With significant medical advances made in gynaecology in recent years, many treatments now have minimally invasive alternatives. Together, you and your consultant can decide the best route for you and develop a tailor-made treatment package to achieve optimum results.
Gynaecological Laparoscopy & Hysteroscopy
A hysteroscopy is a procedure to examine the inside of the uterus (womb) using a small telescope (hysteroscope).
It is used to find out the cause of abnormal bleeding from the womb, particularly from heavy periods and bleeding after the menopause. It will assist to investigate if you have polyps, fibroids, an abnormally-shaped womb or endometrial cancer.
Vaginal Wall Repair
When the muscles in your vagina become weak, the organs (including your, uterus, bowel or bladder) they support may push forward or prolapse towards the opening of the vagina, this is known as a vaginal prolapse.
An anterior repair, also known as an anterior colporrhaphy or an anterior vaginal wall repair, is a surgical procedure that reinforces the support layer between the bladder and the vagina. The bladder is pushed back into its normal position and the support tissue between the front of the vagina and the bladder is tightened and reinforced.
A hysterectomy is an operation to remove the uterus. It may also include the removal of the cervix, ovaries, fallopian tubes and other surrounding structures. The common reasons for having a vaginal hysterectomy include uterine prolapse, heavy periods and fibroids.
An oophorectomy surgery is a procedure to remove one or both of a woman's ovaries. The surgery is commonly performed to prevent or treat conditions, such as ovarian cancer or endometriosis.
Sterilisation reversal surgery is known as unblocking or re-joining the fallopian tubes to the ovaries. This procedure does not guarantee the chances of becoming pregnant, because it depends on various factors like the condition of your fallopian tubes, if you have any scar tissue, etc. Your consultant will discuss it with you prior to the procedure.
