Mr Stuart Lavery
Divisional Clinical Director at UCLH

Mr Stuart Lavery is the Divisional Clinical Director for Women’s Health at UCLH. He works as a Consultant in Reproductive Medicine and Surgery with a special interest in Fertility Preservation. He is an honorary Associate Professor at UCL and also holds honorary academic positions with Imperial College London, ICRF and the University of Oxford. Previously he was a Consultant in Reproductive Medicine and Surgery at the Hammersmith Hospital where he was medical director and HFEA Person Responsible of IVF Hammersmith for 15 years, and a Founder Director of the Fertility Partnership, the largest provider of fertility services in northern Europe. He has served on multiple advisory boards in the pharmaceutical and FemTech fields. His research interests are fertility preservation and preimplantation genetic testing, and has published over 60 peer reviewed academic articles, and presented both nationally and internationally.

Melanie Brown
Nutritionist

Melanie Brown is a nutritionist working for twenty years with both men and women to improve their fertility through diet and lifestyle. She has a particular interest in PCOS and endometriosis, two conditions that can affect fertility but can also be managed very effectively through diet. Preparation for IVF is a key part of Mel's work and she is also very active in raising awareness of male infertility. Her Masters research project looked at the effect of male obesity on IVF outcome and she works closely with leading specialists in this field. Mel is very aware that people need to leave her consultations feeling positive and excited about her plan for them and she is not a person that bans everything. "There's no point and anyway treats are vital for good endorphins" she says "and I love a glass of wine, fish and chips and a bar of chocolate as much as anyone! Quality over quantity, it's all about balance"

Mr Jonathan Ramsay
Male Fertility Specialist

Jonathan Ramsay is a urologist who specialises exclusively in the diagnosis and treatment of sub fertile and infertile men. His approach is to treat the man to improve chances of natural and assisted fertility outcomes.

Jonathan trained at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London and spent his NHS consultant career at Hammersmith and Chelsea Westminster Hospital. Recently retired from Hammersmith, Jonathan maintains contact with colleagues at Imperial and at Hammersmith where he remains an HFEA licence holder.

Although each couple’s journey may seem similar, investigations can lead to understanding and diagnosis and thus a more rational and sensitive approach to their management. Mr Ramsay's research interests and recent publications include the reasons for poor quality sperm and the relationship of semen analysis, DNA quality of sperm and evidence of inflammation in the genital tract. We are particularly interested in trying to explain (and treat) unexplained infertility either to avoid IVF and ICSI or to make further cycle of treatments more successful. Current research is involved with in-depth assessment of surgically-retrieved sperm both in cases of non-obstructive and obstructive azoospermia and vasectomy reversal.
