We can treat wet AMD very effectively now, providing that we catch it at an early stage. Patients who develop wet AMD always do so after showing signs of dry AMD and regular monitoring to detect progression is essential. Vision can then be preserved in many cases using intravitreal injections of Lucentis® or Avastin®. Treatments need to be repeated every month for maximum benefit, but can be continued over several years as necessary.
Our experts at The London Clinic can provide solutions that are tailored to your individual needs, including the latest medications and physical solutions such as implants and mechanical devices. We are also able to offer professional therapy and counselling, either individually or with your partner, to help you overcome any psychological or emotional issues.
All of the problems described can occur in men following prostate cancer surgery. They are more common in men who have a non-robotic radical prostatectomy, but can still occur temporarily after robotic surgery to remove the prostate gland. The problem may resolve within a few days, but if it doesn’t, we start with non-invasive treatment techniques such as: lifestyle advice, medical treatment, Botox injections and surgical options.
Mammography is a X-ray of your breasts used to help detect breast cancer. It produces several X-ray images of your breast tissue that can help to detect even small tumours, even if you or your doctor cannot feel them.
The London Clinic provides a full breast care service for women who are worried about their breast health or who have developed breast cancer.
Mastectomy is a procedure to remove a breast and can be the most appropriate treatment for some women with breast cancer.
A mastopexy, or breast lift, is a more extensive surgical procedure than breast augmentation.
Standard treatment of Ménière’s disease involves dealing with each of the symptoms these include: Tinnitus: this may be relieved by sound therapy, relaxation techniques and cognitive behaviour therapy. Overall, these do not eliminate the tinnitus but provide coping strategies to allow you to live with it more easily.
Vertigo: medication such as prochlorperazine and antihistamines are used during an attack. Tablets that dissolve under the tongue are available for people whose attacks are accompanied by severe nausea or vomiting. These do have side effects such as prochlorperazine often causes tremors and abnormal facial and bodily movements.
Hearing loss: hearing aids can be used to help you hear better, but these have to be chosen carefully as you may be more sensitive to some types of sound compared to others.
If meningitis is suspected, hospital admission is arranged quickly so that intravenous antibiotic treatment can start immediately and without waiting for a firm diagnosis. Broad spectrum antibiotics are used to target different types of bacteria, and a spinal tap is also done to culture the bacteria causing the infection so that antibiotic treatment can be more individually tailored to the infection. Viral meningitis cannot be treated using antibiotics. Because it is less severe than bacterial meningitis, viral meningitis can be treated by anti-viral drugs, corticosteroids to reduce inflammation, or just with pain killers to reduce the worst of the aches and pains.
Since the menopause is caused by declining levels of the hormone oestrogen, the main medical treatment is to reverse this decline through hormone replacement therapy or HRT.
Your gynaecologist may prescribe medication for the treatment of your painful periods or dysmenorrhoea such as non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDs), such as mefenamic acid, ibuprofen or naproxen.
The procedure involves making a small incision in the groin under local anaesthetic, and passing a flexible catheter (tube) into the hepatic artery via the femoral and coeliac arteries. The treatment is delivered by experienced interventional radiologists in The London Clinic’s state-of-the-art Hybrid theatre.
Acute migraine was treated with ergotamines, which had terrible side effects and dangers. The modern group of triptan drugs have now revolutionised acute migraine treatment. These are effective and safe, and have relatively few adverse effects. Although more effective preventive treatments are now available, these need to be taken over a long period, sometimes indefinitely, to keep the migraines under control. Patients can have problems tolerating some drugs so we start at the lowest dose possible and increase slowly over time until we can see a reduction in migraine frequency. Occipital nerve blocks can help patients with migraine and also those who experience cluster headaches. The treatment involves the injection of a steroid and a local anaesthetic into the two occipital nerves which run up to the back of the head from the neck.
The London Clinic has a state of the art imaging department providing our patients and referring doctors with a comprehensive range of investigations to cater for our patients’ individual needs. Our consultants have access to some of the most advanced technology available.
