Dr Anil Tailor is a Consultant Gynaecologist and Oncologist at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford and Ashford & St Peters Hospital in Chertsey. He was appointed a consultant in 2003 and has developed a very busy practice on the NHS and privately at the BMI Runnymede Hospital. He carries out very complex operations on women with gynaecological cancers and is a very accomplished laparoscopic and robotic surgeon. He regularly performs hysterectomies on women who are able to go home the same day or the following day.
Prior to sub-specialising in gynaecological oncology, he conducted extensive research on ovarian cancer screening and as a result developed significant expertise in carrying out detailed pelvic ultrasound scans especially in investigating women with ovarian cysts and postmenopausal bleeding. He is therefore able to provide ultrasound scan check-ups as part of the consultation if required. This removes the need for separate visits.
Amongst his many NHS commitments he is also the main gynaecologist who is part of a multi-disciplinary team that looks after women with a high genetic risk of breast and ovarian cancers (BRCA abnormalities). As part of this team, he sees many women who have either had breast cancer themselves or are at high risk of developing this cancer and are wanting to have their ovaries removed in their late 30’s and early 40’s to prevent future ovarian cancer. The early removal of the ovaries causes menopause and he is therefore very experienced in counselling these women about HRT and guide them through their heightened anxieties.
Mr Anil Tailor is a member of the British Menopause Society and regularly attends their annual conferences keeping himself up-to-date with the latest research on the subject. He has also attended an extensive course on bio-identical HRT and is therefore able to discuss the relative merits of this form of HRT versus the conventional form or the body-identical form which is distinct from bio-identical HRT.
