Mr Ketan Gajjar
MBBS, MD, MRCOG
I am a consultant Gynaecological oncology surgeon at Nottingham University Hospital NHS Trust. I sub-specialise in gynaecological cancer surgery including uterine, ovarian, cervical and vulval cancers.
I received higher surgical training in managing gynaecological cancers from Cambridge University Hospitals and worked there briefly as a consultant before moving to Nottingham. I have received training in managing gynaecological conditions such as endometriosis, heavy menstrual bleeding, ovarian cysts, labial cysts, and cervical pre-cancer.
I have a keen interest in performing complex keyhole surgery in managing gynaecological cancers. I am a BSCCP certified colposcopist and have interest in managing cervical pre-cancer conditions and cervical HPV. I also have a keen interest in multi-disciplinary management of advanced ovarian cancers. I offer diagnostics services such as hysteroscopy for women with menstrual problems such as post-menopausal and peri-menopausal bleeding.
I have keen interest in research in cancer and I carried out Research MD from University of Lancaster and worked on iospectroscopy methods as a novel diagnostic tool in cancer and pre-cancer diagnostics.
My previous training was in Gujarat, India where I completed MD ( Obstetrics and Gynaecology) from M.S. University, Baroda. I moved to UK in 2004 and received further training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in East of England.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Ketan Gajjar at Spire include:
I provide treatment for all Gynaecological cancers including vulval, vaginal, endometrial, cervical cancer and pre-cancer including complex keyhole surgery and laparotomy for ovarian cancer/masses.
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Nottingham Hospital.
