Women of all ages come to us for advice and treatment, including those with endometriosis, painful periods, fertility issues, breast surgery needs, prolapse, incontinence and menopausal problems. We can also assist women requiring a pelvic pain specialist or fibroids treatment.
Obstetric and antenatal services for pregnant women are also an important part of our work. Women may choose an obstetrician for a variety of personal or medical reasons. It is common to have a midwife as well, in an arrangement known as 'shared care'. If you choose both an obstetrician and a midwife, communication between the two is essential. We work hard to ensure that you, your obstetrician and your midwife are always aware of what is happening.
We understand that you lead a busy life and don't want to spend a lot of time in hospital, so we always aim to use the least invasive options, such as hysteroscopic and advanced laparoscopic surgery (keyhole surgery), when diagnosing and treating you. This, along with our ongoing research, means that our patients can enjoy a smooth and fast recovery.
One of the newest services we have available is Ovulation Tracking. If you've been trying for a little while with no success, a good first step is to try this simple option that helps you understand when you are likely to be ovulating and the best timing for sex.
