MonaLisa Gynaecology comes to Harley Street

A team of leading Consultant Gynaecologists including Tania Adib, Francis Gardner and Pandelis Athanasias have designed a new day-case gynaecology clinic for treating most gynaecological conditions including Vaginal Atrophy using the latest MonaLisa laser. 

NB The MonaLisa treatment method has recently received some health warnings and patients can get further information via this BBC link - therapies pose serious risk.

Laser Treatment for VA and Postpartum Disorders

The latest laser system for treating Vaginal Atrophy, vulvo-vaginal health and postnatal disorders acts by reshaping and regenerating vaginal tissue that may have started to degenerate. The laser restores the healthy functionality of the vagina without any of the usual side effects that are normally associated with more traditional oestrogen treatments.

However, the latest evidence shows that the benefits of the treatment are also helpful for many other disorders, such as:

  • Mild urinary incontinence
  • Vaginal laxity
  • Postnatal disorders due to childbirth injury

In his article for Total Health, Consultant Gynaecologist, Pandelis Athanasias who is part of a leading team of senior Gynaecologists operating from the brand new, high-spec treatment rooms says, "MonaLisa Touch® laser therapy for vaginal atrophy has been shown to be effective. It is well supported by international publications from prestigious health institutes. There is also growing evidence to support the implementation of this laser therapy for conditions such as lichen sclerosus, vaginal or vulval inflammation and urinary disorders."

The gynaecology team go on to stress that, "Mona Lisa must be performed by specialists with advanced expertise in the treatment of vulval and vaginal disorders in order to make the correct diagnosis and personalise the treatment to your needs."
