Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery

We understand that today’s woman needs to be mobile and unrestricted to maintain the lifestyle she’s used to. We also understand that an unpleasant abdominal scar does not necessarily have to be the price of a good surgical outcome.

Keyhole surgery is our specialty and one modality of this is the full range of advanced laparoscopic surgical options we offer.

These combine the benefits of simplicity and short hospital stays (mostly day case) with minimal abdominal scarring and faster recovery.

The range of advanced laparoscopic procedures we offer include:

Laparoscopic reversal of sterilisation
This involves reopening the fallopian tubes in women who were previously sterilised but now wish to try for a natural pregnancy. This is achieved by keyhole surgery with a high success rate that makes it very worthwhile. The advantage of this over IVF treatment is that the woman can potentially have more children without the need for further medical intervention. This is normally a day case procedure with about 2 week's recuperation.

Laparoscopic cervical cerclage
This involves placing a stitch around the neck of the womb by keyhole surgery in women who have repeated mid-pregnancy miscarriages and for whom vaginal stitches have been unsuccessful. This is normally a day case procedure with about 2 week's recuperation.

Laparoscopic tubal surgery
This involves reopening the fallopian tubes in women with some types of tubal infertility to assist them in conceiving naturally. The advantage of this over IVF treatment is that the woman can potentially have more children without the need for more medical interventions. This is normally a day case procedure with about 2 week's recuperation.

Laparoscopic excision of endometriosis
The scope of this type of keyhole surgery ranges from simple excision of mild endometriosis all the way to complex procedures to remove endometriosis from the rectovaginal septum. We utilise various forms of energy to achieve this including ultrasound and diathermy. This is normally a day case procedure with 2 weeks recuperation for mild-moderate endometriosis and a 1-2 day hospital stay with about 4 weeks recuperation for severe disease.

Laparoscopic excision of ovarian cysts
This involves removal of troublesome cysts from the ovaries whilst retaining the ovary itself so that they continue to function for the woman. We deal with all types and sizes of ovarian cyst including endometriotic, dermoid, haemorrhagic and simple cysts. This is normally a day case procedure with about 2 week's recuperation.

Laparoscopic hysterectomy
This involves removing of the entire womb (total hysterectomy) or the womb without the cervix (subtotal hysterectomy) for any reason. This normally involves a 1-2 day hospital stay and about 4 weeks for recuperation.

Laparoscopic myomectomy (fibroid removal)
This involves removal of uterine fibroids from the womb while conserving the womb and is particularly beneficial for women with fibroids who also wish to retain the option for future fertility. This normally involves a 1-2 day hospital stay and about 4 weeks of recuperation.

Laparoscopic adhesiolysis
Adhesions sometimes are associated with pelvic pain, delay in conceiving and interference with bowel function. We can remove adhesions by keyhole surgery and this is normally a day case procedure with about 2 week's recuperation.
