He has published in peer reviewed journals on the subject as well as lectured nationally and internationally on endometriosis, oncology and laparoscopic surgery.

Kavita
Miss Kavita Singh
Consultant Gynaecologist and Gynae-oncologist

Miss Kavita Singh is an experienced pelvic surgeon who performs all types of complex pelvic surgery. Her expertise extends to both open and advanced laparoscopic surgery. She has an interest in gynaecological cancer surgery, particularly advanced ovarian cancer and cervical cancer surgery, and she strongly believes that surgery for advanced endometriosis is complex and requires surgical expertise similar to that required for ovarian cancer. She therefore advocates advanced endometriosis surgery to be performed by a Gynaecology Cancer surgeon with the aim of reducing the risks and complications, whilst optimising outcomes.

Miss Kavita Singh has obtained her general gynaecology training in India and England. She qualified in 1987 and moved to UK in 1994 after having worked as a Consultant in New Delhi, India. She obtained her general Gynaecology and advanced training at The Royal Free Hospital, London (1996-2002). As her interest has been complex pelvic surgery, she moved to Birmingham in 2003 to pursue her career in Gynaecological cancer and complex pelvic surgery as is required for advanced endometriosis. Her strengths are providing a high quality of clinical care and pursuing details. She is a Consultant at the BMI Priory and Edgbaston Hospitals.
