    The Harley Street Clinic Endometriosis Centre Philosophy:

    Individualised treatment strategy and involvement of patients in decision making

    Multidisciplinary team approach and constant support of our patients.

    Excisional nerve sparing endoscopic / robotic endometriosis surgery of any complexity

    Center's multidisciplinary team offers top surgical expertise in excisional nerve sparing, radical and fertility preserving treatment options of severe infiltrating endometriosis. Our aim is to avoid multiple surgical operations for deep endometriosis and clear the disease in a single surgical procedure. We use principles of conservative radicality and nerve sparing and our target is to remove the disease and cause minimal collateral damage to other pelvic organs, nerves and blood vessels.

    Ongoing Care and Patient Support

    Harley Street Clinic Endometriosis Centre is a coordinated multidisciplinary network. It offers comprehensive and personalised approach to endometriosis from all aspects.

    This is the the clinic where gynaecology endometriosis surgeons, specialist endometriosis nurse, colorectal (bowel) surgeon, urologist, anaesthetists, chronic pain specialists, gastroenterologists, and consultant radiologist, specialising in endometriosis work together and always discuss the treatment of patients with severe endometriosis on multidisciplinary team meetings (MDM)

    Apart from the core medical specialists our patients will have access to clinical psychologist, complimentary medicine specialist and psycho-sexual councillor. We work in close partnership with fertility team in Lister Hospital for those patients who have difficulty getting pregnant with endometriosis. We support our patients in all aspects of endometriosis care before, during and after surgery. Our aim is to improve reproductive health of our patients and enhance their quality of life.

    Bowel Endometriosis

    For suspected deep infiltrating endometriosis of the bowel clinic offers offer extensive pre-operative assessment including special MRI scan to asssess the extent of the disease before surgery. If deep infiltrating endometriosis of the bowel is confirmed by the MRI we offer surgical treatment options which may include bowel shaving, disciod stapler bowel resection or, for large or multiple bowel endometriosis nodules - economical segmental bowel resection. All these procedures are performed laparoscopically. Our surgical audit data shows excellent results in improving patients quality of life, pain levels and sexual function. Our serious complications rate for bowel endometriosis surgery is very low and we take enourmous efforts to maintain patients well being before, during and after surgery.

    Urinary Tract Endometriosis

    Our multidisciplinary team has vast experience in surgical treatment of deep infiltrating endometriosis of the bladder and ureters. If bladder endometriosis is confirmed by the MRI we offer excisional treatment which may include full thicknes bladder nodules excision, bladder reconstruction and ureteric re-implantation. All these procedures are performed laparoscopically. After surgery we offer bladder physiotherapy support to enhance post surgical recovery and speed up patients return to normality.

    I feel so fortunate to have found Mr Tsepov. I was given plenty of time to explain my symptoms and Mr Tsepov was very thorough in his history taking and so I felt confident we had covered everything that could be relevant. I was treated with kindness and compassion through out and feel like Mr Tsepov's recommendations for treatment were well explained and took into consideration my individual situation. I feel in very good hands and have already recommended Mr Tsepov to other friends with diagnoses of endometriosis.

    I was diagnosed with endometriosis 20 years ago and have been treated by many good doctors, but it wasn’t until I met Mr Tsepov and his colleagues at The Harley Street Clinic Endometriosis Centre 4 years ago that I received the specialist care that I now realise I needed all along. Before becoming Mr Tsepov’s patient when I had my period I would take maximum doses of strong prescription painkillers and still not always be able to get through a day in the office. During my first period post-surgery I didn’t need a single paracetamol tablet. It felt like a miracle. Mr Tsepov’s clinical nurse specialist, Vicky Burea, is amazing and has been available ‘day and night’ to help and advise me throughout the last 4 years. Mr Tsepov, Vicky, Mr Christopher Chan, Dr Ah Fee Chan, and the rest of their team are not only experts in their respective fields but endlessly patient and caring - and great fun too! Thank you for everything.

    Dr Denis Tsepov is an outstanding consultant. Friendly, supportive and extremely knowledgeable. I was very confident and comfortable going for surgery only because I was under the care of Mr Tsepov. I would recommend him to other people without thinking for a second as everything was very well organised and the before and after care was excellent.

    Mr. Tsepov is hands down the best consultant I’ve dealt with. After not having having much faith in the medical system and many years of suffering in silence, it was a breath of fresh air to meet someone who actually listens to you and wants to help you! I was quickly given a surgery date where what he had expected was found and removed, I am now starting my treatment plan and have complete confidence that if I ever have any problems I will be able to speak to Mr. Tsepov or his assistants Nadia and Vicky who are also brilliant at their jobs!

    Great rapport built over such a short period of time. Dr Tsepov really took time to explain different aspects of my treatment. This was my first time having surgery, and honestly the most pain I felt post surgery was removing the wound drainage. The whole experience has been comfortable and peaceful. Very thankful!
