  • Biography icon plus

    Joseph Yazbek is a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist and a gynaecological surgeon / gynae-oncological surgeon at Imperial College Healthcare NHS trust.

    He completed his postgraduate training in London working in several teaching hospitals including King"s College; Guy"s and St Thomas"; and Queen Charlotte"s and Chelsea. During his training he undertook a two year research fellowship investigating the role of gynaecological ultrasound in the management of women with ovarian tumours. The principle conclusion drawn from this research is that the quality of an ultrasound examination has a clear positive effect on the management of women with ovarian tumours. He was awarded a research degree (MD) in 2009, going on to complete his general training and subspecialisation in gynaecological oncology surgery at the West London Gynaecological Cancer Centre in 2012.

    Mr Yazbek"s various areas of expertise provide a multitude of benefits to his patients. He is an experienced practitioner of complex open and minimally invasive surgery for benign and malignant gynaecological conditions; fertility sparing surgery; colposcopy; and outpatient hysteroscopy. He is highly skilled at performing early pregnancy and gynaecology ultrasound. His main interest lies in differentiating benign, borderline and invasive ovarian tumours.

    His primary interest is in revolutionising the pathways of investigating and managing women with suspected gynaecological cancers. His expertise in ultrasound, colposcopy and complex gynaecological surgery allows him to streamline the management of women under his care, mostly after a one stop clinic visit.

    This reduces the likelihood of needing to perform major surgery on women with benign tumours. It also promotes the use of minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery and outpatient operative facilities. This is appealing to women as it minimises social disruption during the process of investigation and treatment.

    Mr Yazbek"s is widely published in peer-reviewed, high impact international journals.
