The London Gynaecologist

Mr Joseph Aquilina | FRCOG MFFP | Consultant Obstretician

“I would say that Dr Aquilina is very understanding and personable.
I’ve actually already recommended him to one of my colleagues who
has been going through the same kind of thing. I’ve always felt every
step of the process has been tailored in my best interest – I’ve never
felt like just another patient.”

“Mr Aquilina is very trusting and understanding. He will come into the room
before the surgery to talk through what is going to happen – but he also is very good
at listening. He really knows his patients as an individual.”

“I would recommend Dr Aquilina, not just because of his vast
experience and level of professionalism through all stages of the
pregnancy, but because he makes you feel that he cares about you
as an individual.”

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a very common condition affecting at least 14% of all women of reproductive age.

Heavy Bleeding

There are a number of reasons for heavy bleeding. We can investigate possible causes and offer treatment if necessary.


The most common known cause of heavy bleeding is the presence of fibroids in the womb. We can offer a range of treatments to help.

Menstrual Disorders

A one-stop Menstrual Disorder clinic for the investigation and treatment of women with menstrual problems and postmenopausal bleeding.

Intra-uterine system (IUS)

The IUS is a contraceptive device that's placed in the womb (uterus). It can also help women who suffer from very heavy periods (menorrhagia).


Endometriosis is a condition in which cells that normally line the womb (uterus) grow outside the womb in other parts of the body.



A gynaecological laparoscopy is a procedure that allows a surgeon to examine your fallopian tubes, ovaries and womb (uterus).

HPV Test

HPV testing has been introduced in some parts of the UK as part of the National Cervical Screening Programme.


A hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows a surgeon to look inside the womb using telescopic camera called a hysteroscope.

Endometrial biopsy

An endometrial biopsy is when we may need to check a small sample of the womb lining (the endometrium).

TCRF (transcervical resection of Fiboids

TCRF is a procedure in which the fibroids in lining of the uterus are removed or shaved to make the lining normal (also called resected) with a wire loop.


This is a method of looking at your womb and ovaries using sound waves. During the scan the size and lining of the womb and the ovaries are checked.

HyCoSy Test

To help discover what may be contributing to your difficulty in becoming pregnant, this test will enable us to assess your fallopian tubes and uterus (womb).
