Gynaecology is the medical practice dealing with the health of the female reproductive system.

Gynaecological treatment covers a number of areas including cancer, medical management of a chronic condition, surgery or post-natal care.

Most women will need gynaecological care once in their lives, the investigations and treatments carried out are all common medical procedures.

The main procedures that can lead to gynaecological negligence as a direct consequence of a practitioner’s incompetence are: removal of an ovarian cyst, pelvic organ prolapse, endometrial ablation, hysterectomy (full or part uterus removal), salpingectomy (fallopian tube removal), myomectomy (uterine fibroid removal), oophorectomy (ovarian removal), colposcopy, abortions, sterilisations and dilation and curettage.

Gynaecological procedures carry risks including but not limited to incontinence following surgery, perforation of the uterus during the insertion of a contraceptive coil, failed sterilisation, damage during laproscopic investigations or surgery, injury to bladder, bowel or uterus during hysterectomy, unnecessary hysterectomy following a caesarean section, defective consent to medical procedures and infection resulting in loss of childbearing potential and damage to womb or abdominal wall.

If you feel strongly that you have suffered a gynaecological injury as a result of treatment you have received or as a result of a failure by a doctor to diagnose a condition then you may have a potential negligence claim.

Our dedicated team of female solicitors will provide expert guidance to helping you succeed and win you the compensation that you deserve.
