One Stop Gynaecology
Mr Gardner is the lead for a single visit endometrial cancer screening service for women with postmenopausal bleeding. He has also aided in the set up of the colposcopy service. An expert in ambulatory gynaecology (also known as office gynaecology), he is pioneering a single visit menstrual disorder clinic where again women will have the opportunity to have all the investigations and the treatment in the outpatient setting.
In the treatment of Endometrial Cancer, Mr Gardner is expert in Minimal Access Surgical (MAS) Techniques. He has dramatically improved the post-operative recovery of patients reducing inpatient stay from 3-7 days for open surgery to 1-2 days for MAS treated patients.
Mr Gardner practises privately in London at Twenty-five Harley Street Day Clinic.
