He is the lead clinician for hysteroscopic surgery at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital and has special interests in treating women with heavy periods & pelvic pain, and in hysteroscopic and laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery. Mr Burrell offers conservative treatments for heavy periods as well as the latest advances in endometrial ablation & performs hysterectomy when other options are not suitable. Having undergone specific training he is able to perform laparoscopic hysterectomy in addition to more traditional abdominal and vaginal methods.
He has a particular interest in the management of endometriosis which can cause pain and subfertility and performs laparoscopic surgery to provide a definitive diagnosis. Laparoscopy allows laser treatment to relieve symptoms & enables a faster recovery than other surgery methods. Mr Burrell finds it very rewarding to see women who have benefited from such surgery.
Mr Burrell runs a high quality ultrasound scanning service, performing both gynaecology and pregnancy scans & is the lead clinician for Fetal Medicine scanning at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital.
Mr Burrell acts as an expert witness for medico-legal disputes. Please contact us for more information.
