Some patients with chronic pain can benefit from exercise. Physiotherapy contributes towards the non-pharmacological approach to pain management.
The right choice of treatment for your pancreatic cancer depends on the size and stage of the tumour, whether the cancer has spread, and your age and general health. The London Clinic offers a range of tests to detect pancreatic cancer in an efficient and comfortable environment.
Severe acute pancreatitis is usually treated in our intensive care unit so that complications such as kidney failure can be monitored and treated promptly.
Treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy are used first to treat the underlying cancer. The second line of treatment is to try to modify the immune response that is causing the paraneoplastic syndrome: Plasmapheresis involves removing and replacing the plasma, which contains the paraneoplastic antibodies, from the blood of the person experiencing symptoms. Any effect is usually temporary as it does not stop the antibodies being produced, high dose intravenous immunoglobulin therapy can block the effects of the paraneoplastic antibodies and immunosuppressant drugs such as steroids can help reduce symptoms in many paraneoplastic syndromes.
At The London Clinic, our treatment options of drugs or deep brain stimulation are supported by a range of additional therapies.
Treatment for PID usually includes oral antibiotics. In cases of severe infection, hospitalisation may be required to administer intravenous antibiotics. Occasionally, surgery is necessary to drain pus or infected fluid around the lining of the fallopian tube or pelvic region.
Cancerous neuroendocrine tumours contain specific receptors. Peptides, attached to radioactive isotopes, target these. This allows accurate targeting of the cancer and less damage to healthy cells.
Periacetabular osteotomy is a technique whereby the acetabulum (hip socket) is re-positioned to address certain abnormalities of the hip.
A peripheral lower limb nerve block can be used for most people, usually giving a safe and effective form of pain relief both during and after the operation.
A peripheral upper limb nerve block can be used for most people, usually giving a safe and effective form of pain relief both during and after the operation.
Analysis of a blood sample will show abnormally large, fragile red blood cells (megaloblasts) and a low haemoglobin count, but these are characteristic of all forms of anaemia. Usually, if atrophic gastritis (a thinning of the stomach lining) is identified at endoscopy, this is a very positive sign that pernicious anaemia has developed.
The PET (positron emission tomography) identifies physiological changes in your body. The CT scan shows the bodies’ structure.
Photodynamic therapy, also known as PDT, is a technique for treating early localised skin cancers and sun-damaged skin which may one day turn cancerous (pre- cancers).
Pinnaplasty, also known as otoplasty is an operation to improve the appearance of your ears. The operation should be performed only if the aim is to improve your self-confidence and to make you more comfortable with your appearance. You should consider the options carefully and have realistic expectations about the results.
If you are suspected of having a pituitary tumour, diagnostic imaging techniques can confirm this and establish the exact size and location of the tumour.
Portal hypertension is treated by trying to reduce portal vein blood pressure so that the formation of new varices and the build-up of ascites are prevented as far as possible.
A posterior repair is a major operation usually recommended after simpler treatments have failed. Your bowel should be better supported and you should no longer have a bulge in your vagina.
Several surgical alternatives are available, and the type of surgery is chosen by the consultant gynaecologist based on each individual patient’s circumstances. All-inclusive treatment packages for women's health are available.
The London Clinic is one of the first independent hospitals in the UK to offer prostate artery embolisation as a routine procedure, offering a safe alternative to surgery.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer affecting men. One in eight men will develop prostate cancer during their lifetime and 47,000 men are diagnosed with the disease in the UK every year.
The first stage of psoriasis treatment is usually topical creams, ointments or shampoos. These are used to treat the symptoms of psoriasis in several different ways, including: topical corticosteroids are applied to reduce inflammation and swelling around the psoriasis sites. Vitamin D either in natural or equivalent forms, such as calcipotriol or tacalcitol, are used to slow the rate of skin cell production and reduce infection. Dithranol can slow skin cell production, but must be used under medical supervision.
Tazarotene is used to slow down skin cell production.
