Conditions treated

Mr Hall practices both obstetrics and gynaecology and is an advanced practitioner of hysteroscopic and laparoscopic surgery (RCOG certified), and a highly skilled vaginal surgeon. 

He uses these skills to help patients obtain the treatment outcomes they wish.  This is especially important in for women with pelvic pain, period problems and prolapse as there are a range of treatment available.

His main areas of interest in gynaecology are women with period problems (fibroids/endometriosis) and women with pelvic pain (ovarian cysts/endometriosis) and abnormal smears.

Areas of interest in obstetrics include early pregnancy problem (abnormal fetal scans/miscarriage), screening for Down’s syndrome (nuchal scans/amniocentesis) and twin pregnancy and other high risk pregnancy’s.
