Miss Sushma Srikrishna is a Consultant Gynaecologist, subspecialty trained in Urogynaecology. She brings over 20 years experience as a Gynaecologist to benefit her patients. Sushma qualified MBBS in 1993 and MD in 1998, obtaining a higher degree in research as well as subspecialist accreditation in Urogynaecology in 2010. She is a member of the British Society of Urogynaecology, the International Continence Society and the International Urogynaecology Association.
Miss Srikrishna's NHS base is King's College Hospital, London, which is widely recognised as one of the premier Urogynaecology institutions worldwide. Following her appointment as a Consultant Gynaecologist and Urogynaecologist at King’s College Hospital, London, Sushma continued to develop her interest in all aspects of Urogynaecology.
Miss Srikrishna has her private consulting rooms at the iconic Shard building and she operates at the state of the art facilities at the London Bridge Hospital. She offers comprehensive treatment, non-surgical and surgical, for all forms of urinary incontinence, urogenital prolapse and other conditions such as recurrent urinary tract infections. She also specialises in post childbirth pelvic floor problems as well as issues surrounding painful sexual intercourse and menstrual problems.
She strongly believes in non-surgical treatment as the first option and has close links with specialised women's health physiotherapists to offers pelvic floor rehabilitation and bladder retraining as first line therapy. However, where indicated, she provides a comprehensive range of surgical options, striving to be as minimally invasive as possible allowing a short hospital stay with quick return to normal life and activity.
She has published widely in the field of Urogynaecology and presented in several regional, national and international meetings. Sushma firmly believes in a holistic approach to pelvic floor problems, looking at all aspects of care, including the psychological impact of pelvic floor problems. Her main interest is in the research related to achievement of patient orientated goals in pelvic floor dysfunction surgery.
Sushma is aware that many of these problems can have significant, and often, very negative effects on a woman’s quality of life. Unfortunately, most of these problems are typically very embarrassing to talk about. At her weekly clinic, women are encouraged to discuss any of their gynaecological problems in a supportive and sensitive way.
Words from Our Patients
I was very anxious and scared of the entire procedure, the anaesthetist, surgery and hospitals stay. However, you really put my mind at rest and along with the anaesthetist ensured a painless and stress free procedure. I cannot thank you enough.
Thank you so much for your time and patience. As you know I was very embarrassed by my symptoms and had lived with them for so many years- your down to earth approach and patience put my mind at rest immediately. Your team, including the physiotherapists and nurses have really helped me get my life back.
I had suffered from bladder infections all my life and really thought I had to just put up with them- my cousin suggested I see you and I am so glad I did. You gave me sensible advice and practical suggestions which really helped- and now for the first time I am infection free! Thank you so much!
Thank you so much . I was so embarrassed to talk about my personal life and the problems I was dealing with but you made it so matter of fact! I am so glad I came to see you.
I came to see Miss Srikrishna for a second opinion. I had been advised to have some more surgery and wasn’t sure. I was very surprised to hear that she advised me to not have surgery and start some intensive pelvic floor exercise therapy, at least till I felt my family was complete. I felt she really listened to what was important to me
I have been seeing Miss Srikrishna for a long time. I really felt looked after and listened to. I was reluctant initially to have surgery; but she advised me about pessaries and fitted me with one as well. I was happy with this treatment for several years. When I felt circumstances had changed and wanted surgery to correct my prolapse, she operated on me. I was delighted at how pain free I was and how quickly I was back on my feet again.
I was so pleased with the care you gave me; I have been singing your praises to everyone! I think you have now seen my aunty and my cousin too. Thanks so much.
