Ehab Kelada

Fertility Consultant

Ehab is a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist with a specialist interest in Infertility and Assisted Reproduction at the Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals (BSUH) NHS Trust, where he leads the NHS Fertility Service. He joined the Agora Medical team as a Consultant in 2010 and is involved in all aspects of the fertility service.

He completed his specialist postgraduate training in the UK and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists (FRCOG). His main interest throughout his career has been Reproductive Medicine where he has extensive experience, having worked previously as a Consultant at CARE Fertility Clinic in Nottingham and as a Clinical Director at the London Fertility Centre (LFC). During his time at LFC he worked closely with Professor Ian Craft, a worldwide pioneer in IVF at the time, to develop a number of cutting edge advances for infertile patients, one of them being the use of the antagonist (short) protocol for ovarian stimulation. This has become one of the most commonly used protocols in IVF. He was also involved in managing the first reported case of CGH (Comparative Genomic Hybridisation) to lead to a successful live birth. CGH is a technique used to screen the collected eggs for chromosomal abnormalities aiming to transfer chromosomally normal embryos.

Ehab is the lead consultant for the Ambulatory Gynaecology service at BSUH where diagnostic and operative hysteroscopy procedures are done. As well as consulting and carrying out fertility treatments, Ehab runs the Agora HyCoSy and surgical sperm retrieval service. He also carries out gynaecological surgical procedures such as hysteroscopy and laparoscopy for Agora patients in local private clinics in Brighton. He is interested in all aspects of fertility care but has a particular interest in reproductive immunology and the treatment of recurrent implantation failure and miscarriage. He has publications in national and international journals.

Many of our Agora patients who conceive successfully comment how delighted they are to be looked after throughout their pregnancy by Ehab at the Royal Sussex County Hospital. In his spare time, Ehab enjoys swimming, table-tennis and snooker.
