At Blackheath Hospital in South East London, our consultant gynaecologists provide services to treat a range of gynaecological problems.
A hysterectomy is a procedure that involves the removal of the womb. The procedure can be needed for several reasons, from fibroids to endometriosis. Our consultants would only advise a hysterectomy if it was absolutely necessary.
We provide a complete service from pre-surgery to aftercare ensuring that you receive the best possible care with us.
Gynaecological laparoscopy & hysteroscopy
The gynaecological laparoscopy is a diagnostic procedure used to investigate the pelvic area, using a small telescope. This can help a consultant determine what condition you may have.
A hysteroscopy is normally used to diagnose and treat uterine conditions.
Vaginal wall repair
Vaginal wall repair is a procedure used for a condition called vaginal prolapse. The vagina wall can weaken from the front (anterior) or the back (posterior).
The anterior colporrhaphy is the repair to the front wall of the vagina and will help to prevent bulging from the bladder into the vaginal wall.
The posterior colporrhaphy is the repair to the rear wall of the vagina. The procedure will help to prevent bulging from the rectum into the vaginal wall.
An oophorectomy is a procedure to remove one or both of your ovaries. This is either performed as a unilateral oophorectomy (one ovary) or bilateral oophorectomy (both ovaries).
It may need to be performed for many reasons. If you require this surgery your consultant will explain the procedure and any concerns, you have in as much detail as you need.
Sterilisation is normally intended to be permanent. However, reversal is possible, but the outcome cannot be guaranteed.
The procedure is performed using keyhole surgery and laparoscope, which is a small camera. The fallopian tubes are reconnected to reverse the sterilisation.
