Do you suffer from fibroids or polyps that cause heavy periods? Fibroids are an issue for many women – the incidence increases in the years prior to the menopause.

The procedures are performed in minutes, and recovery times are fast. You can walk in to the clinic and walk out of the clinic in the same day.
How are the fibroids and polyps removed?
By using a specially designed camera (a hysteroscope), the doctor can identify the fibroids and polyps to be removed. By using specially-designed equipment (the MyoSure system), the fibroids and polyps can gently be removed without disturbing the surrounding tissue. As these procedures can be performed in treatment rooms, rather than in theatre and no general anaesthetic is required, they are often referred to as office gynaecology.
