Dr Mugdha Kulkarni
Diploma in Advanced Gynaecological Laparoscopy, Speciality doctor in Reproductive Medicine.
Dr Mugdha Kulkarni has been part of the Leeds Fertility team since 2012. She completed medical school and specialist training in obstetrics and gynaecology in India. Before coming to the UK, she spent 3 months working in a missionary hospital in East Africa performing obstetric fistula surgeries with experts in the field. She found this experience extremely fulfilling and gratifying.
Dr Kulkarni initially set out to be a gynaecological oncologist but was then drawn towards reproductive medicine. Her special interests include gynaecological laparoscopy in which she has a specialist diploma from the prestigious Kiel University in Germany, as well as paediatric and adolescent gynaecology.
Dr Kulkarni pioneered the outpatient hysteroscopy service at Leeds Fertility which specially caters to women with fertility issues. She enjoys clinical research and has been involved in various research projects. She is currently heading the endometrial scratch study in the unit.
She also has a number of research papers to her credit in laparoscopic surgery, gynaecological oncology, urogynaecology, fertility and paediatric and adolescent gynaecology.
Dr Kulkarni works full time at Leeds Fertility and always strives to provide a good standard of care to patients. She believes in providing evidence-based treatment by an informed and shared decision-making process between clinicians and patients.
In her spare time (which she wishes she had more of) she enjoys painting and doing crafty things. She really enjoys cooking and interior design and is passionate about travel.
I am very happily married to a general surgeon.
