Mr Ako Nnochiri is a consultant gynaecologist at Spire Hartswood private hospital in Brentwood and the Spire Roding Hospital, Essex. He offers private gynaecology consultations and treatment in a caring and professional manner to all his patients. His approach to patient care is based on the firm belief that patient participation is a key ingredient, if not the most important element, in achieving a favourable clinical outcome.
After qualifying as a doctor in Nigeria in 1995, Ako Nnochiri undertook his postgraduate training in obstetrics and gynaecology in the UK. He found this to be a thoroughly rewarding experience that took him to the Highlands of Scotland, through the Black Country in the West Midlands and back to London, where he spent two years at the Homerton Hospital, specialising in minimal access surgery and urogynaecology. In this time he worked with some really amazing people, acquiring skills and experience along the way.
Mr Nnochiri seeks to be an excellent communicator and a good listener. He is a highly skilled laparoscopic (keyhole) surgeon and urogynaecologist and offers the following treatments and procedures:
Mr Nnochiri uses the standard tension-free sling approach (TVT) to treat patients with stress urinary incontinence, who leak urine on coughing and sneezing. He also uses minimally invasive bladder neck injections in women who do not want surgery or who are not suitable for the sling operation.
Ako Nnochiri uses keyhole surgery to perform hysterectomy and to treat a variety of conditions including endometriosis, uterine fibroids, chronic pelvic pain, ovarian cysts, and ectopic pregnancy. He can also preform the above procedures by the traditional open method.
Mr Nnochiri uses keyhole surgery to treat prolapse of the womb without the need for a hysterectomy in appropriate cases. He specialises in the treatment of women whose prolapse may have re-occurred after a previous prolapse operation.
Refashioning of childbirth perineal trauma scars is an area of major interest for Mr Nnochiri.
Ako Nnochiri performs hysteroscopy (examination of the uterus) without the need for general anaesthesia.
