Mr Morgan is highly qualified in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology. He is a consultant in the NHS, has his own private practice and runs courses in obstetric emergency and laparoscopic surgical training.
Over and above providing general gynaecological care services, Mr Morgan is proficient in advanced surgical procedures and complex operations. The following is a brief outline of his principal areas of expertise.
Laparoscopic or keyhole (KHS) surgery Using smaller incisions than traditional or open surgery, KHS is less invasive for patients and promotes faster healing and recovery. For these reasons it is often the recommended procedure to deal with a number of gynaecological conditions, including hysterectomy, sterilisation reversal and endometriosis.
Endometrial ablation techniques Dealing with abnormal uterine bleeding or menorrhagia (heavy and/or lengthy periods), these procedures remove the lining of the uterus not the uterus itself. The various techniques include microwave endometrial ablation (MEA) and outpatient Novasure endometrial ablation.
Pelvic floor prolapse treatment (including the use of meshes) Correcting routine and complicated prolapses, such as vault prolapses, and associated pelvic disorders. Prolapses, or falling down of the bladder, affect the front wall, back wall or top of the vagina and can occur following childbirth, injury, weakness or ageing. It is not uncommon to have more than one type of prolapse. A specialist in this area can best identify individual solutions for treatment and/or surgery.
Urinary incontinence Treating incontinence via surgery for permanent support to the uretha and bladder. Incontinence may be embarrassing for sufferers and cause great discomfort but is a common problem that can be resolved. Treatment is determined by examining the symptoms and underlying causes. Options for minimally invasive surgical procedures include insertion of tension-free tapes and culposuspension.
Benign ovarian cysts Removal of benign cysts and teratomas, such as dermoid cysts. Most cysts are non-cancerous. Surgical evaluation is necessary to determine whether a cyst is functional (as part of the menstrual cycle in younger women) or solid or complex. Evaluation and effective removal is through laparoscopy, often as an outpatient procedure.
Patients treated by Mr Morgan for any gynaecological condition can be assured of sensitive, high quality care in consultation, treatment, surgery and after-care.
Expert in keyhole surgery
Keyhole surgery is a medical intervention involving the least possible physical trauma to the patient, particularly surgery performed using an operating laparoscope or other endoscope passed through a tiny incision; it is also known as minimally invasive surgery*. Mr Morgan is an expert in keyhole surgery and he takes considerable care so that his patients benefit from all the advantages of this technique. This includes the assurance of a quick recovery and back to normal life.

Expert in the following gynaecological disorders:
How quickly will I be seen after a referral from my GP?
Depending on when your referral is received, a first consultation can normally be arranged within a matter of days. Consultations are held twice a week, on a Thursday and Friday, at a choice of venues in Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom. Priority appointments are always given to cases requiring urgent treatment.
If I need surgery, where will the operation be?
While some surgical operations may be undertaken as outpatient procedures, some surgery requires admittance to hospital. In either case, surgery is always carried out at Nottingham’s BMI Park Hospital. This is a modern and prestigious health care centre with five theatres and 69 beds, all with en-suite facilities, satellite TV and telephone. You can learn more about The Park’s facilities by logging on to www.bmihealthcare.co.uk
What about after-care following surgery?
If your surgery requires remaining in hospital then, to some extent, your length of stay will be dictated by your recovery time and progress. As an outpatient you will continue to remain in the care of Morgan Gynaecology until you have satisfactorily and fully recovered. There are no compromises with after-care by Morgan Gynaecology and patients are only fully “signed off” by Mr Morgan when he is 100% satisfied.
