Our NHS practice supports numerous specialist services at our base (University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire) enabling us to offer a high level of expertise for both our NHS and private patients.
We are increasingly observing a trend in healthcare (driven by patients and research evidence) in favour of minimally invasive image guided surgery (Interventional Radiology). ‘Key hole’ surgery continues to evolve to ‘pin hole’ surgery so that in many instances, your procedure can be done via nothing larger than a needle hole.
Minimally invasive surgery in the appropriate clinical setting often can give results as good as the equivalent traditional surgical operation whilst avoiding a number of the well known downsides of major surgery; for example no unsightly scars, much reduced time spent recovering in hospital, lower major complication rate etc. In addition, Interventional Radiology procedures often can be performed as day-case care which is convenient and desirable for patients.
Patients these days frequently research their treatment options thoroughly in advance via the internet, discussions with friends/colleagues/GPs and so on. They often come to clinic appointments well informed with a desire for the best clinical outcome for their problem whilst being able to choose the treatment which suits each person best. Many informed patients prefer to adopt a minimally invasive approach in their medical care.
We understand this need and can offer expert opinion, diagnostic imaging, interventional procedures and clinical/imaging follow up to give our patients high quality care for their problem.
We can see you privately to discuss your requirements whether you have health insurance or are a self funding patient.
We are happy to offer you an appointment whether you are referred by your GP or hospital specialist. At your clinic appointment, if we think that it is best for you to see another hospital specialist before undertaking any treatment, we are well placed to assist or advise who it may be best for you to see for your particular needs.
Please contact us if you require any more information about our services or wish to make an appointment.
