Dr. Lisa Webber is a consultant gynecologist and Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (RCOG) accredited subspecialist in reproductive medicine. She graduated from Oxford University Medical School and later obtained her PhD at Imperial College London, studying the development of preantral follicles in the normal and polycystic ovary. She specialises in disorders of ovarian function and all aspects of polycystic ovary syndrome, including the fertility and non-reproductive effects. She was previously a consultant at University College Hospital NHS Trust before re-joining Imperial College Healthcare. Lisa co-chaired the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) guideline on premature ovarian insufficiency published in December 2015. She has published in The Lancet, Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism and the Journal of Endocrinology. She was a contributing author to the Oxford Textbook of Medicine (5th edition), the Oxford Textbook of Endocrinology and Diabetes and co-author of a patient information book entitled Infertility: The Facts.
Professor Anne Hemingway is a consultant radiologist specialising in infertility. She qualified at Guy’s Hospital Medical School in 1975 and entered radiology training at Hammersmith Hospital and the Royal Postgraduate Medical School (RPMS) in 1979. She was appointed as a senior lecturer and consultant radiologist with an interest in vascular interventional radiology and gastrointestinal bleeding at the RPMS in 1983 and subsequently as professor of radiology at Sheffield University in 1987. Following marriage she returned to Hammersmith Hospital becoming increasing involved in clinical governance, radiation safety and the training of future radiologists . During this time she developed an interest in infertility imaging and since 1997 has performed in excess of 10,000 hysterosalpingograms (HSGs) to investigate women who are unable to conceive, or who have suffered recurrent miscarriages or who have other conditions affecting their fertility. She also works closely with Dr Steven Moser to undertake selective salpingography and fallopian tube recanalisation.
Dr Elika Kashef graduated from Kings College, London 2001, and trained as a general surgeon prior to undertaking her radiology training at HHNT Trusts (now Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust) and her interventional radiology (IR) fellowship at St Mary’s Hospital.
Dr Kashef is currently the Head of Interventional Radiology (St Mary’s Hospital) and Directorate Safety lead at Imperial College NHS Trust in London.
She is active and has roles in CIRSE, British society of IR , and Royal College of Radiology.
Her interests include Women’s health, fertility and benign gynaecology, Trauma, and Interventional Radiology.
Dr. Marieke Smink After my medical studies in Maastricht, I was trained as a gynecologist in Nijmegen. I have been working in the ETZ since 2011. My areas of focus are in particular fibroids, gynecological cancer and abnormal Pap smears. I am also involved in the menopause consultation hour and the vulva clinic.
Dr. Paul Lohle studied Medicine in Groningen and then completed the Radiology training in The Hague. He then started at the ETZ as chef de clinique and joined the department with a focus on interventional radiology.
In his work as an interventional radiologist, he performs blood vessel interventions, such as opening blood vessels in the arms, abdomen and legs (the so-called ‘dotter procedures’ and stenting) or closing blood vessels (embolizations). He is also a trainer and spent time on research, innovation and the introduction of new treatments.
As an interventional radiologist, thanks to new techniques, he can perform procedures without having to cut, with good results. This is also known as ‘operating without a knife’. He treats many patients in collaboration with other specialties:
Surgery: Vascular Treatments (Dotter Procedures and Stenting)
Traumatology, Gastrointestinal-Liver, Lung diseases: abdominal organ and lung bleeding (embolization)
Gynecology: unique in the Netherlands*, uterine/fibroid treatments (embolization)
Urology: unique in the Netherlands*, prostate treatment (embolization) for benign prostatic hypertrophy
Internal Medicine: unique in the Netherlands*, repair vertebral fractures due to osteoporosis
[* Center of Excellence]
Professor Velja Mijatovic is a gynecologist and subspecialist in reproductive medicine at the Amsterdam University Medical Center (UMC). He is head of the multidisciplinary endometriosis center at the Amsterdam UMC, one of the three academic endometriosis referral centers in the Netherlands. His research is focused on tubal (dys)function, implantation and endometriosis. Apart from his clinical and research work, he fulfilled the following positions: past president of the Dutch Menopause Society, editor-in-chief of the Dutch Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, National representative at the ESHRE and member of the scientific board of the Dutch Endometriosis Society.
