    About

    Mr Rehan Salim is a consultant gynaecologist and subspecialist in reproductive medicine at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington. He graduated in medicine from St Andrew’s University & King’s College London, later completing subspecialty training in reproductive medicine at University College London Hospital. Following this, he was then appointed as consultant at UCLH where he led the Reproductive Medicine Unit, developing the NHS IVF service. Added to this, he also had a busy private practice in fertility and IVF at The Centre for Reproductive and Genetic Health.

    Owing to his extensive medical expertise, he was recruited by Johns Hopkins International in 2012 to set up and run the IVF centre at Corniche Hospital in Abu Dhabi, the largest women’s hospital in United Arab Emirates, which he did until his return to the UK to take up his appointment at St Mary’s. He has wide experience in IVF and provides a highly individualised approach to patients, tailor making protocols to achieve the highest pregnancy rates. An area of particular interest is patients who have had previous failed fertility treatment or who are considered poor responders to IVF treatment.

    Not only this, Mr Salim also has a special interest and extensive experience in reproductive surgery and is able to perform most surgical procedures via minimal access techniques (laparoscopy or hysteroscopy) including myomectomies and excision of endometriosis.

    Mr Salim is treating me for a fertility issue. I saw several other doctors before seeing him, but since I meet him I finally have a clear idea of the issues I have. He is very professional and knowledgeable. He is patient and he replies to all the questions I have. He explains everything in details and he repeats it if needed it without getting frustrated. He always keeps a positive attitude and he always recommends helps and next steps to take together. He is friendly and even in difficult moment he knows how to calm me down and how to help. I m very happy having him as my doctor. He is absolutely amazing and I strongly recommend him.

    Honestly having been through five other consultants, I thought I was at my wit's end but Mr Salim was incredible. He didn't give up on anything and showed more determination in my IVF cycle than I did! I couldn't possibly find the words to thank him for everything he did for us. I felt like I was his only patient and I will be eternally grateful to him.

    My wife and me saw Dr Salim for IVF. He is a kind man and spent a lot of time with us and explained everything. He used to call and check we were ok and that was a really nice thing as we felt he was always thinking about us. My wife is pregnant and we will definitely go and see him for another baby. Thank you Dr Salim
