You have the right to choose where you have your NHS treatment.
At Practice Plus Group we offer free NHS treatments to all patients. You are not required to pay if you are an NHS patient and have been referred for treatment by your GP.
Ablation of endometriosis
This is a surgical procedure to remove the womb, and is used to treat conditions such as fibroids, intractable heavy period not responding to medical treatment or Mirena Coil, or endometrial ablation.
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.
Marsupialisation of cysts
This surgical technique involves cutting a slit into a cyst and suturing the edges so the site remains open and can freely drain.
Surgical procedures may include: insertion of Mirena Coil, Hysteroscopy (an endoscopic examination of the Uterus, or Endometrial Ablation (where the lining of the Uterus is destroyed using heat which is delivered through a microwave energy probe),or if all other interventions have failed, Hysterctomy,(where the uterus is removed).
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.
