Professor John Studd DSC, MD, FRCO

Professor John Studd was a Consultant Gynaecologist at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and also Professor of Gynaecology at Imperial College. He is now in private practice and runs the London PMS and Menopause Clinic in Wimpole Street.

Professor Studd has a long working experience of menstrual health research, beginning when he started the first menopause clinic in Birmingham in 1969. In addition to his research interest in menopause symptoms, Professor Studd has pioneered a number of ground breaking treatments. He championed the use of hormone implants for women with osteoporosis or with severe depressive or sexual problems after the menopause and the now almost routine route of HRT after hysterectomy. He was the first to prescribe the use of oestrogen patches and implants for the treatment of severe PMS.

Professor Studd has written more than 500 scientific articles and written or edited more than 25 post-graduate books on gynaecology.

He is a Founder and a past Vice-President of the National Osteoporosis Society and was a Council Member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists for many years and is also a Past-President of the Section of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Royal Society of Medicine.

Professor Studd has been a friend to NAPS over many years and has regularly spoken at our Study Days for Healthcare Professionals.
