Dr Rosemary Cochrane

Consultant Gynaecologist

Sur Medispa is a predominately female led clinic treating a large percentage of aesthetic treatments to our female patient's. A large cohort of our patients are within the age range where menopausal symptoms are having a profound effect on their day to day living which was becoming more apparent during our treatment consultation processes. With limited access to specialists in this very complex condition combined with Sur Medispa's holistic approach, we felt we owed it to patients to offer support and assistance with all things related to menopause. Dr Cochrane leads our highly sought after, successful and dedicated Menopause Clinic. We are delighted to have such an incredibly knowledgeable and experienced clinician join our our team.

Dr Cochrane is a member of the GMC, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and British Menopause Society. Her clinical interests include Menopause, Medical Gynaecology (non operative), Ultrasound Scanning, Contraception, Sexual Health including diagnosing and management of sexually transmitted infection, Sexual Problems.

Dr Cochrane trained in medicine at the University of Glasgow and qualified in 1985. Initially she worked in anaesthesia but then trained and worked in Obstetrics and Gynaecology for 24 years before retiring from NHS practice in August 2021. Dr Cochrane was a Consultant in Ninewells Hospital in Dundee until 2015, then was appointed as a Consultant on Gynaecology and Sexual Health at the Chalmers Centre for Sexual and Reproductive Health in Edinburgh City Centre. Dr Cochrane retired from this NHS post.

Dr Cochrane's main interests are in medical gynaecology, menopause and hormone replacement therapy. She also holds a Diploma in Genito-Urinary Medicine so part of her NHS role was diagnosing and managing genital problems (such as skin problems) and sexually transmitted infection. She is trained in gynaecological ultrasound so is able to perform detailed trans vaginal scans for reassurance and to diagnose gynaecological disease. Dr Cochrane has been trained in the management of female sexual problems so is familiar with seeing patients who may have a problem that they have usually found too embarrassing or too personal to discuss with their regular healthcare professional.
