Experienced care at all stages

Women experience many changes throughout their life and Dr Kelvin Larwood is here to provide experienced care at all stages. From teenagers with pelvic pain to women with period problems, prolapse, incontinence, ovarian masses and menopausal problems Dr Kelvin Larwood is easy to talk to and combines a kind caring approach to your care with expert surgical skills when needed. Whenever possible surgery is performed laparoscopically ‘key hole’ which is minimally invasive and aids recovery.

You can be confident that I will listen to you, be respectful and understanding of your situation. I believe in providing women with accurate information, outlining the possible treatment options available enabling you to make informed and good decisions about your care. Where possible and effective non-surgical options should be considered first but there are circumstances where surgery may be the best option.

Your questions answered

What happens at a gynaecological consultation?

Initially I plan to listen to you, I would have already read the referral from your GP but I am interested in what you are experiencing and want to hear this from your perspective. I will ask you a number of questions in order to understand your situation and know about your medical and surgical history.

Depending on your situation I may need to do a physical and pelvic examination. I don’t always do a pelvic examination but if needed, I will be able to explain why I would like to do this examination, what information I will get from the examination and how it will guide your treatment and recommendations for care. Examinations should not be painful and shouldn’t take more than a few minutes.
