This involves inserting a narrow telescope (hysteroscope) into the uterus via the vagina and cervix. It allows for the examination of the lining of the uterus and can also be used to treat polyps, fibroids or for treatment of heavy bleeding.
Treatments include ablation, resection of fibroids or septae and adhesion management.
Laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery involves inserting a telescope into the patient’s umbilicus (belly button) through a small incision. A further 1-3 incisions may be
required to complete the surgery. These include ovarian cyst surgery, hysterectomy, myomectomy and complex endometriosis surgery.
The advantages of laparoscopic surgery cannot be understated, with shorter hospital stays, many patients able to go home on the day, less pain, faster recovery, reduced risk of infection and improved cosmesis.
In select patients, their laparoscopic surgery can be performed by making a single
1.5cm in their umbilicus. This can result in an even better cosmetic outcome than for traditional laparoscopy as the scar can be hidden in the folds of the umbilicus.
The reduced port number may
also result in reduced post-operative pain.
Colposcopy is used to further investigate an abnormal cervical screen test result. It involves a thorough examination of the cervix using a microscope (colposcope).
In some cases, abnormal cells will be visible and a small biopsy may be taken to determine if further treatment is needed. After a biopsy, there may be some light
bleeding or discharge and it is important not to use tampons and avoid intercourse for a week.
