London Gynaecological Oncologists

The medical specialism of gynaecology is broadly divided into two areas that require different types of gynaecological experience, training and skill. These are:


  • Gynaecological Oncologists such as Miss Adeola Olaitan and Mr Adam Rosenthal (on this website) who specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of gynaecological cancers including ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, endometrial cancer and cervical cancer,

Although there may be overlap during the diagnostic phase, these are distinct areas of expertise. Consultant Gynaecologist and Gynaecological Oncologist, Mr Adam Rosenthal who specilaises in ovarian cancer says, "I refer to consultant colleagues in other branches of medicine, including within gynaecology, whenever the patient would be better served by a doctor who is more expert in a particular area than I am. Given the increasing complexity of medicine, this approach is key to the best possible care".

Dr Rosenthal is one of the UK’s leading experts on inherited gynaecological cancers. He sits on the UK Cancer Genetics Group Steering Committee and advises various medical charities. In his article for Total Health, The Significance of a Family History of Ovarian Cancer, Mr Rosenthal answers the following questions:
