Our expertise in gynaecology

  • Colposcopy

    Need to know

    If you've had an abnormal smear test, your consultant will probably recommend a colposcopy. This involves using a bright light and a microscope to look at your cervix and closely examine any unusual or potentially pre-cancerous cells. Your consultant may also take a biopsy to confirm any diagnosis. At...

  • Fibroids

    Need to know

    Fibroids are non-cancerous growths made up of muscle and fibrous tissue that develop in or around your womb (uterus). Many women are unaware they have fibroids because they do not necessarily exhibit any symptoms. However, in some cases it can have a severe and damaging impact on quality of life due...

  • HPV DNA test

    Need to know

    Most types of HPV are symptomless. They usually clear up on their own without leading to future complications. However, if you have a certain type of high-risk HPV, it could be a sign that you're more likely to develop cervical cancer. The HPV DNA test screens for the highest risk forms of HPV.

  • Laparoscopy gynaecology

    Need to know

  • Pelvic ultrasound vaginal

    Need to know

    A transvaginal ultrasound is a similar experience to a cervical smear. It may feel a little bit uncomfortable or embarrassing, but it shouldn't hurt.

  • Physio after gynaecological surgery

    Need to know

    Even though gynaecological surgery affects you internally rather than externally, physiotherapy can help speed up your recovery and reduce the chance of long-term side effects. Depending on the type of surgery you've had, you'll be assessed by one of our physiotherapists. If they think you could...

  • Vaginal hysterectomy

    Need to know

    As well as your uterus, your surgeon may remove your cervix (neck of the uterus) too. In some cases they might also remove your fallopian tubes and ovaries. This operation can treat non-cancerous tumours called fibroids, endometriosis, heavy bleeding, pelvic pain and cancer. 

  • Vaginal repair surgery

    Need to know

    The wall of your vagina acts as a support structure that holds your pelvic organs, such as your womb, bowel and bladder in place. If the muscles and ligaments supporting your pelvic organs weaken, one or more of your pelvic organs can slip down or bulge into your vagina. Pelvic surgery can help to correct...

  • Monalisa laser therapy

    Need to know

    MonaLisa Touch® works by applying a gentle laser therapy to your vaginal walls. This stimulates the production of new collagen, rehydrating and tightening the membrane lining of your vaginal wall. Your consultant will administer treatment in tiny dots, meaning only a tiny area is affected at a time.

Our gynaecologists

HCA UK provide a streamline service to aid a rapid diagnosis of many gynaecological conditions. Our experienced doctors and nurses support you throughout your treatment and recovery.

Under our care, you'll be looked after by an experienced consultant gynaecologist who is dedicated to your health and well being.

Some of our gynaecologists also specialise in more focused areas of this specialty including, gynaecological oncology and urogynaecology.

Robotics and Gynaecology

Robotic technology has made hysterectomies far safer and less invasive.

By using a robotically assisted laparoscopic technique, the surgeon has a greater view which allows them to be much more accurate throughout the procedure.

It also reduces the chance of the surgeon having to convert to an open operation in comparison to a standard laparoscopic approach where visibility may be limited.

Celebrating 30 years of Lister Fertility Clinic

To celebrate Lister Fertility Clinic turning 30, Dr James Nicopoullos and Dr Yau Thum talk about the history of the clinic and how they continue to use the latest techniques in fertility treatment.


We also meet three former patients of the clinic and hear their stories.
