He completed his specialty and subspecialty training in London training with international experts in gynaecological ultrasound, minimal access surgery to improve fertility and in vitro fertilisation.

Alongside his clinical work, Mr Mavrelos is an honorary Senior Lecturer at University College London and has published innovative scientific articles and book chapters on the diagnosis and management of endometriosis, the diagnosis and management of early pregnancy complications and the impact of gynaecological disorders on fertility. He lectures nationally and internationally on these subjects and continues leading an active research programme on improving outcomes of IVF cycles.

Research interests

1. impact of gynaecological disorders such as endometriosis and adenomyosis on fertility

2. diagnosis of early pregnancy complications and optimisation of their treatment

3. diagnosis and management of congenital uterine anomalies
