Mr Alex Swanton

Consultant Gynaecologist


Specialises in

I graduated from University College London and completed my postgraduate training in the Oxford Deanery.

I have over 12 years of IVF experience both in practice and research. My MD thesis studied women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) undergoing IVF treatment and I have received a number of national and international awards.

My research interests include subfertility, PCOS, endometriosis, recurrent miscarriage and fibroids. I am also an expert in advanced laparoscopic surgery.

I have developed particular expertise over a number of years in keyhole surgery for conditions including fibroids, hysterectomy and endometriosis. I am accredited and fee assured with BUPA, AXA and all other major health insurance companies.
