Mr Harish M Bhandari

Consultant gynaecologist and sub-specialist in reproductive medicine and surgery


Specialises in

I am a consultant gynaecologist and an accredited sub-specialist in reproductive medicine and surgery. I have been a full-time NHS consultant at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust since May 2017 and hold an honorary senior lecturer post at the University of Leeds.

I have special clinical and research interests in recurrent miscarriage, recurrent failed IVF treatments and endometrial immunology. I am a founder-member of the Endometrial Research Group in Leeds which has been set up to research the role of the endometrium (lining of the womb) in women with fertility problems.

I offer a complete service to couples with fertility problems. I am an expert in all methods of assisted conception including in-vitro fertilization (IVF), intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), in-utero insemination (IUI), ovulation induction (OI), egg donation and fertility preservation. I am a confident laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgeon and specialise in the surgical management of gynaecological conditions affecting fertility such as endometriosis, ovarian cysts, fibroids, tubal disease, endometrial polyps, pelvic and intra-uterine adhesions and uterine septum. I have considerable experience in the management of menstrual disorders including heavy menstrual bleeding, painful periods and pelvic pain.

In addition to clinical practice and research interests, I have extensive teaching, training and service development commitments. I am a British Fertility Society recognised trainer for five special skills certification modules. I am the deputy training programme supervisor for RCOG sub-specialty training programme in reproductive medicine.
