical consultation, communication skills, decisions and management as evidenced by the compliments they have sent me and patient surveys conducted by our professional body (GMC 360 degree appraisal).
I enjoy my work and this is well appreciated by my colleagues and my patients.
