Dr. Christian Cerra MBChB BSc DRCOG
Christian joined the Agora Clinic as a Fertility Specialist in March 2021. He was previously working as a Fertility Specialist at the Liverpool Women’s Hospital, the largest reproductive medicine facility in the country. He is currently completing his Master’s in Advanced Fertility Practice.
Christian completed training in both Obstetrics and Gynaecology and General Practice before specialising in Fertility. This combination of training experience led him to develop a truly holistic approach to patient care by understanding a broad range of health and wellbeing issues facing individuals. He is an authority on the matter and recently wrote a chapter on biosocial factors in sub-fertility and caring for the fertility patient as a whole. He also has a real interest in sexual health with a specific focus on health and fertility issues in the LGBTQ+ community.
Christian studied medicine at the University of Manchester, where he carried out extensive research on pharmacogenetics in IVF. This exciting field, thought to be the next frontier in medicine, aims to individualise treatments based on a person’s own genetic makeup to provide safe and effective care. His research resulted in a number of publications in major fertility journals, and international presentations in Europe and the USA, as well as a national prize at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. Christian gained a BSc in Pathology.
Christian likes to relax walking in the countryside and enjoys skiing trips to Italy, his homeland, and visiting his family home in Rome. Christian also has a passion for kitesurfing and loves any opportunity to get into the sea exploring new kitesurfing spots in the UK and around the world.
