Robotic Endometriosis at The Princess Grace Hospital

020 7908 8001

Payment options available: This facility offers treatments at a fixed price

Welcome

The Endometriosis Clinic at The Princess Grace Hospital was established in 2016. Led by internationally recognised endometriosis expert Mr Peter Barton-Smith, the clinic has over 15 years’ experience in treating complex endometriosis problems related to pain and fertility.  Our caring and compassionate approach enables us to understand that endometriosis affects all facets of a woman’s life, their hopes, aspirations and achievements. Our approach to identifying your condition and finding the appropriate treatment plan begins with us listening carefully and empathetically to your worries, concerns and history. At The Endometriosis Clinic you know you’re in capable and caring hands.

Expertise

We provide a world-class service for the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis, with access to world leading specialists able to diagnose deep disease and rarer causes of pelvic pain, often missed through regular scan. Our comprehensive ‘one-stop’ assessment service often occurs on the same day, with a lengthy consultation and detailed screening and examination. Through this, we can establish a tailored treatment plan, including surgery options with the latest technology, such as 3D laparoscopy and the da Vinci robotic system.

Evidence-based treatment

Our surgeons at The Endometriosis Clinic often publish research on new and developing techniques for the treatment of the disease, setting a precedent and establishing standards. Where surgical intervention is needed, our Endometriosis experts encourage and favour the complete removal of the disease rather than the more traditional techniques of ablation (or burning).

Advanced endometriosis surgery


At The Princess Grace Hospital, we offer robotic surgery for endometriosis with our da Vinci Robotic System. The system allows our surgeons to use a special console and operate a set of robotic arms that are inserted via keyhole incisions into the patient. The result is the best vision (3D-4K, x10 magnification, full HD), the most precise instruments that have no tremor, and can rotate more than a human hand.
The advantage of robotics in complex endometriosis surgery is that it allows more accurate dissection around sensitive structures in the pelvis that are often involved in the disease like the ureters, bowel and nerves.
Mr Barton-Smith began the first gynaecological robotic surgery programme in the UK in 2009 and performed the first UK robotic surgery case for severe endometriosis in 2010 and now has one of the largest case series worldwide as well as teaching and lecturing in robotics and endometriosis internationally. The change to robotic technology has resulted in a 50% reduction on the major complication rates from this difficult surgery. In 2019, The Endometriosis Clinic performed the first UK 3D/4K laparoscopic surgery case to further enhance our ability to identify the disease in simpler cases.
