General Practitioner and Gynaecologist Information
Helica is a Scottish company who have invented and developed the Helica Thermal Coagulator which is a plasma electro-surgical device that can be used to treat endometriosis laparoscopically. There are at present 45 units in NHS and private hospitals in the UK.
Diagnostic laparoscopy is now recommended by the Royal College of Obstetrics & Gynaecology if endometriosis or other surgical problems are suspected. To treat the patient early is found to be less expensive than protracted drug therapy and an eventual operation, which may be too late. The Helica TC can be easily used at the time of the laparoscopy and can in most cases where endometriosis is present, give pain relief and increased fertility.
There is an information pack which we will be pleased to send to you if requested by telephone, fax or e-mail. The Helica TC has won the John Logie Baird Award for Innovation, is a Millennium Product and has FDA approval in the USA.
