Dr Cameron Martin Consultant Gynaecologist


After being diagnosed with endometriosis Pauline* had a complete laparoscopic hysterectomy which was carried out by Dr Cameron Martin.

I am a 45-year-old woman who recently had a complete laparoscopic hysterectomy performed by Dr Cameron Martin. I had very heavy bleeding constantly for approximately six months, due to endometriosis, which I wasn’t aware of.  I had had a D&C through the NHS and thought my problems were over, but how wrong was I! I did some research on the internet, where I came across Dr Cameron Martin, who has vast knowledge and experience of this kind of problem and who came highly recommended. I had had enough and asked my doctor to refer me to Dr Cameron Martin. It became evident after speaking with Dr Martin, that a complete hysterectomy would be the only viable option due to endometriosis.  As this news was so devastating to me, Dr Martin explained the procedure in great detail and as I didn’t want to have an abdominal hysterectomy, he assured me that he would be able to do a laparoscopic hysterectomy.  A week later I had surgery.

When I woke up, I couldn’t believe how good I felt. I didn’t feel any noticeable pain or discomfort at all. After two days I went home with painkillers, which I didn’t need to take.  After a few days after surgery I developed a very bad UTI and after taking two courses of antibiotics from my GP, which didn’t work, I contacted Dr Martin to ask for his help.  He called me and advised that it would be best if I saw him the following day, but as he was in surgery, he would not be able to confirm a time until later in the evening.  He contacted me that evening once he had finished surgery to confirm a time for the following day.  Dr Martin had taken time out of his busy schedule to see me, which I was grateful for, as I was in a lot of pain!  He put me on two lots of stronger antibiotics, which after one week certainly worked!!! 

My experience has been nothing but positive from the first contact with Dr Martin to my post-op follow up visits.  Dr Martin is brilliant at what he does and is very knowledgeable and experienced. I felt very comfortable discussing matters with him and he made me feel at ease when he felt I was nervous.  I have recommend Dr Martin to my friend and would certainly encourage other ladies who are suffering to see Dr Martin, as he is the best man for job!Now, six months after the procedure, I’m back to normal.  I’m getting back to the gym and painting and decorating.  It’s great to get my life back and it’s all thanks to Dr Cameron Martin, whom I can’t thank enough!!
