Can anyone recommend a specialist in Manchester or North West area?

I've had numerous surgeries last year including a laparotomy for severe endo - ovaries, bowels, pelvis, bladder, pouch of Douglas. Also got adhesions - both ovaries, colon, bladder etc etc.....

Tried prostap, the pill and so on.

I see a gyne in Manchester but now think that they are not sure where to go next. I go to pain clinic to manage pain but I'm now throwing up the pain killers.....

Can anyone recommend a specialist where I can get a second opinion on what to do next? I'm just worried about changing specialist and having to start from the beginning experienced in endo.

Any advice please?? Xx

  • I had a lap for endo with Andrew Pickersgill at Stepping Hill Hospital earlier this year. I've previously had surgery 5 times with other consultants in the North West but Dr Pickersgill's expertise was by far the best. My post-op pain/swelling was minimal and I only wish I'd found him sooner. I believe patients come from far and wide to see him, he has an excellent reputation. Good luck! x

  • What abour Mr Edi-Osagie at St Mary's Hospital? He has operated on me twice laparoscopically for stage 4 recto-vaginal endo...

    The man is amazing, and I have nothing but good things to say about him... and neither do his colleagues or patients.... (I work at the Trust)

    He does have a waiting list to see him, but it will be worth it...

    Good Luck xx

  • Thanks for the replies. I have heard good things about both of these specialists and am going to see my GP about getting an appointment. I've just read my original post back and I think I'd has too many painkillers, the last bit doesn't make that much sense! Thanks again for the advice. Xxx

  • Andy Pickersgill based at Stepping Hill is fantastic - he has doen several operations for me - he surgically removes the endo and this can improve things for years

  • David Rowlands is the lead consultant at the BSGE accredited Endometriosis Centre at the Wirral University Teaching Hospital. This is the only Endo centre in the North West, so I guess that centre would be one to consider. You can opt for a referral to this centre from your GP via the Choose and Book system too.

  • Thanks this is great. I will research them all.

    Will a new hospital/ consultant be able to request all of my notes from my current hospital? Having to explain everything from the start again will be a nightmare. x

  • Hi too have had several surgeries under Mr PIckersgill's care and he is still looking after me now I am in early menopause. He has excellent surgery skills and is also really patient. He also answers any queries you have if you forget something or need to ask a question inbetween appts.
