Mr Rahmanou treats all types of general gynaecological problems such as menstrual problems (Heavy periods), uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, pelvic pain/painful intercourse, postpartum problems. He does not treat gynaecological cancers, colposcopy, fertility problems and severe endometriosis. These are best to be seen by consultants who deal with these problems in their routine NHS practice.
Mr Rahmanou is a specialist in Urogynaecology, treating patients with pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, recurrent UTIs and painful bladder syndrome. Recent NICE guidelines recommend that all the women with urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse should be managed in a local multidisciplinary team. Mr Rahmanou provides this in both his NHS as well as his private practice. His prolapse and continence surgeries are registered on BSUG (British Society of Urogynaecology) database with patient consent and monitored postoperatively. This is also recommended by NICE. Hi is the only gynaecologist to provide this service at the Nuffield Hospital.
