Endometriosis Clinic referrals

The Women's Centre at the John Radcliffe Hospital is a national referral centre for the management of endometriosis, and in particular for severe cases.

In collaboration with the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (University of Oxford) there are consultant gynaecologists leading in the laparoscopic ('keyhole') surgical and non-surgical management of pelvic pain and endometriosis.

This service is led by Consultant Mr Christian Becker along with Prof Stephen Kennedy, Mr Kirana Arambage and their team.

The clinic runs weekly on a Monday afternoon, on Level 1 of the John Radcliffe Hospital Women's Centre.

Any woman with symptoms of endometriosis can be seen at the Oxford Endometriosis Clinic. Common symptoms include very painful periods (especially if the pain starts before the vaginal bleeding of monthly menstruation), pelvic pain during sexual intercourse, cyclical pains elsewhere or, rarely, cyclical bleeding elsewhere such as from the rectum or the lungs.

Imaging such as pelvic ultrasound, MRI scanning or laparoscopy may be used to help diagnosis.

Oxfordshire GPs can refer women via e-Referral.
