Phillip Smith - Consultant Gynaecologist in Bristol
Mr Phillip Smith
Phillip Smith has been a consultant gynaecologist in Bristol since 1989. He is involved in the management of general gynaecological problems, such as heavy periods, HRT, and fibroids, and has a special interest in the treatment of uterovaginal prolapse and urinary incontinence (Urogynaecology). During his time at Kings College Hospital, London, he received full training in Obstetric & Gynaecological Ultrasound. He can therefore perform a pelvic ultrasound scan, if required, at the time of the initial consultation. This makes it more likely that a diagnosis can be made at the first visit – a ‘one stop’ service.

Mr Smith is co-director of the Bristol Urogynaecology Subspecialty Training Programme. He is a member of the British Society Of Urogynaecology, The International Urogynaecological Association and The International Continence Society.
Mr Smith works closely with physiotherapists and continence advisors for the conservative management of incontinence. He is a recognised expert in the use of minimally invasive mid-urethral tapes (TVT, TOT) for the surgical correction of stress incontinence when indicated, having performed over 800 cases. He has a close working relationship with urological colleagues at The Bristol Urological Institute, and colorectal surgeons at Southmead Hospital, for the joint management of difficult Urogynaecological cases referred from other centres.

Sadly, not his yacht
He is involved in the evaluation of old and new surgical procedures for the treatment of prolapse, with a particular emphasis on the recreation of normal anatomical support and relief of established prolapse symptoms, with preservation of normal function.
