Laparoscopic (Key-Hole) Surgery, Uro-Gynaecology, Gynaecology

Alfred Cutner was appointed as a Consultant Gynaecologist at University College Hospital, London in 1997. His expertise is minimal access (keyhole) surgery and its application in endometriosis, heavy periods, urogynaecology and paediatric and adolescent gynaecology. He is a past chair of the British Society of Urogynaecology and a past president of The British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy.

He leads his endometriosis centre at the Princess Grace Hospital (Gynaecology. co at The Princess Grace Hospital). Members of the Team have worked together in their centre for over 7 years and hence have enormous experience and expertise. The centre consistently receives referrals from other gynaecologists as it runs a tertiary level service.

Familiarity and consistency of operating with the same colleagues result in a harmony of motion and better decision making and hence potentially improved outcomes. Often such surgery will reduce the requirements for bowel resection and ureteric re-implantation as skills and judgement for shaving become greater.

Members of the team run courses for other specialists to observe complex surgery. He has published widely in the field of endometriosis. For further information see Gynaecology. co

  • Minimal access gynaecology
  • Endometriosis
