Fibroids Specialist London

If you are based in London and have recently been diagnosed with fibroids, you will want to make sure that you find an experienced gynaecologist to advise on the best management of your fibroids. While sometimes there might not be any need for treatment, as happens if your uterine growths are small and you are asymptomatic, medication or surgery are often required. As there are various drugs and procedures available, if you do need treatment it is essential that you receive guidance and care from one of the best fibroids specialists London has to offer. With his extensive experience in gynaecology and the management of fibroids, you can be confident in your choice of Mr Colin Davis as your specialist.

Fibroids Specialist Treatments

When treatment of uterine fibroid is advisable, your consultant gynaecologist will usually recommend the least invasive option when possible. This usually means starting with medication to manage your fibroids. When symptom relief is the goal of treatment, if you suffer from heavy periods, a number of medications can help to reduce blood loss during menstruation. Hormonal treatment options work by reducing the thickness of your uterine lining, while other medications can aid blood clotting and reduce inflammation, both of which additionally help to stem menstrual blood flow. However, as these medications have limited success with larger growths within the womb, you may benefit from gonadotrophin hormone releasing analogues to decrease the size of your fibroids. These work by boosting oestrogen release, but as with any medication they also have side-effects associated with their use. For this reason, your fibroids specialist London based will discuss the pros and cons of the medical treatments suitable for you.

With larger fibroids and more significant symptoms, your specialist gynaecologist may discuss surgical treatments with you. Hysterectomy is now usually reserved for cases when other management options have failed or alternative treatments are not viable. A myomectomy offers a less invasive surgical option to hysterectomy and depending on the size and position of your fibroids, your consultant surgeon may offer a laparoscopic procedure to remove the growths from your uterus. If your fibroids are small enough, you may also be a suitable candidate for hysteroscopic resection of growths protruding into your uterine cavity. This procedure introduces a hysteroscope through your vagina to take away the unwanted tissue growth and is among the least invasive options. In discussion with your fibroids specialist London based, you can make an informed decision about surgical treatment.

However, an experienced consultant may decide you could benefit from non-surgical procedures to control your fibroids. Even if you have large growths in your womb, they may recommend uterine artery embolisation, which cuts off the blood flow to the fibroids using injection of a chemical targeted at the artery supplying the fibroid. Alternatively, for small fibroids located in the lining of your uterus, endometrial ablation destroys your endometrium along with those fibroids. This is also a treatment option when the growths trigger excessive blood loss. However, you should consider that if you want to have further children, these treatments may not be recommended, so if this is a possibility you should discuss it with your fibroids specialist London.
