Which hospitals around uk offer more treatment options for fibroids other than "hysterectomy" ?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I am looking at hospital websites and types of treatment they offer for fibroids. The two nearest hospitals near my place only offer hysterectomy as the main option.

Does anyone know which hospitals around UK offer more options for treatment of fibroids other than only "Hysterectomy" ? I am looking for open myectomy, kehole surgery etc because I would like to consider more options since I am not keen on "hysterectomy".

I am here reading websites and trying to figure out which Hospital may offer a good range of options for treatment for fibroids ?

Any Advice ?

    Hi 

    Not sure where In the uk you are based. First if the hospital you attend do not offer you the surgery you need they should refer you them self to one that does

    They did for me when I was exploring none surgery option to start and key hole.

    I had meyo at walsall manor west midlands open surgery.  Birmingham women's hospital offer the full range of none surgery key hole and open surgery I was refer here but got turned down cause fibroid was huge.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello, 

    From my experience most gynae surgeons are able to do both open myomectomy and hysterectomy. Hysto is a much simpler procedure though. 

    I personally had my open myomectomy at UCH in London. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! 

    I also got lots of opinions from several private gynaes based around london and linked to Wellington hospital and BMI Kings oak. I went to see a private consultant called Dr Adrian Lower (private) offers keyhole for even large fibroids and is ranked as one of the top 10 surgeons in the country. Dr Saridogan(practices at UCH & also private) is the number 1 specialist for keyhole. I would book a consulation with him and take whatever he says as kosher.

    This is my advice ...again all firbroids are located differently andvary in size so size and location and how many is what determines if one is suitable for keyhole, open or hysto.
