Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Gurminder Matharu at Spire include:
I also provide treatments for the overactive bladder (incl. Botulinum toxin), recurrent cystitis/urine infections, bladder pain (interstitial cystitis). I perform simple & complex surgery to treat prolapse of the womb/vagina.
I have been a consultant gynaecologist for 14 years and I am a specialist in urogynaecology. In addition to providing a general gynaecology service, I look after women with bladder and pelvic floor problems. I provide my patients with a detailed and thorough assessment, with treatment decisions being made in partnership with patients. My approach is to tailor treatment to the individual rather than a one size fits all. This is particularly important when it comes to surgery, when having a number of techniques at one's disposal gives women choice. I also have over 20 years' experience managing menstrual disorders, ovarian cysts and abnormal vaginal bleeding. I receive very positive feedback from patients and my colleagues.
I specialise in the management of bladder and pelvic floor problems, such as urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, bladder pain, cystitis, recurrent infections and prolapse. I have accumulated considerable experience in the simple and complex prolapse surgery eg. repeat surgery. I work and liaise with other health professionals (eg. phyiotherapists, colorectal surgeons) when necessary to ensure my patients receive a high standard of care.
In my NHS and private practice I have performed: Over 1400 procedures to treat urinary incontinence, Over 900 vaginal repairs, 275 vaginal hysterectomies + 100 abdominal hysterectomies, 94 abdominal procedures to treat uterovaginal prolapse, Over 1200 urodynamic investigations, Over 50 endometrial ablations, Over 200 laparoscopies, Over 1700 cystoscopies, Over 300 hysteroscopies.
I am clinical lead for urogynaecology in Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust and I am the Deputy Chair of the Spire Parkway Hospital Medical Advisory Committee.
In addition, I am also vice-chair of the Information Committee of the British Society of Urogynaecology.
I record outcomes of all continence procedures and prolapse operations so that I can audit my results, including complications. Audit allows me to make improvements where possible and also provides me with information which I can share with patients so they know what results to expect following a particular treatment. I submit my outcomes from continence and prolapse surgery to the British Society of Urogynaecology Database.
