Why choose Nuffield Health Leicester Hospital to treat your Endometriosis and pelvic pain?

We believe in evidence-based medicine and patient-tailored treatments. We like to involve patients and their families in the decision making process to best suit their needs and make them feel confident throughout their entire treatment journey.

Through Nuffield Health’s Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain clinic you will have access to highly experienced consultants in the field of Gynaecology, colorectal surgery and pain management.

Specialists and expertise

Because of the complex nature of endometriosis and pelvic pain our team at Nuffield Health Leicester Hospital also includes consultant bowel surgeons, consultant urologists, pain specialists, women's health physiotherapists, dieticians and acupuncturists. Onward referral for alternative therapies can also be made.

Our Consultants

The initial appointment

At your initial appointment a complete history is taken including any previous medical or surgical treatments. It is often useful to have a ‘pain diary’ completed beforehand. An examination and pelvic ultrasound may then be undertaken.

Diagnosis

At present the diagnosis of endometriosis can only be made by a 'diagnostic laparoscopy'. This will be offered to you unless a recent laparoscopy has been undertaken by an experienced consultant gynaecologist.

Treatment

Treatment options will be discussed which include analgesia, hormonal treatments (such as Mirena coil™, Combined contraceptive pills, GnRh analogues) and surgery. Almost all operations are undertaken as laparoscopic procedures (key hole). Surgery for complex endometriosis often requires joint operating between the Gynaecologist and Colorectal surgeon. Occasionally a consultant urologist may also be required to join surgery.
