Simple Outpatient Procedure Cures Majority of Patients with Vertigo

Mr Frosh is one of only a few doctors locally (Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex and North London) who are able to do the “Epley Manoeuvre” in patients with a form of Vertigo/ Dizziness known as “Benign Paroxysmal Positonal Vertigo” (BPPV).

This condition causes short episodes of vertigo (intense dizziness) when you move your head in certain directions. This can seriously interfere with the quality of sufferer’s lives and their ability to carry out day to day activities. More information about this condition is available here.

Mr Frosh has recently audited his results of using the Epley manoeuvre. Over 80% of patients are cured with just one treatment and even more are cured after a second treatment. This means patients will not have to take medication, but are simply cured and able to get the quality of their lives back.

If you believe you have this condition, you should be assessed to confirm the cause and to receive the appropriate treatment. You can ask to be referred on the NHS by your GP or contact Mr Frosh privately.
