Urogynaecology at Benenden Hospital

Urogynaecology, a gynaecology subspecialty, is dedicated to diagnosing and treating urinary incontinence and female pelvic floor disorders.

We provide a range of treatments and services, including pelvic floor exercises, vaginal pessaries, and surgical procedures to mend vaginal wall weakness or remove a prolapsed uterus. We also cater to overactive bladder conditions, offering fluid advice, bladder retraining, pelvic floor exercises, and medications.

Other private gynaecology procedures


We also offer consultation, diagnosis and treatment for the following:

Bartholin’s cyst excision and/or marsupialisation

Bartholin’s glands lie close to the entrance to the vagina, producing a fluid which lubricates the vagina. Occasionally the tiny ducts (tubes) that carry the fluid from the glands can become blocked. This can cause a fluid-filled lump which you can feel, but isn’t painful, called a Bartholin’s cyst. A cyst may heal by itself however, if surgery is needed, it would be carried out as an outpatient or as a day case procedure.

If the cyst becomes infected, it could cause a Bartholin’s abscess which would be swollen and tender and can cause a high temperature.

These are quite common, so a quick examination and discussion about your symptoms can diagnose them.


The surgical technique of cutting a narrow opening into a cyst or abscess. The edges of the slit are sewn together to form a continuous surface from the outside to the inside of the cyst or abscess. This leaves the site open so that it can drain freely and will usually heal within two weeks. A small balloon may be left in for a short time to help drain the fluid.

Biopsy of cervix

The cervix is the lower, narrow part of the uterus. A cervical biopsy removes a small amount of tissue from the cervix to undertake testing for abnormal or pre-cancerous conditions. This can cause some mild discomfort and you may experience mild cramping, spotting, and dark discharge for several days.

Cauterisation of lesion of cervix uteri

Cautery is the use of cryotherapy (freezing) or cold coagulation (heat) to destroy abnormal cells or tissue.

During cryotherapy a small probe is held against the affected area of your cervix for about two minutes to freeze the area. With cold coagulation, the probe is used for about 30 seconds while the area is treated with heat. Your Consultant will advise on the treatment that’s best for you.

During your treatment you may feel cramping or a period type pain, however this should go away once your treatment has finished.

After the procedure you may have some discomfort for up to two days, which you can treat with painkillers, or a watery blood-stained discharge for up to four weeks afterwards. If you still have periods your next one should arrive as expected.

You should be able to return to your normal everyday activities straight away.

Excision of lesions of the vagina

If you’re suffering from vaginal lesions or disorders of the vagina including genital warts, pre-cancers or cancers, a vulvar or vaginal excision (removal of tissue by cutting) may be carried out under anaesthetic.

This procedure removes abnormal tissue, but while these growths may contain abnormal cells, they’re not all cancerous.

The tissue removed is then sent to the laboratory to be examined and you should receive results in a few weeks.

Menstrual bleeding disorders

If you suffer with heavy menstrual periods, you may have a bleeding disorder or other medical condition. This might affect your confidence or force you to change your regular work or other activities, making it difficult to enjoy your everyday life.

While there is no cure for menstrual bleeding disorders, you can control the symptoms with medication and enjoy a normal active lifestyle.

We cannot offer treatment or surgery for cancer e.g. Post-Menopausal Bleeding as this would need to be carried out in an NHS Rapid Access 2 Week Wait Clinic for urgent diagnosis and any necessary ongoing treatment.

Operations on uterus and ovaries

A hysterectomy is a common but major surgical procedure to remove your womb (uterus). You may also have to decide whether to have your cervix or ovaries removed at the same time.

These operations are usually carried out if you suffer from one or more of these conditions and other treatment hasn’t worked:

  • Uterine fibroids
  • Heavy or unusual vaginal bleeding
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Endometriosis
  • Adenomyosis

Recovery from these procedures can vary and is often long term. Your health professional and team are here to help and reassure you and to discuss this with you in full, prior to gynaecology surgery.
