Dr Pallavi Latthe
MD, FRCOG, DFFP
I am an accredited subspecialist in urogynaecology in Birmingham and am a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist at the Birmingham Women’s NHS Foundation Trust. I am the clinical lead for urogynaecology and paediatric and adolescent gynaecology at my NHS Trust. I did my clinical research fellowship at the Birmingham Women’s Hospital and the University of Birmingham. My research MD thesis (University of Birmingham) was into chronic pelvic pain. I coordinated the wellbeing of women-sponsored laparoscopic uterosacral nerve ablation.
In addition to urogynaecology (prolapse, incontinence, recurrent bladder infections, painful bladder) and adolescent gynaecology, I provide high quality services related to general gynaecological problems including menstrual dysfunction, contraception, menopause and pelvic pain. I am an active researcher and am a chief investigator on a number of studies.
My consulting and operating charges are within BUPA and AXA monetary limits and I am a registered practitioner with many health insurance companies.
I trained in the UK and India, with travelling fellowships to the Cleveland Clinic, Florida and Nijmegen, Netherlands. During training, I gained experience in all areas of obstetrics and gynaecology. I spent the last three years (2005 – 2007) acquiring skills in urogynaecology, reconstructive pelvic surgery and associated medical fields.
I have published many scientific papers and written two books. I have presented my research both at national and international conferences. I am on the education committee of the International Continence Society and the publication committee of International Urogynecology Association.

I am married to a local GP and have two children. I love to swim and am actively involved in a charity called the Cystitis and Overactive Bladder Foundation. I enjoy travelling to places of historic interests and scenic beauty. I have been instrumental in helping to raise the awareness about female genital mutilation and have helped develop an e-learning module on this topic for the NHS professionals.
