Mr Bhandari offers a complete service to couples with fertility problems and is an expert in all methods of assisted conception including in-vitro fertilization (IVF), intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), in-utero insemination (IUI), ovulation induction (OI), egg donation and fertility preservation. He is a confident laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgeon and specialises in the surgical management of gynaecological conditions affecting fertility such as endometriosis, ovarian cysts, fibroids, tubal disease, endometrial polyps, pelvic and intra-uterine adhesions and uterine septum. He has considerable experience in the management of menstrual disorders including heavy periods, painful periods and pelvic pain.

Apart from assisted conception and reproductive and benign gynaecology surgery, he has special clinical and research interests in recurrent miscarriage, implantation failure and endometrial immunology.
