Ablation of endometriosis
This is a surgical treatment for women who have heavy periods whereby most of the womb lining is destroyed using laser, radiofrequency waves or heated water.
In this surgical procedure, implants are inserted into the patient’s fallopian tubes, causing them to form scar tissue, and eventually to block.
A narrow tube with a telescope at the end is inserted into the uterus, sending images to a computer to give a close-up of the womb. This helps with diagnosis in cases where the patient is experiencing a range of issues, including pelvic pain and infertility. Hysteroscopy can also be used to remove fibroids.
Marsupialisation of cysts
This surgical technique involves cutting a slit into a cyst and suturing the edges so the site remains open and can freely drain.
Surgical procedures may include: insertion of Mirena Coil, Hysteroscopy (an endoscopic examination of the Uterus, or Endometrial Ablation (where the lining of the Uterus is destroyed using heat which is delivered through a microwave energy probe),or if all other interventions have failed, Hysterctomy,(where the uterus is removed).
“Not only was it considerably cheaper than traditional private hospitals, the CQC rating gave me the reassurance that I could expect high standards of care”.
