    About

    Mr. Khazali is an internationally renowned expert in endometriosis and minimally invasive surgery. He has dedicated his career almost exclusively to looking after women with advanced endometriosis and has a keen interest in teaching complex endometriosis surgery both in the UK and internationally. He is regularly invited to speak at national and international congresses on the subject.


    He is the senior endometriosis surgeon at CEMIG (Centre for Endometriosis and Minimally Invasive Gynaecology) at Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in Surrey, the busiest endometriosis centre in the UK, accredited by the British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (BSGE).

    His private practice is at HCA The Lister hospital (Chelsea, London), BMI Runnymede Hospital (Chertsey, Surrey) and Woking Nuffield hospital (Woking, Surrey).


    He is a great believer in patient-centred care and spends a great deal of time to listen to his patients and then to explain in detail, the options available and pros and cons of each. Emma, his PA, is a great asset to his practice. She is kind and accommodating and always goes out of her way to make each patient feel special and well looked after.

    My experience with Mr Khazali has been positive from the outset. Mr Khazali is the first doctor that I felt actually listened to me and took my symptoms seriously. He ensured that he explained everything thoroughly throughout. While my surgery was more complex than we initially expected and my hospital stay much longer, Mr Khazali ensured he took the time to consistently check in with me and explain the surgery etc. Mr Khazali also took the time to speak to my husband on numerous occasions during my recovery in hospital which was greatly appreciated. Overall it was a very positive experience with Mr Khazali and it was refreshing to be under the care of someone so knowledgeable. Mr Khazali’s nurse Leandri has been extremely helpful throughout and has supported my transition from hospital to home. She has remained on call to support with any queries throughout which has been invaluable.

    I would like to thank Mr Khazali and his whole team as well as Leandri and James, who was there to explain and assure me of the operation, they answered all of my questions with knowledge and care. This was my first Endometriosis excision operation and it went well, I have seen some definite improvements thanks to Dr Khazali. I’ve been in this pain for just over 8 years now and it was becoming unbearable so Mr Kazali got me in straight away. Thankfully I have been in a less amount of pain as before since the operation which was just over a month ago at the end of November. I was worried that the op wouldn’t go through because of Covid but precautions were taken and it still went ahead. Many thanks to you all. X

    Mr Khazali and his whole team are wonderful, especially Jamie and Leandri. It’s the best care I have ever received. I was so worried about coming into hospital during COVID-19 by myself but Leandri reassured me and I felt so comfortable throughout my whole stay. Mr Khazali explained everything really well and took me seriously from day 1 which was so important to me after being brushed off so many times. 3 weeks post op I’ve already improved. I am so glad to have found him.

    My experience with Mr Khazali has been fantastic so far! When I first had my initial consultation, he started by saying 'Ok, so tell me your story'. Mr Khazali took the time and listened to my symptoms, concerns, and the impact endometriosis was having on my life. He made me feel heard, understood and validated. He explained all my options in depth, encouraging me to make informed choices about my own health. I am almost 2 weeks post-op for excision surgery for my endometriosis, and I have been recovering so well. The morning after my operation, Mr Khazali came to visit me in the hospital and explained the procedure and what he had found. He checked that I was okay and ensured I had everything I needed to make my recovery as comfortable and smooth as possible. Mr Khazali has given me an invaluable glimmer of hope and I trust he did everything he possibly can to give me my quality of life back. I am excited to see Mr Khazali for my post op review, and to see the differences in the months ahead. I would recommend Mr Khazali to anyone and everyone, and I feel so lucky to be under his care! I was also lucky enough to be cared for by Mr Khazali's specialist nurse, Leandri. Leandri first got in contact with me a few days before my surgery; wishing me well, listening to my fears and letting me know how to contact her if I needed anything. After my operation, Leandri phoned me daily to find out how I was doing and if I needed anything. After I was discharged from hospital, I did have a few issues and concerns that I needed help with and Leandri was amazing. She was helpful, kind and reassuring. I actually ended each conversation with Leandri in tears, because she instantly took away all my fears and gave me a huge sense of relief. Speaking to Leandri, I felt so validated, reassured and cared for. Having Leandri made a huge difference to my recovery as I knew there was always someone on the other end of the phone when I needed her. I can't express my gratitude to Mr Khazali and Leandri enough- they are stars!

