Since our laboratory is based within the ISIS Clinic we also have the opportunity to offer our patients top quality surgical investigations if necessary. We have excellent laparoscopic surgeons with vast experience in the field who are formally trained and routinely practice advanced laparoscopic surgery. Our theatre nurses are also trained to handle and prepare patients for this type of surgery and we use state of the art instruments and equipment. Our anaesthetists are experienced in dealing with such cases and are fully competent to deal with any rarely arising anaesthetic complications.
Diagnostic Laparoscopy and hysteroscopy for the investigation of infertility or pelvic pain.
Laparoscopic treatment for endometriosis and the removal of endometriomas.
Laparoscopic removal of ovarian cysts with minimal damage to the ovary.
Ovarian drilling- treatment for polycystic ovaries.
Laparoscopic removal / repair of damaged tubes.
Treatment of ectopic pregnancy.
Removal of fibroids and ovaries.
Operations inside the uterus- division of septum & adhesions for fertility optimisation.
Removal of polyps inside the uterus using superfine ‘instruments’.
Most gynaecological surgery is currently performed laparoscopically (keyhole). The clinically proven advantages include a reduction of adhesions (scar tissue) inside the abdomen, much shorter hospital stays (in most cases the need to stay is just for a few hours) and a much faster return to normal activities. There is also the added advantage of minimal scars on the skin, usually only 5mm in size. In fertility cases, this laparoscopic option compared to open surgery is much more beneficial.
We are equipped with state of the art microtechnology and hence our laparoscopic instruments allow the finest movements to be performed with extreme accuracy and stability and, more importantly, safety. The camera systems used are of a high definition digital technology, offering a wide angle and superb quality view of the abdominal cavity and the operating field.
