Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a common condition affecting women of reproductive age. If you have pelvic pain, painful periods or difficulty in getting pregnant there is a significant chance you might have endometriosis. Endometriosis is the presence of the womb lining outside the womb. This causes inflammation further leading to pain and formation of scar tissue. Symptoms may vary throughout the menstrual cycle. The most common ones are pain during your period, during sex, when passing urine or opening your bowels, or difficulty in getting pregnant. Less common symptoms include fatigue, bloating and/or bleeding in the urine or the stools, especially during your period. Diagnosing endometriosis can be very difficult. The reason for this is that its symptoms may overlap with many other causes of pain. As well as this, the gold standard of diagnosis is a diagnostic laparoscopy which can only be carried out by a specialist. There are many treatment options available, both medical and surgical. The aim is to listen to your symptoms, tailor the treatment to your personal needs and make the symptoms and therefore your quality of life much better. For more information or if you think you have the symptoms of endometriosis call 01256 315010 to arrange an appointment with our lead of minimal access for gynaecology and lead of endometriosis, Mr George... read more

Hampshire Hospitals leads the way with new prostate treatment available Privately

  Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, has become the first Trust in Britain to carry out an exciting new procedure that could improve the lives of thousands of men. Rezum is a new treatment for the common problem of enlargement of the prostate, which can cause men a number of issues.  It can be carried out under local anaesthetic and has less impact on quality of life than the conventional alternatives. The treatment is now available privately at Candover Clinic to both insured patients and self-payers. Candover Clinic’s consultant urologist, Mr Richard Hindley, recently became the first surgeon in Britain to carry out a Rezum procedure and is excited about the opportunities that the treatment presents. He said: “I am delighted that we are now able to offer men in Hampshire this treatment, which can ease the problems caused by an enlarged prostate quickly and with few side effects.” Rezum injects small amounts of steam directly into the prostate, killing some of the benign tissue. The gland then shrinks as it repairs itself, relieving men of symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate, which include difficulty passing water as well as needing to visit the toilet more frequently and with more urgency. Mr Hindley, added: “70 per cent of men over 70 and half of men over 50 suffer some symptoms due to an enlarged prostate. Until now, we have treated this with medication until it got to the point where we had to carry out a fairly big operation to ease the problems. “Rezum is a very quick procedure and patients can be discharged the same day. It is... read more
