Miss Roopa Nair
Consultant Gynaecologist / Urogynaecologist
MD, FRCOG, DNB, MCh (Min invasive surgery)
I have been a Consultant at Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust since November 2011. I have around 18 years’ experience in Gynaecology. I did my basic medical training and five years of Postgraduate training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in India. Subsequently, I underwent training in the North East Thames London Deanery, and worked at Colchester, Homerton, Chase Farm and Queen’s hospitals. I was awarded the MRCOG Gold Medal in 2004 by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. I completed a Masters in Minimally Invasive and Robotic surgery in 2015 from Anglia Ruskin University for which I was awarded a Distinction. I was awarded FRCOG in 2017. I am the Lead for Urogynaecology services at my Trust.
My broad experience and training has enabled me to develop expertise in the management of a range of gynaecological conditions. I have completed advanced training in Urogynaecology and vaginal surgery and therefore have particular expertise in this area. I believe in establishing partnerships with patients and enabling them to make informed decisions about their care.
I have a special interest in Urogynaecology and offer a variety of procedures for stress incontinence, overactive bladder and prolapse including tape procedures, bulking injections, Botox treatment and repair operations. I have a particular interest in recurrent prolapse after previous prolapse surgery. I also specialise in the management of perineal birth injuries and perineal refashioning. I offer various procedures including Novasure endometrial ablation for heavy periods, laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery for treatment of ovarian cysts and pelvic pain, hysteroscopy and hysterectomy. I also treat general gynaecological conditions including vulval conditions, fibroids, amenorrhoea, pelvic pain and menopause.
I am the lead for Urogynaecology services at Queen's hospital.
I am an Educational Supervisor for junior doctors who are training in Gynaecology. I also supervise GP trainees and medical students.
I can speak Hindi, Urdu, Marathi and Malayalam.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Miss Roopa Nair at Spire include:
