    Mr Pratik Shah is a highly experienced Consultant Gynaecologist with more than two decades of experience. He is currently a Consultant Gynaecologist at the Royal Free London NHS Trust and also the clinical lead for the Barnet and Enfield community gynaecology services. His key interest areas are menstrual disorders, pelvic pain/endometriosis, fibroid management and prolapse. He is also the undergraduate tutor for UCLH students.

    After qualifying from St George’s Medical School (London University) in 1985, Mr Shah completed his training in a number of London teaching hospitals. He has developed expertise in ‘keyhole’ surgery and performs many procedures in the outpatient setting, reducing the need for general anaesthesia. He is also an accredited colposcopist and sees women with abnormal smears and cervix abnormalities.

    Outside of work, Mr Shah likes the outdoors, enjoys hill walking and is addicted to spinning. He also loves swimming and relaxes with gentle Yoga and meditation. He has three daughters all of whom have followed him in the medical profession. A life-long learner, his main ethos is to continue enjoying his work and family and do the best he can for his patients.

    Frequently asked questions

  • What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?

    The commonest symptoms my patients present with is abnormal bleeding due to fibroids and endometrial polyps but also pelvic pain from ovarian cysts and endometriosis. I also see and treat women with prolapse, menopausal symptoms and abnormal smears (accredited in colposcopy).

  • What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?

    I have a particular interest in keyhole surgery, using hysteroscopy to look inside the womb and dealing with polyps and fibroids, but also laparoscopy to examine the insides and treat conditions like endometriosis, ovarian cysts and adhesions. I offer surgery for prolapse and large fibroids but also see and treat women with abnormal smears and menopausal problems.

  • What are your areas of sub-specialist interest?

    My training was very much in keyhole surgery, using telescopes to deal with heavy periods and pelvic pain. In addition, I'm also trained in colposcopy and offer treatment for abnormal smears. The other area I had specific training in is vaginal surgery, which is treatment for prolapse and doing hysterectomies vaginally.
