Ovarian Dermoid Cyst

Mr Sanusi offers a range of investigations, diagnostic tools and treatments. As Mr Sanusi can perform ultrasound scans himself, he is often able to offer a diagnosis in the clinic. For example if an ovarian cyst was present it is likely to show up on the scan. He also performs laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis and offers investigations for bladder problems if indicated.
