Mr Lippiatt is a consultant Gynaecologist and Gynaecological Oncologist. He completed the general training programme in Obstetrics & Gynaecology and then did a further two years sub-specialising in gynaecological cancer.
His training was largely at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff; during which time he was also appointed as a clinical lecturer for Cardiff University and obtained a Doctorate of Medicine for his research into HPV and cervical disease. Mr Lippiatt was the first British sub-specialty trainee to undergo a robotic surgery training fellowship at the Royal Surrey County Hospital.
In his first year as a consultant at Poole Hospital, Mr Lippiatt set up an advanced laparoscopy service to treat endometrial and cervical cancer. This has meant less pain, quicker recovery and far shorter length of stay in hospital. He hopes to improve this even further with the introduction of a robotic surgery service to the women of Dorset and the surrounding area.
