About me

Professor Christian Phillips is a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist. He has a general gynaecology clinic and specialises in urogynaecology and pelvic floor reconstructive surgery. He has particular expertise in treatments for female urinary incontinence, prolapse and bladder disorders such as recurrent urinary tract infections. He is one of the few consultants currently trained to offer minimal access (keyhole) surgery for prolapse including “uterus preserving” surgery for women with prolapse who wish to retain their uterus.

In addition to his urogynaecology practice, Professor Phillips also provides a full gynaecological service including endometrial ablation for heavy periods and treatments for conditions including endometriosis, fibroids, period problems and pelvic pain. He has full accreditation in gynaecological ultrasound.

He has been the clinical lead for gynaecology at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital since 2009. He has been chairman of the Wessex and Southern Urogynaecological Society since 2011 and Regional Preceptor for Urogynaecology training since 2008.

Professor Phillips has an international reputation as an expert in the field of urogynaecology. He is a member of the Research and Development committee for the International Urogynaecology Association (IUGA) and is invited to lecture and teach in many areas of pelvic floor surgery including to the British Society of Urogynaecologists and Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.

He has been on the faculty of several anatomy and surgical training courses and runs an annual surgical masterclass showing live pelvic floor reconstructive surgery to visiting consultants from around the world.
