Mr Gans Thiagamoorthy

MBBS, MRCOG | Gynaecology, Urogynaecology subspecialist

Mr Gans Thiagamoorthy, is a Consultant Gynaecologist and the only Royal College Subspecialty certified Urogynaecologist in Ashford, St. Peter’s and Royal Surrey hospitals.

He grew up in Surrey, gained his medical degree from St. George’s Hospital Medical School and was subspecialty trained in Urogynaecology in King’s College, London. With 14 years experience as a Gynaecologist and a meticulous interest in understanding his minutiae of this speciality, Mr Thiagamoorthy is keen to ensure complete information is provided to empower women to make informed decision about their care, Mr Thiagamoorthy serves as the Information committee Chair of the British Society of Urogynaecologists (BSUG).  In this role Mr Thiagamoorthy is responsible for the patient leaflets, website and all information which is published by the British Society of Urogynaecology. Mr Thiagamoorthy is also a member of the International Continence Society, International Urogynaecological Association, British Menopause Society and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. 

He treats all gynaecological problems and specialises in caring for women who have concerns regarding possible prolapse, all forms of urinary difficulty from persistent or recurrent cystitis to frequent passing of water or urinary incontinence, post birth difficulties, painful sexual intercourse and menstrual problems.

He has a holistic approach to women’s health and strongly believes that non-surgical therapy should always be offered first. However, when other treatment options are required, he is also capable of offering medical and surgical therapies and explaining the benefits and negatives of these with up to date evidence so that his clients can decide on which options suits their needs best.  Mr Thiagamoorthy endeavours to make treatments as least invasive to the lady’s life as possible and can offer small yet effective procedures which can be conducted in an outpatient setting to more complex procedures requiring day or overnight admission.

Having conducted research focusing on quality of life and improving the care pathways for women, Gans has presented nationally and internationally as well as being widely published in journals and textbooks. His NHS practice is at Ashford and St. Peter’s Hospitals and he is proud to continue promoting education regarding women’s health there and is the specialty lead for undergraduate education of St. George’s, University of London medical students. 

Mr Thiagamoorthy supports Surrey Total Health [hyperlink to Surrey Total Health as an advisor for Women’s Health promoting wellness, and can also be seen privately at the BMI Runnymede and Woking Nuffield Hospitals.
