Career

Mr Justin was appointed as a consultant gynaecologist with a special interest in fertility and minimal access gynaecology at Southend Hospital in Essex in 2009. In 2015, Mr Justin set up a new assisted conception unit at Rainbow Hospital in Bangalore. He was the lead clinician for assisted conception there. Under his guidance, the unit achieved excellent pregnancy and live birth rates. The patient feedback and experience were exemplary for this very successful unit. In 2016, he moved to take up a post at Harrogate Hospital.

Mr Justin is a keen teacher of gynaecological surgery. He has been an honorary senior lecturer at the Anglia Ruskin University and has taught on the MCh programme in minimal access and robotic surgery offered by the University. He is a supervisor for senior trainees who undergo the advanced training module (ATSM) in gynae surgery offered by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG). He regularly teaches at various national and international courses and meetings. Mr Justin has published several papers in medical journals and book chapters in medical textbooks.

Mr Justin believes in a back-to-basics approach to helping couples struggling to start a family. A step-up approach is used to identify and treat correctable problems where possible. Assisted conception is only recommended where there are no suitable conservative options. Over the years, his expertise in fertility surgery has led to many successful outcomes with surgical treatment of endometriosis, womb lining polyps, fibroids, tubal blockage, ovarian cysts, and pelvic and intrauterine adhesions. Assisted conception under his expert guidance is tailored to each couple’s individual needs. His patients rate him highly. Examples of feedback from patients can be found by clicking here.
