Pain and Discomfort

If you are suffering with pain and discomfort in your lower abdomen or pelvis it may well be gynaecologial in origin. During an appointment a full assessment including an ultrasound can be performed to diagnose the cause of your pain. Endometriosis and ovarian cysts can be diagnosed.

If needed a plan can be made to assess and treat your condition with a surgical procedure such as a laparoscopy. Most ladies however can be treated with less interventional treatment plans. If felt appropriate and you wish to have a Mirena® intrauterine system to help manage your symptoms this can be fitted during your appointment.

Why go private?

This is a very personal choice. I believe it allows you to be seen by the Consultant of your choice at a time of your choosing in a dedicated gynaecology suite supported by specialist nurses. The appointment times are generous allowing you time to discuss your problem. It is always possible to see you quicker than in the NHS.

If you require surgery you will receive consultant delivered care at all times and have the opportunity to recover in a private room. We are happy to put together package prices for self funding procedures.
