The Lister Hospital is a leading private treatment centre for a wide range of women’s health problems.
Our bones lose their density gradually, as a natural part of ageing. Bones become more brittle, mainly because of osteoporosis. If your doctor suspects you may have this debilitating disease, you may be referred for a bone density scan and to a specialist osteoporosis clinic. The disease can be treated with oral or injection therapies, to avoid or treat osteoporotic fractures.
Our consultant rheumatologists also care for patients with conditions like arthritis, bone and muscle diseases, and conditions affecting soft tissues.
Our breast care service covers everything from diagnosis to treatment and uses the latest state-of-the-art scanning and imaging equipment for breast assessment, including digital mammography.
A specialist Breast Care Nurse is always available to provide support, advice and guidance on any aspect of your breast problem.
