Mr Jacek Waronski joined the MSG in 2016 from the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford where he was a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist.
He says he chose his speciality because it runs through his family, including his great uncle, father and sister. He enjoys it because of the wide range of cases, with deliveries and treatment for women for different aspects of care.
He graduated from the Medical University of Silesia in Katowice, Poland, in 1986 and then in 1994 qualified as a specialist at the Medical Centre of Post-Graduate Studies in Warsaw, Poland.
Moving to the UK in 2004 he worked as a locum in Eastbourne, Margate and Shrewsbury before securing a permanent position at the William Harvey Hospital.
There he worked at the highest level in busy, high-risk feto-maternal units, carrying out many instrumental deliveries including ventouse and rotational forceps and twin, breech and Caesarean deliveries.
Similarly, as a gynaecology specialist he performed hundreds of abdominal, laparoscopic and vaginal procedures (including hysterectomy and pelvic floor repair) and diagnostic and operative laparoscopies (including oophorectomies, salpingectomies, adhesiolysis and the treatment of minimal to moderate endometriosis).
Mr Waronski has a special interest in operative hysteroscopy and the use of the resectoscope to carry out resection of polyps, fibroids and endometrium and treating uterine septa and intra-uterine adhesions.
“Being an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist means ongoing challenge and daily satisfaction. Apart from delivering the babies and operating on easy or complicated cases there is contact with patients and their families, talking, explaining, reassuring. Showing respect and understanding to patients’ fears and ideas. The best part is to find a solution together.”
Mr Waronski is a family person and says that peaceful time at home is his best rest and reward. He also enjoys playing the classical guitar, swimming in the sea, sailing and cycling.
