About me

Mr Griffiths is a senior gynaecologist with more than 20 years of consultant experience and he sees patients from Swindon, the surrounding areas and the South West. He also consults with international patients and those seeking a second opinion. As a recognised urogynaecologist he is able to see patients with both gynaecological and bladder problems.

Mr Griffiths completed his formative training in the Midlands winning many prizes and awards. His first fellowship was in infertility and IVF at St James's University Hospital, Leeds. Following a competitive process he was awarded a 12 month funded Fellowship to Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA to undertake research on the pelvic floor and incontinence with the world’s first erect fast MRI scanner.

Before taking up his NHS Consultant post he also worked at the Center for Endometriosis Care, Atlanta, Georgia and various hospitals in New Zealand.

His specialist interests are menstrual disorders, pelvic pain & endometriosis. He also specialises in pelvic floor problems, urinary incontinence and cystitis.

Mr Griffiths is an accredited British Menopause Society specialist, one of just over a hundred in the country, and is also a recognised trainer for fellow doctors and nurses.

Mr Griffiths encourages and values a personal holistic approach to your gynaecological concerns in a comfortable and relaxed setting. He offers fast track appointments for any urgent concerns and will liaise with your GP if NHS care is required.

Mr Griffiths has a wealth of surgical expertise and specialises in advanced and complex laparoscopic (key-hole) surgery for endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts, pelvic floor reconstruction and other benign problems.

Mr Griffiths was a trainer in advanced laparoscopic surgery for The University of Surrey and has taught many of the present consultants. He is currently the principal trainer for benign gynaecological surgery for the O&G trainees in the South West Deanery.
Mr Griffiths is also the Medical Director of The Hysterectomy Centre, the first and only dedicated centre in the UK, supported by a team of committed professionals.

Currently Mr Griffiths is undertaking a Surgical Leadership course for senior consultants with Harvard Medical School.

Mr Griffiths’s patients highly commend his knowledge, professionalism and ability to put them at complete ease saying:

"On meeting him for the first time, he felt like an old friend, made me feel at ease and explained everything helpfully. At treatment times and follow up, the same - thank you David.

"David is friendly and welcoming, puts you at ease and makes you feel comfortable. Very knowledgeable and willing to explain options."

"Mr Griffiths was warm, friendly and instantly made me feel at ease... I knew I was in safe hands."
