The gynaecology service aims to provide the very highest standards of care for women in Lancashire and South Cumbria.
The gynaecology service includes the regional gynaecological cancer centre with specialists surgeons, oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and macmillan nurses. The gynaecological service has developed advanced keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery including key-hole hysterectomy, lymph node dissection, correction of prolapse, treatment of endometriosis and removal of fibroids and ovaries. The advantages of key-hole surgery are that patients can go home much quicker and can return to normal living as soon as possible.
We also have a one stop out-patient facility for the investigation and management of irregular periods, removal of uterine polyps, post menopausal bleeding, abnormal cervical smears (colposcopy) and out-patient (Essure) hysteroscopic sterilisation. The urogynaecology service offers modern investigations and surgical techniques for the correction of vaginal prolapse and incontinence. The consultants are supported by a team of specialist nurses in urogynecology, colposcopy, sub-fertility, early pregnancy disorders, peri-operative management that support patients through their care.
We are actively involved in many local and national research trials and patients might be asked to part take in research studies.
- Endometriosis Centre
We have been awarded national accreditation for our Endometriosis centre.
Endometriosis is a common condition in women where tissue that behaves like the lining of the womb, is found outside the womb.
Endometriosis affects around two million women in the UK and is a long-term condition that can cause pain, fertility problems and can also contribute to a lack of energy or depression.
The Preston Endometriosis centre, offers holistic care to patients all across the North West.
The centre has been awarded accreditation status by the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy (BSGE.) We are one of only a few centres in the North West to achieve this status.
The aim of the BSGE is to improve treatment for all patients with the disease. To receive the accreditation, our team had to demonstrate sufficient evidence and medical and surgical expertise and regular audits were carried out.
“We are delighted to be awarded this accreditation. Endometriosis is a long-term condition and can be extremely distressing and painful for sufferers. We are pleased to be named as a specialist centre and we have a dedicated team who are committed to providing excellent care with compassion for our patients.”
