Sacral nerve stimulation is a type of neuromodulation therapy that uses small electrical impulses to alter the activity of certain nerves (sacral nerves) that control the functions of the bladder and bowel motion. The electrical impulses are sent out from an electrical device, similar to a pacemaker, through tiny electrical wires (electrodes) that are placed near these nerves.
Sedatives are not really anaesthetics but they are often used with local anaesthetics or epidurals to help you feel calm and relaxed during an operation in which you are awake.
The London Clinic is one of the few private hospitals that offers Selective Internal Radiotherapy (SIRT), a pioneering treatment used to accurately target primary liver cancer or cancer that has spread to the liver from other parts of the body such as bowel cancer.
Septorhinoplasty is surgery to reshape and resize the nose and correct a deviated nasal septum. Septorhinoplasty is an operation that changes the nose's appearance and straightens the septum to restore its healthy function. We offer a functional septorhinoplasty by world-leading cosmetic surgeons and ENT consultants, and a comfortable, stress-free environment in which to recover.
ESWT is a non invasive, non surgical, drug free procedure for the treatment of chronic (long term) tendon pain. A shockwave is an acoustic energy wave. It is created outside of the body (extracorporeal) by compressed air, which the physiotherapist then directs onto the effected tissue via a hand held device.
The shoulder is one of the most mobile joints in the body, but arthritis and injury can make it painful and stiff. If conservative measures like physiotherapy and pain relief haven’t resolved your shoulder symptoms, our world-leading orthopaedic surgeons can operate to replace the joint, relieve pain and restore movement and function.
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles that maintain the shoulder's stability and help the joint move. Injuries and tears to the rotator cuff can be painful and disabling, making the shoulder weak and immobile. The London Clinic provides rotator cuff surgery by some of the world's best orthopaedic surgeons, and a comfortable, stress-free environment in which to recover. An All-Inclusive Package for this procedure is available from £4,985.
A sleeve gastrectomy reduces the size of the stomach by permanently removing about 75 % of its volume.
Small bowel enteroscopy is a minimally invasive examination of the small intestine. The London Clinic’s world-leading gastroenterologists perform the procedure to identify bleeding, take biopsies, remove polyps and diagnose disease.
Until recently there was no objective test to help establish the diagnosis of the small fibre neuropathy. This has significantly changed with the introduction of the measurement of intraepidermal nerve fibre density.
The London Clinic offers a range of surgery treatments to reduce or stop snoring, performed by world-leading ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeons
SpaceOAR® is an innovative protective agent that can reduce the side-effects of radiotherapy for prostate cancer. The London Clinic is the first hospital in the UK to offer patients this treatment, which can prevent the development of distressing bowel symptoms.
Spinal cord stimulation is a type of neuromodulation that effectively treats neuropathic (nerve-related) pain. It involves placing a tiny electrical wire (electrode) near the spinal cord; this is connected to an electrical device (pulse generator) that sends out small electrical impulses to reduce the feeling of pain.
Some causes of back pain can be treated by injecting medications into different parts of the spine; these are known as spinal injections. They can help to relieve pain, inflammation and stiffness, and restore movement.
Spinal surgery is a surgical procedure performed anywhere along the spine, from the top of the neck to the base of the lower back. It is carried out by a neurosurgeon with the aim of treating a problem in the neck, upper back or lower back.
Spirometry is a way of measuring how well your lungs are functioning. It can be used to diagnose lung disorders, or to test the effectiveness of medication you may be taking for lung-related problems such as asthma.
Physiotherapy for the management of sports related injuries aims to treat these injuries and rehabilitate to help prevent re-occurrence.
This minimally invasive procedure helps diagnose and treat conditions that results in the narrowing or obstruction of the bile duct. An all-inclusive package for this treatment is available from £6,995.
The first treatment to correct a squint is to prescribe glasses, if appropriate, as this can often straighten the eye. The next step is to make the eye that is misaligned work harder to improve its capacity for vision. If surgery is required, it repositions the muscles around the eyeball. This is a minor operation usually done under a general anaesthetic.
Stem cell therapy uses the cells’ unique ability to regenerate and repair tissues. Stem cells have been used effectively for many years in the treatment for conditions such as cancers of the blood and marrow, thalassaemia and sickle cell disease.
Decisions are then made on the exact course of drug treatment that is likely to be most effective in each particular case. Some people just need medication to control pain, vomiting, or seizures. Anti-hypertensive drugs such as nicardipine can reduce high blood pressure, so reducing the risk of further bleeds.
The surgical removal of benign lesions is done for comfort or practical reasons, such as when the lesion causes snags on clothing or affects your appearance. The surgical removal of moles is often recommended as a precautionary measure to avoid the risk of the mole turning cancerous at a later stage.
Neurosurgeons at The London Clinic are able to perform a ventriculostomy using conventional brain surgery or using endoscopic techniques. A ventriculostomy to relieve hydrocephalus can also be done with the addition of a stent, a small catheter that is used to keep the drainage hole open: An external ventricular drain is a temporary catheter that is later removed. A ventricular peritoneal shunt carries excess fluid into the peritoneum, the abdominal cavity. A ventriculoatrial shunt takes the fluid directly into one of the upper chambers of the heart.
