  • Colposcopy: this is a telescopic examination of the cervix to investigate an abnormal Pap smear. It is done in the surgery and takes 10 minutes. It may require a biopsy of the abnormal area on the cervix.
  • LEEP significant abnormalities on the cervix may require removal with a wire loop using local anaesthesia in the surgery. It takes 20 minutes.
  • Ultrasound. Pelvic tumours may require identification. An ultrasound can be performed in the surgery. Further investigation may require a laparoscopy in hospital.
  • Urodynamics. Urinary incontinence is usually because of a weak valve or an overactive bladder or both. This is investigated by pressure studies on the bladder and we perform those tests ourselves in the rooms. Weak valvular problems may require physiotherapy or surgery. Overactive bladders are treated with medication.
