Mr Ilias Nikolopoulos is a Consultant Gynaecologist at Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
He graduated from Leicester Medical School. After completing his general Obstetrics and Gynaecology training in East Midlands, he was successfully appointed to one of the five posts available every year around the country to be trained in Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery for Excision of Benign Gynaecological Disease. He spent two years in a busy endometriosis centre in Middlesbrough where he was intensively trained in the medical and surgical management of endometriosis and pelvic pain. He is an accredited advanced laparoscopic surgeon trained to excise and treat deep infiltrating endometriosis. Since his appointment in Sherwood Forest Hospitals his main scope of work is the management of women with endometriosis and pelvic pain.
Being a trained Minimal Access Surgeon, he feels very passionately about the advantages of laparoscopic surgery. As a member of the Laparoscopic Training Committee of the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy he endeavours to encourage the next generation of gynaecologist to truly embrace laparoscopic surgery.
Having cared for women with Endometriosis, he fully appreciates the devastating effects this disease can have and is committed to early diagnosis of the disease and individualised treatment.
