    About

     Mr Mutema is a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist with a special interest in
    Urogynaecology.  

    He achieved his undergraduate qualification in 2001 and subsequently undertook training in Obstetrics & Gynaecology in the Northwest deanery, where I gained a wider experience in general Obstetrics and Gynaecology patient management. Mr Mutema then undertook further sub-specialty training in Urogynaecology at Liverpool Women’s Hospital, where he widened his experience in all aspects of female pelvic floor problems including vaginal prolapse, obstetric anal sphincter injuries and urinary incontinence.  

    Mr Mutema was awarded the certificate of Completion of Specialist Training in Obstetrics & Gynaecology with in 2015 and I have been working as a consultant at Blackpool Teaching Hospital NHS Trust since then. 

    Within urogynaecology, Mr Mutema's main area of expertise is in the management of pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence. With evidence favouring better recovery and outcomes from day case surgery, he has spearheaded day case pelvic floor surgery and vaginal hysterectomy practice within his region since becoming a consultant.
    Mr Mutema is also a highly skilled Laparoscopic surgeon treating menstrual problems and pelvic pain.

    I found Mr Mutema very helpful on my visit to Spire this week, I was very emotional and worried, he spent time to explain, was very empathetic and understanding towards me and I learnt much about my condition I did not know. I would also like to say the nurse that was on duty with him was great, I can only say I received a first class service from both of them
