At GynaeMD Women’s & Rejuvenation Clinic, our gynaecologist offers patients both diagnostic and therapeutic laparoscopy and hysteroscopy.
Laparoscopic or key-hole surgery involves making a small cut into the umbilicus so that a tiny telescope can be inserted to examine your reproductive organs and to look for any anomaly, problems or damage. With laparoscopy, we can get a better close-up view of the pelvic organs and safely remove ovarian cysts, endometriosis, fibroids and even the uterus. Other benefits of laparoscopic surgery are shorter hospital stays, minimal post-op discomfort, reduced infection, a faster recovery and smaller aesthetically-pleasing surgical scars.
Hysteroscopy is a minor surgical procedure that may be performed in a day surgery centre with or without anaesthesia. It involves placing a thin, telescope-like device through the vagina and cervix to look inside the womb. It can help with the diagnosis or treatment of a uterine problem. The procedure poses low risk for most women.
