Surgery

Given my experience and additional surgical training, I am able to provide access to a wide variety of surgical options where appropriate when all possible conservative and medical measures have been exhausted. In complex clinical situations, I work with a great group of other specialists such as Colorectal surgeons (bowel surgeons), Urogynaecologists, Gynaecological oncologists (Surgeons in Gynaecological Cancers) and Urologists in order to deliver the most appropriate treatment for you.

Surgical options offered are

Hysteroscopy

Is a minimally invasive day procedure which allows visualization of the patient’s uterine cavity through the cervix (neck of the womb).

This modality of surgery allows treatment of polyps, fibroids, heavy periods (Endometrial ablation), anatomical anomalies of the uterus (adhesions, Asherman syndrome, septum)

Vaginal Surgery

Is a minimally invasive procedure which involves surgery through vaginal access with no incisions made over the abdomen in most instances.

This type of surgery is commonly used to treat vaginal prolapse, removal of uterus (hysterectomy), structural anomalies and incontinence (leakage of urine).

Abdominal Surgery

Used to be how majority of Gynaecological surgery was performed but has now rapidly been replaced by laparoscopic or other less invasive options where applicable.

Abdominal surgery can be performed for the following indications such as hysterectomy (removal of uterus), myomectomy (removal of fibroids), excision of endometriosis, ovarian cysts, risk reducing surgery, prolapse repair, permanent contraception and cervical cerclage (suture).

Abdominal approach to surgery is often used when less invasive options are not the most appropriate option for management.

Laparoscopy

Is a minimally invasive procedure which allows visualization of the patient’s pelvis and abdomen via a small incision (keyhole). Laparoscopy offer a benefit over conventional abdominal surgery as it is associated with reduced post operative pain, length of stay and quicker return to normal function.

Laparoscopic surgery can be performed for the following indications such as hysterectomy (removal of uterus), myomectomy (removal of fibroids), excision of endometriosis, ovarian cysts, risk reducing surgery, prolapse repairincontinence, permanent contraception, cervical cerclage (suture).
