Miss Saswati Maitra qualified from Calcutta University in 1993. She did her specialist training in the North West Thames region of London primarily at St Mary’s Hospital, London, where she had the privilege of training with some eminent doctors in the field of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. She has been a key member in setting up the new Gynaecology Direct Referral unit at Northwick Park Hospital where women with early pregnancy problems, emergency gynaecology problems i.e. pelvic pain and very heavy menstrual bleeding would be able to walk in and have their problems sorted with surgery if necessary and be discharged home as soon as possible thereby providing a better patient experience.
Miss Maitra’s main clinical interest is in the field of Emergency Gynaecology and high risk obstetrics. Her special interests are in gynaecology ultrasound including 3D gynaecology scanning, early pregnancy problems including recurrent and late miscarriages, poor obstetric history, ectopic pregnancies and one stop gynaecology clinics particularly for pelvic pain and irregular/heavy vaginal bleeding. She is the Lead for Emergency Gynaecology and Early Pregnancy problems at North West London Hospital NHS Trust. She provides a comprehensive range of gynaecological care in most aspects of gynaecology such as general health checks, menstrual disorders, polycystic ovarian syndrome, fibroids, contraception and menopausal problems.
