Private Gynaecology Services at BMI Carrick Glen Hospital in Ayrshire.
Our well-established hospital provides a relaxed and comfortable environment, aided by an integrated team of courteous and professional administration and medical staff. They have a warm relationship with each other. It’s easy to get to our hospital from anywhere in Ayrshire and it attracts patients from Dumfries and Galloway as well.
We understand that you want to see the right person for your condition. Sometimes patients wish to see a female gynaecologist, and we can arrange that too.
BMI Carrick Glen Hospital specialises in minor procedures that can be carried out under local anaesthetic – if your consultant recommends an operation with a general anaesthetic, they will lead the surgery at our sister hospital, BMI Ross Hall Hospital in Glasgow.
We do not carry out fertility tests or treatment.
Our Consultant Gynaecologists at BMI Carrick Glen Hospital are very experienced and have established excellent reputations in different subspecialties. Some are experts at menopause; others are specialists in prolapse. We will be able to advise you on the most appropriate consultant for your condition.
The four most common issues that we deal with are:
Other conditions we treat include cysts in the ovaries, polycystic ovaries, non-cancerous growths (fibroids) in the womb (uterus), endometriosis and hormonal contraceptive (Mirena coil) insertion.
Our surgical treatments range from operations to destroy (ablate) the lining of the womb (endometrial ablation), treat tissue growing outside the womb (endometriosis), remove cysts, hysterectomy as well as surgery for vaginal prolapse and urinary incontinence.
When you arrive, you will show you into a comfortable consulting room where your gynaecologist will give you the time you need to explain your problem at your own pace.
A pelvic examination almost always follows. Your Consultant Gynaecologist will feel your stomach, put a metal instrument called a speculum into your vagina to inspect your cervix and do an internal digital pelvic exam. These are routine physical exams to help them diagnose the cause of pelvic pain or signs of cysts, infections, non-cancerous growths (fibroids) and early-stage cancer.
Often, your consultant can reassure you about your symptoms while you’re in the clinic after an in-depth discussion and examination. They may need to take blood tests or biopsies of the cervix, lining of the womb (endometrial biopsy) or the skin (vulval biopsy) in order to provide an appropriate diagnosis.
The mainstay diagnostic investigation is ultrasound, a scan that produces sound waves to create an image inside your body, usually done at a separate appointment at the hospital by a specially trained sonographer.
Your consultant may feel that further investigations are needed, whether it’s a low-risk procedure to examine the abdomen internally (laparoscopy) or surgery such as a hysterectomy. They will book an appointment for you at our sister hospital, BMI Ross Hall Hospital in Glasgow.
Typical operations at Ross Hall Hospital include:
Most are day-case procedures or involve a single night stay at BMI Ross Hall Hospital. Our well-equipped private rooms include an en-suite bathroom, television and WiFi to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
