OBGYN matters Fibroid Clinic aims to operate an outpatient clinic with a comprehensive patient centred approach to the care of women with fibroids. As in all areas of medicine the key to successful treatment of fibroids is in the careful selection of the right treatment for each individual patient. Patients have different needs and it is important that these are acknowledged and that treatment is centred round them.
For many conditions medical treatment is sufficient to either control symptoms or cure the disease. However, in the case of fibroids surgery is often required to achieve treatment aims.
Most gynaecologists are not able to perform keyhole surgery for fibroids and even in those who do their expertise in this area varies widely. What Mr Barnick aims to do is to perform this type of surgery to the highest possible standard, thus maximizing the success of surgery and minimizing possible complications, even in fibroids up to 12cms in diameter.
