  • Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital reinforces its status as a UK and European training hub for the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis
  • Five consultant gynaecologists from Denmark receive endometriosis surgery training from Professor Mohamed Mabrouk at the hospital

Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital welcomed a team of Consultant Gynaecologists from the University of Southern Denmark to the hospital’s Cambridge EndoCare Endometriosis Centre on 8 December to observe endometriosis surgery and learn more about the diagnosis of the condition. Led by the centre’s Director Professor Mohamed Mabrouk, Consultant Gynaecologist and Endometriosis Surgeon, the visiting specialists met and trained with the hospital’s dedicated multidisciplinary team over the course of two days.

Renowned for its exceptional care and innovative treatment approaches, the centre has once again demonstrated its role as a hub for endometriosis surgery training in Europe. Under the guidance of Professor Mabrouk, who also spearheads a pan-European project for the training of European consultants in the surgical management of endometriosis, the centre has been instrumental in elevating the standards of care and surgical expertise across the continent.

Endometriosis affects 1.5 million women in the UK, it can be a chronic and very painful condition which is difficult to diagnose because of variations in symptoms. Some patients require surgery and if the condition is advanced, surgery can be complex requiring a team approach involving many surgeons with the necessary expertise in this particular type of procedure and condition.

The centre’s ongoing commitment to education and collaboration shows the dedication of the team to improve the lives of those affected by endometriosis and advancing the field of gynaecological surgery.

Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital is also looking forward to welcoming consultants from Scotland in 2024, reinforcing its status as a leading training destination for endometriosis surgeons in the UK and Europe.

Professor Mabrouk said: “The Endometriosis Centre’s reputation for excellence has been further cemented by the visit of five consultant delegates from one of Denmark's most prestigious institutes.

"They were impressed by the centre's comprehensive approach, encompassing multidisciplinary teams, meticulous pre-operative diagnosis, and efficient counselling services. The Centre's commitment to excellence in endometriosis management and surgical training has been a source of inspiration for many healthcare professionals.”

In 2020 the specialist team at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital celebrated becoming the first private endometriosis centre in East Anglia accredited by the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy (BSGE).
