Gynaecology

Women’s health problems are often ignored, underestimated or undertreated and are the source of great stress, inconvenience and embarrassment.

Often, a careful and detailed assessment, thorough but gentle examination and the use of relevant investigations will identify the problem. From there, with up to date information and resources, Dr Ward will carefully discuss the options whether they be simple, natural, medical or surgical.
