No restrictions to treatment during second lockdown!
These are difficult days for endometriosis and pelvic pain sufferers who have been bumped significantly down the list of current medical priorities in public health systems.

We are here to help you if you need us.
The UK Government is keen for people to still be able to access healthcare for all conditions in the second lockdown so we will remain open for business as usual (though virtual consultations are still available if you prefer).

Peter Barton-Smith established The Endometriosis Clinic in London in 2016 in order to provide exemplary and sympathetic help to women suffering from pelvic pain and endometriosis. He believes that too often endometriosis is treated by general gynaecologists and there is a need for specialist care to get the best results.
He has been practising Medicine for over 23 years and has been working with endometriosis since 2004, and exclusively with endometriosis since 2013.
He trained in surgery for complex severe endometriosis during a four-year fellowship at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford from 2004-2008 where he also completed a Doctorate degree in Endometriosis at the University of Surrey.
Peter established the first UK Robotic Gynaecological Surgery Programme in 2009 at the Royal Surrey before moving to Singapore General Hospital from 2013-2016 as a Senior Consultant to establish a robotic surgery programme specialising in complex surgery for endometriosis and has one of the largest series of cases worldwide.
Peter was a founding member and President of BIARGS (British and Irish Association of Robotic Gynaecological Surgeons) and was Vice President of Society of European Robotic Gynaecological Surgery. He was a founding member of the Asian Society of Gynaecological Robotic Surgery. He was co-organiser of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists UK national theory course for laparoscopic surgery from 2006-2012, a faculty member of the European Surgical Institute, and has taught and been an invited speaker on robotic surgery and endometriosis in many countries around the world.
