Mr Shaheen Khazali

Mr Khazali is an internationally renowned expert in advanced robotic and laparoscopic
endometriosis surgery and in minimally invasive gynaecology. His practice is almost
exclusively dedicated to looking after women with the most severe forms of
endometriosis when the disease has affected other organs such as the bowel, bladder,
ureters and pelvic nerves.

He also sees and treats women with other benign gynaecological conditions such as
heavy menstrual bleeding, ovarian cysts and menstrual disorders.

Almost all of Mr Khazali’s procedures are performed either robotically (da Vinci Xi) or
laparoscopically, with robotic surgery offered at the HCA Lister Hospital (Chelsea) and
Laparoscopic surgery at all locations.

Mr Khazali sees patients at clinics in multiple locations in London (Chelsea) and Surrey
(Woking and Chertsey). 

He is one of very few surgeons worldwide who has formal training in Neuropelveology,
which enables him to offer treatments to those patients where pelvic nerves are affected either by endometriosis or other pathologies. 

Mr Khazali has a passion for training other gynaecologists who wish to become
endometriosis surgeons or those who want to acquire advanced skills in gynaecological surgery. He has trained many surgeons who are now leading centres of excellence both in the UK and abroad.

He is regularly invited to speak at national and international conferences on topics
related to advanced minimally invasive gynaecology.

Mr Khazali has led a number of innovative projects, including an online pain diary for
chronic pelvic pain patients, development of a new laparoscopic instrument to improve
safety and speed of surgery and also has devised a scoring system for assessing
laparoscopic surgical skills of trainees. He is an elected member of the council for the
BSGE and is the editor of BSGE’s video library and forum, which he has helped set up.
Mr Khazali has published in various journals, contributed to a number of book chapters
in the field and regularly presents at national and international meetings.
