Mr Alam grew up in Southport, Merseyside, and graduated from the Medical College of St Bartholomew's Hospital in London in 1994 where he was awarded the Matthews Duncan prize in Obstetrics & Gynaecology.
He trained in obstetrics and gynaecology mainly in North and East London and he has also worked in New Zealand.
Mr Alam has been a Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist since 2006, and has a particular interest in the modern treatment and management options for heavy, irregular and painful periods and fibroids.
He is trained in gynaecological ultrasound and therefore for patient convienience, he is able to offer a service that includes discussion, examination, ultrasound and treatment in the same visit.
As a colposcopist he is also able to advise and treat women with abnormal smear tests. If a surgical solution is necessary, Mr Alam is trained in the full range of general gynaecological procedures, including keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery and laparoscopic hysterectomy.
He is keen to promote the use of newer procedures such as endometrial ablation for heavy periods as an alternative to hysterectomy. Some of the newer procedures can be carried out under local anaesthetic if a patient wishes not to undergo a general anaesthetic.
Abortion care is a service that he offers and he can organise private medical or surgical care.
Mr Alam runs a specific vaginal pain/painful sex (dysparunia) clinic jointly with a psychosexual therapist in order to offer both physical and psychological care.
Menopause care, especially painful sex after the menopause, is also an area of expertise and Mr Alam has lectured on this topic.
