Spire Elland Hospital has success with patient after endometriosis surgery

January 2011

"This is the first time in 20 years that I am free from my dependence on clinical drugs. I feel amazing and can't wait to enjoy family life to the full."

This is a quote from 36 year old Clair Victory who is pleased be able to share her story with us. Clair was diagnosed with severe endometriosis at the age of 15 and was ultimately advised to have a baby early. It was in 2004 she gave birth to a health baby girl after a course of IVF and a very painful pregnancy. After the birth she continued to have severe bleeding and was advised to have a hysterectomy, which she declined.

After performing lots of research she finally found Mr Ashwini Trehan, at Spire Elland Hospital, who offered a solution, to the constant pain of endometriosis,which she was willing to try.  Within a month of surgery, Clair felt like a different person. After 20 years of pain and suffering, she felt in control of her life again. Within just a few months of surgery, she fell pregnant naturally.

Baby James was born without surgical intervention on September 7, 2010, weighing 6lb 7oz and is a complete joy to Clair and Daryll and his little sister.

About Endometriosis

Endometriosis affects about two million women in the UK and is a condition where cells that usually line the womb are found elsewhere in the body. Some women may not suffer symptoms, but for others, the pain can be crippling.

The Spire Elland is one of only a handful of private practices in the country recognised as an Endometriosis Centre.

Excision treatment can help cure or improve pain and at the same time avoid the need for hysterectomy and/or removal of ovaries and improve the chances for those who are trying for pregnancy.
