Mr Hosam Elhalwagy

Consultant Gynaecologist


Specialises in

  • Non-mesh vaginal hysterectomy and suspension
  • Non-mesh vaginal repair
  • Non-mesh stress incontinence surgery
  • Laparoscopic hysterectomy
  • Laparoscopic treatment of endometriosis and fibroids

I am a consultant Gynaecologist and Urogynaecologist. I am currently the Lead Urogynaecologist at East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust where I have been practicing since 2004.

I have a special interest in urogynaecology. I established an integrated multidisciplinary urogynaecology team across the East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust. I am leading the department to attain national British society of urogynaecology accreditation.

I have extensive clinical and surgical expertise to manage urinary incontinence, frequency, urgency and recurrent cystitis and to perform pelvic reconstructive surgery for incontinence and uterovaginal prolapse.

A subjective retrospective audit of my continence surgery showed a success rate of 86% and success rate of prolapsed surgery of 91% in 2015/16. I have also been interested in the management of sexual dysfunction, including vaginal corrective surgery.

I was elected to the membership of the publication Committee of the International Urogynaecology Association and I am currently the editor of the expert corner of the IUGA newsletter.

I practice a holistic style of gynaecology. I have frequently considered conservative and alternative therapies before resorting to surgery. I particularly like teaching and training in my area of subspecialisation. I will always endeavour to update my knowledge and practice to the best practice according to the NICE guidelines and to the most up to date research.
