Tom Holland has been a consultant gynaecologist at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust since 2016 and is the co-lead for research and development for the women's health department.
Tom is one of the few gynaecologists in the UK who are highly experienced in both the ultrasound diagnosis and laparoscopic excision of endometriosis. He is regularly invited to lecture at national and international conferences on the diagnosis and management of endometriosis, laparoscopic myomectomy and the treatment of ovarian masses. He is also highly skilled in performing ultrasound diagnosis for early pregnancy complications.
Education and training
Tom received preclinical medical training at Cambridge University and clinical training at Guy's and St Thomas'. He qualified in 2001. He completed his postgraduate training in London working in several teaching hospitals including King's College, Guy's and St Thomas' and University College Hospital.
During his training, he completed a two-year doctoral research fellowship with Professor Davor Jurkovic, investigating the role of gynaecological ultrasound in the management of women with endometriosis. The principle conclusion drawn from this research is that ultrasound can be used to assess the severity of endometriosis and guide treatment decisions.
He was awarded a research degree (MD) in 2013. He completed his general training and advanced laparoscopic surgery training at University College Hospital with Mr Alfred Cutner and Mr Ertan Saridogan, both past presidents of the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy.
