Welcome to the Circle Health Group website. We've changed our name from BMI Healthcare.
Rigid cystoscopy involves examination of the inside of your bladder using a rigid telescopic tube (cystoscope).
A rigid cystoscopy is a procedure to check for any problems in your bladder using a rigid telescope (cystoscope). Sometimes certain problems with your bladder and urinary tubes can be treated at the same time.
Our price package includes the cost of your surgery and all appropriate aftercare appointments. Our costs include all surgery fees and aftercare appointments with our Consultants.
However, any pre-surgery diagnostic tests and your consultant’s outpatient appointment consultation fee are charged separately. We provide fixed term monthly payment plans over one to five years with no deposit required. If you decide to pay over 12 months, you will pay interest-free. If you are paying for a longer period, you will pay 9.9% APR.
Our flexible payment options help you spread the cost of your payment across a time period that suits you. More details on our flexible payment options can be found here.
*This is a guide price for patients who are paying for their own treatment. The actual cost of your treatment will be confirmed in writing at the time of booking.
It is possible to have a flexible cystoscopy that needs only an anaesthetic jelly. However, certain problems with your bladder and urinary tubes cannot be treated with a flexible cystoscopy.
Your doctor will use the cystoscope to look for any problems in the lining of your bladder and will be able to perform biopsies. If your doctor finds a small growth or stone, it may be possible to remove it through the cystoscope.
Like all surgical procedures, there are some complications that can be serious and can even cause death. Please bear in mind the general and specific complications regarding this type of operation.
You should be able to return to work the day after the cystoscopy unless you are told otherwise. With regular exercise should help you to return to normal activities as soon as possible. Before you start exercising, ask the healthcare team or your GP for advice.
In addition, the healthcare team will tell you what was found during the cystoscopy and discuss with you any treatment or follow-up you need.
