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.
Excision of vulval perineal lesions
Lesions around the female genitalia can occur at different stages of life and be caused by different conditions from cysts to infections and even cancer. A visit to your GP for tests will help to determine the cause and arrange treatment.
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.
Labial surgery (non-cosmetic)
Labial surgery, or labiaplasty, is a surgical procedure to alter the folds of skin surrounding the external female genitalia.
