We aim to provide you with a quality service from the moment you call our clinic and speak to our representatives, through to consultation with one of our surgeons and finally to treatment. Your experience with The Endometriosis Clinic is important to us and we work hard to make it as pain-free and as pleasant as possible at all points.
GETTING IN TOUCH
We frequently have patients from abroad, including the middle and far east, Canada, USA, Africa and Scandinavia. Consultations can be arranged via the internet or telephone in the first instance if this is more convenient.
We know how stressful a diagnosis of endometriosis can be so we work to understand your needs, because no two patients are alike. We take your symptoms seriously and explain how they relate to endometriosis.
Your surgeon will discuss the benefits, risks and treatment and will also cover:
- Details about your pain and whether it is due to endometriosis.
- Develop with you a treatment plan that is specific to your needs.
- Discuss your treatment and how it relates to your wish for pregnancy.
- Base the discussion on proven methods of treatment.
A referral letter from your GP is helpful, particularly if you are insured as many insurance companies will require a referral letter in order to cover your treatment. If you are at all uncertain, please call the The Endometriosis Clinic secretary on +44 (0) 79324 14342 who will be able to answer any of your queries. It is also useful if you bring as much information as you can regarding your previous treatments, for example, any previous surgical and pathology reports from laparoscopies.
A first consulatation lasts between 30 minutes and one hour. You will be asked extensively about your symptoms and history. Treatment options will be discussed and you will be able to discuss any questions you may have.
If you have significant bowel or bladder symptoms you may also see Consultant Colorectal Surgeon, Simon Radley or Consultant Urologist, Alan Doherty. If required, they will perform surgery alongside your Gynaecologist.
The Endometriosis Clinic operates from the following hospitals: the BMI Priory Hospital Birmingham; the BMI Hospital Edgbaston and the Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull. You will be seen at the hospital most convenient for you.
For an appointment, please call + 44 (0)7932 414342. or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
