About me

Malcolm Dickson studied at both St Andrews University and Manchester University. He qualified in 1990, and was appointed Consultant Obstetrician/Gynaecologist with a special interest in urogynaecology in 2000. He carries out in excess of one hundred continence procedures per year.

In addition to pelvic floor and incontinence issues, Malcolm Dickson also has a particular interest in heavy menstrual bleeding, polycystic ovarian syndrome and pre-menstrual syndrome. Malcolm Dickson has a rigorous scientific and research interest. He has authored over 80 peer reviewed scientific articles, letters and international presentations. His current research interests include the effect of collagen disorders in pelvic floor problems, biomechanics of devices used for continence surgery, the impact of underlying bleeding tendencies for women with heavy menstrual bleeding and the effect traumatic birth has on a woman's mental wellbeing.

Despite this scientific background, Malcolm would most definitely be described as a “people” person. As such, he is an enthusiastic proponent of taking a holistic and patient centred approach to the management of his patients health needs.

Outside of work, Malcolm is a keen cook and gardener. He enjoys reading biographies, country pursuits, winter sports, hot hatches and running half marathons. His wife is a paediatric anaesthetist and they have two young children.

Areas of interest

Heavy menstrual bleeding; Pelvic floor disorders; Urinary incontinence and over-active bladder symptoms; Pelvic pain; Pre menstrual tension disorders ~
I am very interested in symptoms that are hard to diagnose and happily see people for second or even third opinions.
I am very much a "people person" and strongly believe in treating people as individuals and tailor their treatment to their individual needs.
