Dr Declan Quinn

Dr Declan Quinn

Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist

Dr Declan Quinn specialises in Gynae surgery, gynae conditions and colposcopy.

Following my training throughout Northern Ireland, I was appointed to my Consultant post in Antrim Area Hospital. My main special interests are management of Gynae cancers, Abnormal smears and Benign Gynae problems. My real passion lies in improving patient experiences in Gynaecology and the Cervical Screening Program. I appreciate that Gynae complaints are a personal and intimate problem and because of this, you can expect a safe, friendly and balanced approach from me. I aim to reassure and make a difficult time as comfortable as possible through an open and honest approach.

Gynae Cancers; Menstrual problems (heavy periods); Menopause and HRT; Colposcopy (examination of Cervix and abnormal smears); Vulvovaginal disorders (lichen sclerosis, vulval itch, soreness, discharge, abnormal bleeding, suspicious lesions, skin conditions of vulva, vulvodynia); Ovarian cysts / masses; Vaginal hysterectomy (including laparoscopic approach); Risk assessment and preventive surgery for women with family history of gynaecological cancers, prenatal testing , early pregnancy scans
