MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY

LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY

  • Laparoscopic (or key-hole) surgery is carried out under general anaesthesia. It involves a small cut in the abdomen so that a tiny telescope can be inserted to examine your reproductive organs and look for any abnormality, problems or damage.
  • Laparoscopic surgery can treat problems such as endometriosis, pelvic adhesions, fibroids, ovarian cysts and ectopic pregnancy.
  • Laparoscopic surgical procedures that we perform include laparoscopic removal of ovarian cysts, ovaries, fallopian tubes, fibroids, adhesions and the womb.
  • The benefits are no or shorter hospital stays, minimal post-op discomfort, reduced analgesia, faster return to normal activities and aesthetically pleasing scars.

 

HYSTEROSCOPIC PROCEDURES

  • Hysteroscopy is minor surgery that may be performed in a day surgery centre with local, regional, or general anesthesia or no anesthesia at all. It involves placing a thin, telescope-like device through the vagina and cervix to look inside the womb. It may help us diagnose or treat a uterine problem. The procedure poses little risk for most women.
