Miss Victoria Cook has been a consultant gynaecologist at The Hillingdon Hospital NHS Foundation Trust since 2003 having previously trained in various hospitals across London. She does a weekly clinic at Bishops Wood Hospital. Miss Cook has a special interest in urogynaecology and vulval diseases. This means that in addition to working as a general gynaecologist, Miss Cook specialises in bladder problems and prolapse. Working in the NHS she works as part of a multidisciplinary team advising and treating patients with incontinence, recurrent urinary tract infections and bladder pain; Miss Cook is able to bring that expertise to patients seeing her at Bishops Wood Hospital, liaising with other specialists as appropriate. Miss Cook is happy to discuss differing approaches to managing symptoms of prolapse, including the use of various pessaries, referral to Women’s Health Physiotherapy and when necessary pelvic floor surgery.
Miss Cook has extensive experience of working in the combined vulval clinic at Hillingdon, working closely with dermatology and sexual health colleagues in the management of vulval skin problems. She is happy to see patients with itching, pain or irritation of the vulval skin and advise on diagnosis and most importantly to work collaboratively with the patient to control these troublesome of symptoms.
Finally, with over 20 years of experience of general gynaecology Miss Victoria Cook is happy to see patients with problems with their periods, using appropriate investigations to diagnose any underlying problems and then advising on appropriate medication or surgical intervention. Miss Cook is happy to work with patients who have menopausal symptoms; advising on Hormone Replacement Therapy when appropriate.
Miss Cook prides herself on her communication, working collaboratively with all her patients to achieve the best possible outcomes.
