Minimal access surgery

The minimal access surgery service at the Royal Free London encompasses:

  • Diagnostic hysteroscopy to investigate abnormal uterine bleeding. This is either done as day surgery or in a 'one stop' out-patient clinic;
  • operative hysteroscopy for hysteroscopic myomectomy, endometrial ablation, metroplasty and adhesiolysis; and
  • complex operative laparoscopy for ovarian cysts, endometriosis, adhesions, infertility, pelvic pain and fibroids.

For fibroids unsuitable for endoscopic surgery we offer open myomectomies. We also offer uterine artery embolisation in conjunction with consultant radiologists.
