Por qué es un doctor de primer nivel/Professional statement/Perché è un dottore di prim’ordine

Mr Andrew (Ted) Baxter is a leading consultant gynaecologist in Sheffield who specialises in treating menstrual disorders, such as heavy, painful or irregular periods, all causes of pelvic pain, ovarian cysts and fibroids.

Mr Baxter trained in Manchester and then undertook advanced training in minimal access surgery before taking up his Consultant post at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals. He is accredited to perform advanced hysteroscopic and laparoscopic surgery.

He has a special interest in the treatment of endometriosis and is Lead for the Sheffield Endometriosis Centre, one of the BSGE accredited centres, undertaking surgery on the most severe types of this disease.

He also has a major interest in out-patient gynaecology and undertakes diagnostic and operative procedures in women with abnormal uterine bleeding. In this way, many patients can have polyps or fibroids removed, or even an ablation procedure for heavy periods, without the need for anaesthetic.

He is an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Sheffield and is the Regional preceptor in Yorkshire for junior doctors undertaking advanced laparoscopic training.

He has held positions on the Board of the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy and has been an advisor to NICE. He gives regular lectures on topics that relate to his specialist interests.
