What my patients have said ...

I have just arrived home after my first appointment with you regarding a second opinion. I simply wish to say thank you, once again. You are an incredibly kind and considerate man and I appreciated, not only everything you said, but the manner in which you so naturally relayed the information to me. You have made me a very, very happy lady today and I thank God he has put me in such capable hands.

Fibroids are localised growths arising from the muscle layer of the womb. They are very common and can vary in size from a few millimetres to several centimetres in diameter. In most cases they do not cause any significant symptoms and are merely detected when the woman happens to have a pelvic scan for whatever reason. They can be responsible for heavy periods and cause pressure symptoms such as press on the bladder and cause urinary frequency. They can occasionally also interfere with fertility.


Cancer arising in the fibroid is extremely rare and most gynaecologists would agree that there is almost no justification to resort to surgery for fibroids because of the “anxiety of cancer” as long as there are no suspicious symptoms. In women who are experiencing symptoms related to fibroids, there are various measures that can be taken to alleviate them and most of these do not require surgery. In those who require surgery, it can be performed robotically.
