About me

Mr. Trehan is a Consultant Gynaecologist and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (FRCOG) and a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS). Having practiced in the National Health Service for over 30 years (of which 20 years were as a consultant), he now practices solely within the private sector in West Yorkshire and Harley Street, London.

During Mr. Trehan’s time as a consultant gynaecologist he has been involved in the management of thousands of patients. Through counselling, prescription and surgical intervention, Mr. Trehan has helped many of his patients reach their primary end goal which is usually a reduction/elimination of pelvic pain and/or an improvement in fertility caused by a variety of gynaecological pathologies. To this end, Mr. Trehan has undertaken thousands of major benign gynaecological procedures using keyhole surgery. The majority of his operations involve complicated procedures, many of which are referred to him by other consultants and from other parts of the United Kingdom or abroad (many of whom have had several previous operations by other consultants by the time to come to see Mr. Trehan).

Mr. Trehan is a specialist in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery and has shown a unique new direction to the future of complex gynaecological surgery by proving that almost all non-cancerous gynaecological surgery can be undertaken via keyhole means. He strongly believes that there is very little need for the traditional and widely used choice of laparotomy (open) in benign gynaecological surgery where a large cut is given to the patient’s stomach as it is associated with increased complications, post-operative pain and a slower recovery; and this is reflected in his practice as Mr. Trehan performs almost all major gynaecological procedures via keyhole surgery.

Patient safety is Mr Trehan’s prime consideration, which is substantiated by miniscule complication rates of his surgery in spite of operating on patients with complicated problems.

Women being treated by Mr. Trehan can be confident that:

-Their operation will be undertaken via keyhole means as Mr Trehan undertakes all operations for almost all gynaecological benign conditions by keyhole means.
-Their operation will be completed by keyhole means as his conversion rate (change over to open operation during keyhole) is one of the lowest reported in the medical literature.
-It is unlikely that they will return back to theatre for postoperative complications.
-Their overall risks of suffering a complication is miniscule, and is one of the lowest reported in the medical literature.
-That they will be fit to leave for home after overnight stay. Over 90% of Mr Trehan’s patients do leave after an overnight stay.
-It is unlikely they will be readmitted due to surgical complications.

Mr Trehan has innovated and developed surgical techniques and services aimed at improving the quality of life for women including:

-The UK’s only one of its kind “Overnight Hospital Stay Service” following major gynaecological surgery.
-“Temporary Ovarian Suspension” for treatment and prevention of ovarian adhesions.
-“Total Peritoneal Excision” for the management of endometriosis.
-“Post-Hysterectomy Vaginal Vault Excision” for chronic pelvic pain and dyspareunia following a hysterectomy.

This website contains information on some of the gynaecological procedures which Mr. Trehan performs, a guide to keyhole surgery and information about his practice. A significant proportion of Mr. Trehan’s patients are from other parts of the United Kingdom or abroad and Mr. Trehan has special arrangements for patients travelling to see him such that the amount of travelling they must do is minimized.

Areas of interest

Mr. Trehan is a highly experienced Consultant Gynaecologist. He is a specialist in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery and believes there there is very little place for laparotomy (open) gynaecological surgery as it is associated with numerous disadvantages for the patient. Most of Mr. Trehan’s patient’s leave the hospital after just an overnight stay and his surgical complication rates are amongst the lowest reported in the medical literature. Additionally, Mr. Trehan has pioneered, innovated and implemented a number of services and surgical techniques for the treatment of gynaecological conditions.

In particular, he has a special interest in the treatment of endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, ovarian adhesions, and pelvic pain and infertility relating to gynaecological pathologies.
