Mr Chris Mann is a consultant gynaecological oncologist and laparoscopic surgeon, he graduated from medical school in 1988 and has worked in the field of gynaecology since 1989.
Mr Mann has specialist expertise in gynaecological oncology, the management of advanced endometriosis, and the application of minimal access surgery (laparoscopic/keyhole surgery) to all aspects of gynaecological care. He received advanced training in these clinical fields at a postgraduate level from world-leading experts in the USA, France and Germany, as well as from national experts in the UK. He undertook research at the University of Birmingham Institute of Cancer Studies, to obtain his Doctorate in Medicine.
Mr Mann specialises in the management of gynaecological cancer in a multidisciplinary team, as well as in the management of advanced endometriosis as a founding member of the Midlands Endometriosis Clinic. Since 1998, he has had a particular interest in the application of laparoscopic surgery to gynaecological conditions whenever clinically beneficial to the patient.
Mr Mann has been an RCOG accredited gynaecological oncologist since 2003 and has worked in full-time clinical practice in this field, both in the Private sector and the NHS. He was on the original BSGE committee that developed the accredited centres for the management of advanced endometriosis and has recently founded the Midlands Endometriosis Clinic with two other colleagues. Mr Mann performed the first day-case laparoscopic hysterectomies in the Midlands eight years ago and is committed to minimising recovery time and the cosmetic impact of gynaecological surgery whenever this is clinically appropriate, for both benign and malignant gynaecological conditions.
He spends the majority of his spare time looking after his two teenage sons who both have a major interest in a number of different sports as well as music - both listening and playing. Mr Mann also has a keen interest in playing classical guitar, cooking and cycling, and has recently taken part in the gruelling Cingle du Ventoux in the French Alps (much to the amusement of his two boys).
