We provide a breadth of expertise and supportive services for a wide range of conditions that can affect the female reproductive system, from urinary tract infections to ovarian cancer. Our consultant gynaecologists and physicians are here to advise you on any aspect of your reproductive health, including fertility problems, contraception, abnormal smear tests and difficulties associated with the menopause. 

Expertise in gynaecology

HCA UK provide a streamline service to aid a rapid diagnosis of many gynaecological conditions. Our experienced doctors and nurses support you throughout your treatment and recovery.

  • Colposcopy

    Need to know

    If you've had an abnormal smear test, your consultant will probably recommend a colposcopy. This involves using a bright light and a microscope to look at your cervix and closely examine any unusual or potentially pre-cancerous cells. Your consultant may also take a biopsy to confirm any diagnosis.

  • Fibroids

    Need to know

    Fibroids are non-cancerous growths made up of muscle and fibrous tissue that develop in or around your womb (uterus). Many women are unaware they have fibroids because they do not necessarily exhibit any symptoms. However, in some cases it can have a severe and damaging impact on quality of life due...

  • HPV DNA test

    Need to know

    Most types of HPV are symptomless. They usually clear up on their own without leading to future complications. However, if you have a certain type of high-risk HPV, it could be a sign that you're more likely to develop cervical cancer. The HPV DNA test screens for the highest risk forms of HPV.

  • Hysteroscopy

    Need to know

    A hysteroscopy is carried out using a thin telescope called a hysteroscope. It's used to diagnose or treat problems with your uterus. It can be used to diagnose or treat abnormal bleeding, or to remove abnormal growths, like fibroids or polyps. It can also be used to retrieve lost IUD coils.

  • Laparoscopy gynaecology

    Need to know

    A laparoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure. It involves using a keyhole camera (laparoscope) to examine the pelvis, womb, fallopian tubes and ovaries via the belly button. It can be used to diagnose or treat gynaecological conditions.

  • Pelvic ultrasound vaginal

    Need to know

    A pelvic ultrasound can help your consultant diagnose conditions such as endometriosis or fibroids, as well as assessing the general health of the womb lining. It can be used to investigate pelvic pain or abnormal vaginal bleeding. It is also one of the key components of a fertility assessment.

  • Physio after gynaecological surgery

    Need to know

    Even though gynaecological surgery affects you internally rather than externally, physiotherapy can help speed up your recovery and reduce the chance of long-term side effects. Depending on the type of surgery you've had, you'll be assessed by one of our physiotherapists. If they think you could...

  • Vaginal hysterectomy

    Need to know

    As well as your uterus, your surgeon may remove your cervix (neck of the uterus) too. In some cases they might also remove your fallopian tubes and ovaries. This operation can treat non-cancerous tumours called fibroids, endometriosis, heavy bleeding, pelvic pain and cancer. 

  • Vaginal repair surgery

    Need to know

    The wall of your vagina acts as a support structure that holds your pelvic organs, such as your womb, bowel and bladder in place. If the muscles and ligaments supporting your pelvic organs weaken, one or more of your pelvic organs can slip down or bulge into your vagina. Surgery can help to correct this.

  • Monalisa laser therapy

    Need to know

    MonaLisa Touch® works by applying a gentle laser therapy to your vaginal walls. This stimulates the production of new collagen, rehydrating and tightening the membrane lining of your vaginal wall. Your consultant will administer treatment in tiny dots, meaning only a tiny area is affected at a time.

Our gynaecologists

Under our care, you'll be looked after by an experienced consultant gynaecologist who is dedicated to your health and well being.

Some of our gynaecologists also specialise in more focused areas of this specialty including, gynaecological oncology and urogynaecology.
