Sohier Elneil is a Consultant Urogynaecologist and Gynaecologist at University College Hospital and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London. She started her career in the field of Urogynaecology in the early 1990’s when she became involved with patients who suffered vesicovaginal fistulas and female genital mutilation in under-resourced settings. This formed the basis of a career that started with gynaecology and went onto sub-specialization in the field of female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. Over the last decade, she has developed the field of neuro-urogynaecology. Her work involves both clinical and basic science research and collaborates with colleagues in the United Kingdom, Europe, America, Africa and Asia. Elneil has been awarded grants for work on sensory mechanisms in the bladder, mechanism of action studies in neuromodulation, the role of chemo-neuromodulation in chronic pain states, obstetric fistula research, and female genital mutilation research.
