There are many different reasons why a woman would book an appointment to see a gynaecologist like our team at MAS Gynaecology.
Our consultant gynaecologist Mohammad Masood has more than 25 years of experience in the field of gynaecology and he ensures all the women who visit his practice come into a calming, relaxed environment. This helps to allay any initial nerves that many women suffer when seeing a gynaecologist, particularly if it is the first time they have done so.
Mr Masood is a specialist minimal access surgeon. Through the keyhole procedures he performs, you are only left with very small, minimal scarring and the delicacy that his expertise provides allows for a quick recovery from surgeries which normally have lengthy recovery times such Hysterectomies and Myomectomies.
What is a gynaecologist?
Gynaecology covers numerous areas related to the well-being of the female reproductive organs. A gynaecologist, therefore, is a surgeon or doctor who specialises in that field.
Problems with a women’s health or well-being can be a sensitive issue which requires emotional understanding and complete discretion, something which is an integral part of the services offered at MAS. As well as the range of treatments that we provide, our professional team include advice and counselling as part of their services.
Reasons to see a gynaecologist
Why a woman would choose to visit our General Gynaecology Clinic will vary from woman to woman, although usually it is because of one of the following reasons:
• You are suffering from period pain
• You have been having particularly heavy periods, periods which have been longer than a week or are generally infrequent
• You have missed your period
• You are suffering from vaginal itching, swelling or unusual discharge or odours
• You have problems related to urinating such as urinary incontinence
• You have suffered a pelvic injury
• You think you could have sexually transmitted infection
Some women choose to see a special gynaecologist for common consultations, after all through regular visits seeing a gynaecologist will massively contribute to being the healthiest possible woman you can be. Discussions regarding contraception options are also available at MAS, while you can book in for a smear test or for miscarriage counselling and treatments.

MAS Gynaecology Services
Here at MAS as well as the treatments and consultations offered at our General Gynaecology Clinic, we also offer a number of specialist gynaecology treatments. Each service is provided with absolute professionalism and sensitivity. Below see a list of our gynaecology services:
Endometriosis is where tissue normally found in the womb grows in other areas of the body which is normally painful and very uncomfortable to experience. Our treatments can provide pain relief, slow the production of the endometriosis tissue and they can also improve your fertility.
We offer a range of treatments to combat fibroids as each case of fibroids is unlike another. A fibroid is a non-cancerous polyp that grows in different areas of womb. They can lead to back or abdominal pain and also lead to heavy or painful periods.
Non-surgical measures and the administration of medication are commonly used to treat heavy periods when you book an appointment with a gynaecologist. Heavy periods are when a woman bleeds a lot more than they usually do during their period.
HRT, or Hormone Replacement Therapy as it is also known, is used to combat symptoms of the menopause. This is usually administered through creams, tablets, gels and skin patches though some women opt for an implant which will gradually release the HRT into their body over time.
At MAS as a specialist gynaecologist, we provide both Hysterectomies and Myomectomies. A Hysterectomy removes the womb and is carried out to treat fibroids, heavy periods or cancer, while a Myomectomy is a procedure where uterine growths are removed to improve conception chances and to provide pain and discomfort relief.
Our treatments can alleviate period pain which may or may not be caused by a medical condition such as endometriosis, fibroids or adenomyosis. when the womb lining breaks through to the womb wall.
This is when you leak or pass urine without intending to. Something that affects many, many people, our urinary incontinence treatments are considered revolutionary when it comes to helping people who suffer from the condition.
Women may also visit a gynaecologist to receive cosmetic gynaecology. Mr Masood specialises in a variety of cosmetic procedures such as vaginoplasty, labiaplasty and clitoral hoodectomy.
