Professor Ellis Downes, Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist

Personal treatment philosophy:

"As an experienced doctor I try to understand how my patients' gynaecological problems are affecting them and advise an individual personal approach to healthcare - I put my patients' wishes first. I pride myself on keeping up-to-date with the latest treatments, for my patients' benefit, and after nearly 25 years of medical practice I don't rush to surgery or prescribe unless essential."
