Smruta Shanbhag is a fully accredited and registered surgeon specializing in Gynaecology and Gyn Oncology. She graduated from Goa University in 1995 and pursued post-graduate studies in Gynaecology, during which she focused on Ultrasound studies of pelvic masses for her thesis. Her training journey took her to Aberdeen, Scotland, where she honed her skills in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. She completed her training at James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough, obtaining certifications in Gynaecology and sub-specialist training in Gynaecological Oncology.

Known also as Ruth, Smruta has served as a Consultant Gynaecologist and Gynaecological Oncologist in Glasgow for nine years before relocating to the West Midlands. Currently, she holds positions as a Consultant Gynaecologist and Gynaecological Oncology Surgeon at HCA Harborne in Birmingham. She stands as the sole consultant offering gynaecological oncology services in the private sector within Coventry and Warwickshire.

Her professional interests are broad, including laparoscopic and robotic surgeries, and she actively participates in GMC and Royal College exams, alongside teaching and examinations at Warwick Medical School. With numerous publications in gynaecological oncology, she is deeply committed to advancing the field.

Smruta's approach is patient-centered and comprehensive, covering a spectrum of conditions from menstrual abnormalities to gynaecological cancers. She advocates for evidence-based, holistic care, tailoring treatment plans to each patient's needs, whether conservative or surgical. Patients commend her for her kindness, compassion, and expertise, noting her proficiency in British Sign Language for effective communication with deaf patients and their families.

Her expertise particularly shines in laparoscopic surgery for both benign and malignant gynaecological disorders. Smruta consults at HCA Harborne on Mondays and arranges appointments on other days as needed, striving to provide a streamlined one-stop service that encompasses consultation, investigations, and management planning all in one appointment.
