Spire Parkway Patient Journey on Embarrassing Bodies

04 June 2014

Miss Shirin Irani, consultant gynaecologist at Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull, featured on Channel 4’s flagship health programme, 'Embarrassing Bodies: Live from the Clinic' this month, where she conducted a hysteroscopy on a young female patient who has suffered from extremely heavy and irregular periods.

As its name suggests, 'Embarrassing Bodies' is a programme centred on helping patients with health issues that they find embarrassing or that they have found no help with treating previously.

Sophie, 28, from Newcastle called in live to the programme in May and spoke to Miss Irani who had joined Dr Dawn Harper on the 'Live from the Clinic' sofa. Following Miss Irani’s advice, Sophie visited her at Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull, where she performed a hysteroscopy.

Miss Irani said: "Poor Sophie, suffered with very heavy and irregular bleeding for months. She had stopped going out with friends and taking her kids out to play all because she had been caught out with flooding on a couple of occasions which was very embarrassing.

"Sophie had a scan which did not pick up any major abnormalities. I therefore recommended a hysteroscopy. This is a quick and simple procedure to look for abnormalities inside the womb, take a biopsy and use the opportunity to insert a medicated system to help with bleeding and contraception in young women."
