Advanced Minimally Invasive Surgery (Keyhole) Including Removal of the Womb, Fibroids, Ovarian Cysts, and for Subfertility
For women who are considering surgical intervention to remove fibroids, ovarian cysts, or the uterus, a laparoscopy or keyhole surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures to consider. It is a minimally invasive procedure that involves an endoscope (a long, flexible tube with a light and a camera attached to the tip) introduced through a small incision.
The major advantage of keyhole surgery is it allows the surgeon to perform an operation without having to create a large incision, compared to the conventional approach. Gynaecological keyhole surgery is an excellent tool for visualizing the fallopian tubes, ovaries and uterus using a fiber-optic flashlight and high definition monitors. The miniature camera attached can render high definition videos and still images. The surgical scars from this procedure are small and recovery is faster. It is safer and less expensive as it cuts back on your hospital stay.
Aside from the conditions and concerns mentioned above, keyhole surgery can also be used for the following:
Diagnosis and treatment of pelvic inflammatory disease
Diagnosis and treatment of chronic pelvic pain
Diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis
Removal of uterus (hysterectomy)
Blocked Fallopian Tubes
Pelvic Organ Prolapse
If you prefer a less invasive approach for your planned surgery, keyhole surgery is an option to consider. Book an appointment with Dr. Pamela Tan today and learn more about this procedure.
