About gynaecology

Gynaecology is the study of the female reproductive system and its accompanying diseases and complaints. This also includes menstruation, pregnancy and the menopause.

The male reproductive system is dealt with by urology.

Female reproductive disorders are handled by gynaecologists who in some cases are obstetricians as well. An obstetrician is a specialist who deals with pregnancy and childbirth as well as other female-specific conditions.

Common gynaecological conditions

The most common types of gynaecological conditions treated at Harley Street are:

  • Fibroids
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic prolapse
  • Cancer (cervical, uterine, ovarian)
  • Period pain and other menstrual problems
  • Uterine polyps
  • Urinary incontinence

These and many other conditions are treated in our state of the art facilities, staffed by dedicated, caring professionals. They contain the latest equipment and devices and are fitted out to a high standard. One example of this is the operating theatres which feature a revolutionary air conditioning system that prevents the risk of infection.
