Some of the principal treatments carried out by Ms Desiree Kolomainen at Spire include:
Gynaecology and/or Obstetrics; gynaecological cancer surgery, Oophorectomy (removal of ovary) unilateral or bilateral, menopause, sexual health testing and colposcopy treatment.
Oncology; Gynaecological cancer
I graduated from King's College School of Medicine, London, and have dual accreditation from the RCOG as an obstetrician and gynaecologist, and as a specialist in gynaecological oncology. Following completion of training in obstetrics and gynaecology in the North East Thames, I undertook a fellowship at St George's Hospital, and then completed subspecialty training in gynaecological cancer at The Royal Marsden Hospital.
I have certification from the RCOG in colposcopy, laparoscopy, and gynaecological ultrasound. Within my NHS post I specialise in the early detection and treatment of gynaecological cancer: endometrial, cervical, ovarian, vulval and vaginal. I have expertise in the management of early stage to advanced stage cancer, and am qualified to perform both open and laparoscopic surgery. I also perform colposcopy in patients with abnormal smears, and offer treatment under local anaesthesia where appropriate.
I have presented at both national and international meetings on early stage ovarian cancer; the surgical management of bowel obstruction in ovarian cancer; and on surgery for recurrent ovarian cancer. I continue to teach at the Institute of Cancer Research.
I welcome appropriate patients wishing to refer and pay for treatment themselves without the need for a GP's letter of referral.
