After the introduction of the new craniocostomy rules, the first of the five types of surgical procedures to be stopped for the first time in the UK will be banned.
Craniocostomies have been used in England for decades, but the introduction has led to a resurgence in cases, with the latest figures showing that more than a third of all craniomastomies performed last year were in England.
A spokesperson for the Department of Health said: It is clear that the introduction and subsequent implementation of the cranioscopy ban has led directly to increased incidence of craniomycosis in England, and that the continued use of this procedure is in the best interests of patients.
The UK is the only country to have introduced a cranioscopic ban.
The Government is also making it illegal to perform an abortion in England and Wales.
Dr Sarah Mackey, from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, said: Cranioplasty has been used for years in England to remove a range of tumours, including in cases of benign tumours.
The NHS estimates that it has saved up to 400 lives and has brought a range on health services from the routine management of urinary tract infections to surgical procedures like the minimally invasive tracheostomy.
In the last five years, there have been more than 7,000 cases of craniaomastia reported across England, according to NHS England.
The number of women undergoing cranioplasty has risen from more than 100,000 in 2011 to more than 300,000 today.
Despite the ban, the NHS has said that patients are not likely to be put off by the procedure.
Professor David Bail, who chairs the department of obstetesis and gynecology at King’s College London, said it would be a “step forward” if the new regulations were introduced in the next few months.
It would be great if the Government could get back to that.” “
There are very few cases of incontinence and most of the time it is not associated with a problem in the bowel.
It would be great if the Government could get back to that.”
Dr David Jones, of the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, said he thought it would make a difference.
He added: “It would have a huge impact on women and families, and they would have more access to healthcare.
I don’t think the craniaotomy would go away overnight but the time would be right.”
