Welcome to CEMIG

CEMIG is delighted to report that as of late 2023, robotic surgery utilising the da Vinci X platform for excision of endometriosis and other complex gynaecological procedures is now being routinely performed on the St Peters site. Robotics is another tool available to the surgical team for the treatment of complex disease.

About the CEMIG Service

Based at Ashford and St Peter’s NHS Trust we are one of only 80 endometriosis centres in the UK that have been accredited by the British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (BSGE).

CEMIG (Centre for Endometriosis and minimally invasive Gynaecology) is recognised as a Centre of Excellence for the treatment of women with endometriosis. In 2023, we were the 3rd busiest centre in the UK.

We also offer Neuropelveological procedures which can include exploring the nerves of the pelvis (neurolysis) or removing endometriosis from the surface of pelvic nerves and may include cutting part of a large nerve that is involved with endometriosis. Mr Minas and Mr Adamczyk have had formal training at the International School of Neuropelveology under the mentorship of Professor Marc Possover, the pioneer of Neuropelveology.

CEMIG has a dynamic multidisciplinary team that have the experience and knowledge to provide high quality, evidenced based care.

The CEMIG team understand the difficulties you face living with endometriosis and chronic pelvic pain, physically and emotionally, and you will be fully involved with all decisions regarding your treatment.

We treat women with all grades of endometriosis, from mild disease to the more severe form involving the bladder and bowel.

Our surgeons are experts in laparoscopic surgery and diagnostics. We also offer a dedicated Pelvic Pain Service and you will have the support of an endometriosis and pelvic pain specialist nurse throughout your care and in the community.

At the awards
 

ASPH’s Centre for Endometriosis and Minimally invasive Gynaecology team was a prominent presence at the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy’s (BSGE) Annual Scientific Meeting in April 2022.

Consultants Mr Matthew Erritty, Mr Vasileios Minas and Mr Shaheen Khazali as well as Specialist Registrar Mr Michal Adamzcyk all facilitated and presented lectures during the well attended 4 day conference.

Mr Adamzcyk submitted a surgery video of one of our complex surgeries winning the top award which is a golden laparoscope!

This was the 4th time CEMIG has bagged this prestigious highly coveted award.

Mr Shaheen Khazali won it 3x previously!

It was definitely a proud moment for the team!
