Having qualified from Leeds University Medical School in 1989, I undertook all of my general training in obstetrics and gynaecology in and around Nottingham.. During this time, I developed an interest in gynaecological cancer and successfully completed a DM thesis on targeted chemotherapy for ovarian cancer. Thereafter, I returned to Leeds for a subspecialty training fellowship in gynaecological cancer surgery and was subsequently appointed as a consultant gynaecologist and gynaecological oncologist at St James's University Hospital in 2002.
In addition, I am a registered colposcopist with the British Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology. Apart from my general gynaecological and colposcopy practice, I am one of the subspecialty consultants in the Leeds Cancer Centre providing surgical treatment for gynaecological malignancy, where I have developed laparoscopic (keyhole) techniques to perform hysterectomies and remove ovarian cysts.
I have regular clinic sessions at the Spire Leeds Hospital (Tuesday evenings and Thursday afternoons) and the Leeds Nuffield Hospital (Tuesday mornings and Wednesday evenings). I also have a Gynaecology outreach clinic at York District Hospital.
Mr Andrew I D Mavor, Consultant Vascular Surgeon & Expert Witness
I trained in Yorkshire and following a vascular fellowship in Toronto, I was appointed to the post of Consultant Vascular Surgeon in Leeds in January 1994. My large NHS practice is based at the Leeds General Infirmary and Wharfedale Hospital. I have extensive experience in the management of arterial and venous disease, including vascular aspects of oncology, endovascular treatments and minimally invasive treatment of varicose veins and hyperhidrosis. I also see and treat patients with thoracic outlet syndrome and related conditions, renal failure requiring vascular access and peritoneal dialysis and vascular aspects of oncology.
I have wide experience in most aspects of general surgery; although from 1994 most of my caseload has been vascular in nature with some minor general surgical work. Since the Major Trauma Centre opened in the Leeds General Infirmary in April 2013 I have been a key member of the Trauma Team and am responsible for the management of patients with vascular, abdominal and thoracic trauma. I undertake regular on-call rotas for this type of work. I work closely with colleagues in interventional radiology and offer minimally invasive techniques to treat arterial and venous disease, with access to state of the art imaging facilities thus providing a complete surgical and endovascular service for my patients..
I have regular clinic and treatment sessions at the Spire Leeds Hospital (out-patient clinics on a Monday evening and treatment sessions usually on Friday mornings) and also at the Leeds Nuffield Hospital (out-patient clinics on Monday mornings). Surgical cases are arranged by my secretariat to suit individual requirements.
