New Treatments Available
Novasure endometrial ablation for heavy periods (menorrhagia)
Novasure is a day case treatment which can be undertaken without a general anaesthetic. Patients experience minimal pain. Following the treatment 50% of women never have another period, the remaining 50% have very, very light periods.
I have treated over 250 women with excellent results and no complications to date.
Helica laser treatment for endometriosis
Helica is a very fine beam of helium which vaporises endometriosis. It is a very safe technique as the depth of treatment can be controlled. I have treated over 200 women with a consistent 80% reduction in pelvic pain, pain on intercourse and painful periods. Helica is performed in conjunction with a laparoscopy and requires a general anaesthetic. Over 90% of cases would be undertaken as a day case.
Sacrospinous fixation for the treatment of prolapse
Sacrospinous fixation is a technique of particular value for prolapse in younger women or large/recurrent prolapse. I have undertaken over 100 cases with no complications to date.
Transobturator tape for incontinence
This is a day case procedure for female incontinence. It works immediately and women can return to a normal pattern of work/exercise within a week. I have undertaken over 50 cases with no significant complications and to date 90% success rate.
