Miss Sushma Srikrishna is a Consultant Gynaecologist, subspecialty trained in Urogynaecology. She brings over 20 years’ experience as a Gynaecologist to benefit her patients. Sushma qualified MBBS in 1993 and MD in 1998, obtaining a higher degree in research as well as subspecialist accreditation in Urogynaecology in 2010. She is a member of the British Society of Urogynaecology, the International Continence Society and the International Urogynaecology Association. Her NHS base is King’s College Hospital, London, which is widely recognised as one of the premier Urogynaecology institutions worldwide.
She offers comprehensive treatment, non-surgical and surgical, for all forms of urinary incontinence, urogenital prolapse and other conditions such as recurrent urinary tract infections. She also specialises in post childbirth pelvic floor problems as well as issues surrounding painful sexual intercourse and menstrual problems.
She strongly believes in non-surgical treatment as the first option and has close links with specialised women’s health physiotherapists to offers pelvic floor rehabilitation and bladder retraining as first line therapy. However, where indicated, she provides a comprehensive range of surgical options, striving to be as minimally invasive as possible allowing a short hospital stay with quick return to normal life and activity.
She has published widely in the field of Urogynaecology and presented in several regional, national and international meetings. Sushma firmly believes in a holistic approach to pelvic floor problems, looking at all aspects of care, including the psychological impact of pelvic floor problems. Her main interest is in the research related to achievement of patient orientated goals in pelvic floor dysfunction surgery.
Sushma is aware that many of these problems can have significant, and often, very negative effects on a woman’s quality of life. Unfortunately, most of these problems are typically very embarrassing to talk about. At her weekly clinic, women are encouraged to discuss any of their gynaecological problems in a supportive and sensitive way.