    Mr Khazali immediately put me at ease. A major issue for women with endometriosis is that their symptoms are not acknowledged by doctors because of outdated attitudes in evaluating women's pain. Mr Khazali's tone, body language, ability to listen without interrupting all gave the right message of respect and validation that my pain was real in the first few minutes of my consultation. This was so important as I was examined very shortly after, but I felt instinctively that he was trustworthy, competent and with a real vocation to help others so I did not feel anxious. He has a palpable drive for excellence in his area of expertise. I feel so lucky to have benefited from his skill and expertise as my endometriosis was very severe and with a nuanced presentation of symptoms which I feel could not have been tackled so effectively by anyone else. I am so grateful that he took the time to check in with me after very long surgery and also in the aftercare. A brilliant, skilled surgeon and caring human being!

    I met with Mr Khazali two years ago now having suffered with extreme pain due to stage 4 endometriosis. Following multiple consultations, scans and two surgeries, I have to say he has changed my life and given me hope again. I had met with several surgeons prior to finding him and am so glad to have selected who I feel is the one of the best specialists for endometriosis. He was approachable, he truly listened to my symptoms and created a plan that would work best for me and my body. My most recent surgery has drastically reduced my pain symptoms and I know I am in the best hands under his care for the future and management of my condition.

    Mr Khazali and his team are incredible! Emma his fantastic secretary is always available and so kind. Mr Khazali’s specialist nurse Leandri Van Romburgh, has been amazing. She has kept in close touch with me before and after surgery - which was very much appreciated. I wish that I had found them years ago! I have been suffering from endometriosis and pelvic pain for decades. I have had a Spinal Cord Stimulator installed a few years ago and have been on a cocktail of strong painkillers. Due to my pelvic pain, my right foot has become dystonic. I had basically given up all hope of becoming pain free and mobile. Following a recommendation from the lovely Carla Cressey of The Endometriosis Foundation, I found Mr Khazali. On first meeting, his empathy, honesty, kindness and professionalism was outstanding. Mr Khazali has to be one of the most amazing people I have ever met. Absolutely everybody who I’ve spoken to about him (from patients to medical professionals) say he is an incredible, dedicated and gifted surgeon and gentleman and from my experience I completely agree. I have recently had pelvic nerve surgery and a hysterectomy under him. The whole experience has been excellent. Every step has been clearly explained to me and the team that Mr Khazali used for me has been superb. For the first time in years and years I am looking forward to a pain free future. I will be forever grateful.

    I had a great experience with Mr Khazali. He instantly made me feel at ease during my initial appointment and his knowledge and commitment to his field in endometriosis treatment is incredibly impressive. I respected the fact that he was very honest about my care and outcomes throughout. I have recovered very well from the surgery and would recommend Mr Khazali as a highly skilled and knowledgable surgeon.

    I would 100% recommend Dr Khazali. I feel confident that he has done what he can do improve my quality of life and excise as much endometriosis as possible laparoscopically. He is an experienced surgeon and I wish I had found him earlier which would have prevented an ablation surgery and a laparotomy operation by regular gynae surgeons who didn't specialise in Endometriosis or adenomyosis. This left me with a massive cut and in worse pain. If I had found Dr Khazali earlier all that could have been prevented. He is very skilled and was able to complete my very challenging surgery. A massive thank you to Dr Khazali and his team!

    I couldn’t recommend Mr Khazali enough I had the best experience possible with having my endometriosis sorted, he was very clear with what was going on and I felt very at ease as I was only 18 when I had the procedure done. I spent a couple of years with another consultant at another hospital where I was told the only option was the pill so after seeing Mr Khazali I was relieved to hear there were other options and my problems were being taken seriously. He answered all my questions and worries as I am also an athlete and I was worried about recovery time and missing training. Everything went well and since the operation I have never felt better.
