Gynaecology at London Bridge Hospital

The Gynaecology service at London Bridge Hospital delivers first-class diagnostics and treatment for women over the age of 18. From screening for gynaecological cancers through to surgical procedures such as hysterectomy and laparoscopy, our team of consultant gynaecologists use the latest diagnostics and treatment to provide exceptional care for women’s health. Patients are cared for in our CQC rated ‘Outstanding’ facilities – supported by state-of-the-art imaging and robotics when it comes to surgery.

We have a self-contained gynaecology suite at The Shard in our women’s centre. This is staffed by clinicians dedicated to and specialising in gynaecology. Their experience and expertise ensures a depth of understanding of not only the medicine, but patient needs as well. 

A one-stop clinic

Our gynaecology service consists of a one-stop clinic based at The Shard, equipped to provide the full range of diagnostic gynaecology services, including hysteroscopy and colposcopy. The clinic offers a screening service for ovarian and cervical cancers. As with many cancers, when detected at an early stage, treatment can be very successful. It is vital to try and detect these diseases even before symptoms are noticeable. Our team aim to provide all the relevant diagnostic tests, analysis and consultant opinion in the same visit – although cytology and more complex blood testing can take longer. Colposcopy, loop diathermy, hysteroscopy and transvaginal scanning can be carried out on the same day.

As well as dealing with general gynaecological problems, the clinic provides patients with diagnosis, treatment and management of abnormal smears, pelvic pain, abnormal menstruation, infection, incontinence, menopausal health, ovarian cysts and endometriosis.

Our Private Care at Guy’s Cancer Centre, within a few minutes’ walk from The Shard, is where all surgery and major treatment takes place. Surgical procedures available include:

An outstanding Centre for Endometriosis

London Bridge Hospital’s Endometriosis Centre is accredited by the British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (BSGE). We are one of only two private hospitals that have the accreditation and one of only 15 accredited centres in Greater  London.

Endometriosis is a common, long-term condition affecting up to one in 10 women in the UK. The condition means that the tissue forming the lining of the uterus starts to grow in other areas such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes, causing pelvic pain, particularly during menstruation.  

Our dedicated, consultant-led endometriosis service is run from a specialist outpatient clinic and supported by an endometriosis clinical nurse specialist (CNS) with extensive knowledge of this field of medicine. 

We provide all necessary diagnostic tests and treatments to ensure optimal care for endometriosis, including:

  • check icon

    Ultrasound and MRI scans

    to ascertain the location of any unusual tissue growth, such as cysts, associated with endometriosis. This is performed in our imaging department.

  • check icon

    Laparoscopic surgery 

    is a minimally invasive procedure allowing the surgeon to view inside the abdomen and vaporise small deposits of unwanted tissue with a laser or similar instrument.

  • check icon

    Hormonal suppression therapy

    using a pill to disrupt the menstrual cycle. We may advise a hormonal contraceptive pill, such as a standard pill or a progesterone-only pill.

  • check icon

    Treatment for deep infiltrating endometriosis

    involving more complex surgery to remove deeper deposits of endometriosis which aren’t suitable for laparoscopic surgery. This can occur if the bowel or bladder has or is likely to be affected.

The Endometriosis Centre team

The Endometriosis team is led by Consultant Gynaecologist and Laparoscopic Surgeon, Mr John Bidmead, who maintains an NHS practice at King’s College Hospital. Endometriosis Nurse Specialist Katie Ayris provides patients with extensive knowledge of the condition, as well as offering counselling support should they need it. The team sensitively handles all cases of endometriosis, from the more common conditions to the most complex, and is supported by a colorectal surgeon, urologists and pain management specialists.
