Hysteroscopic Procedures

Outpatient Hysteroscopic Procedures are office based treatments which means the patient walks out after the procedure as there is no need for a general anaesthetic. It is ideal for women who have gynaecological problems but don’t wish to have the inconvenience of needing to take too much time off work. Olivia is among a small group of gynaecologists in Leicester who have developed this service in the NHS and she hopes to be able to bring this expertise to you at Spire Leicester in the near future.

Myosure is a safe, effective and fast way of removing polyps and fibroids from inside the womb with only minimal discomfort. Polyps or submucous fibroids may contibute to or cause heavy painful periods or bleeding in between the periods or after the menopause. Removing them is likely to treat these problems. Removing the lesions also allows for analysis of the tissue fragments to check for pre-cancer and cancer within the lesions.

Novasure is a highly effective way of managing heavy periods, particularly over the age of 40. It works by cauterising the womb lining thereby significantly reducing the heaviness of the periods or stopping them altogether. Success rates are over 90%. You must have completed your family as pregnancy following endometrial ablation is potentially very dangerous. Olivia can offer Novasure at Spire hospital but currently only as a daycase procedure either under local anaesthetic, with sedation or under general anaesthetic as opposed to in the outpatient setting.
