Gynaecological disorders can affect a woman’s reproductive organs in the pelvis. For most women, these disorders tend to cause one or more symptoms such as:

  • Severe pain in the lower abdomen
  • Abnormally severe menstrual pains
  • Vaginal bleeding
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Protruding lumps
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Missed menstrual periods despite not being pregnant.

When addressing gynaecological disorders, medication may be effective in some conditions. However in many conditions surgery may be the only option.

Which Gynaecologic Surgery Is For You?

It is always a good idea to learn more about the types of gynaecological surgeries that are available before you need them. Generally, there are four ways of performing gynaecological surgeries

  • Open Surgery
    Open surgery, also known as conventional surgery, requires a relatively large surgical incision, and, compared to less-invasive methods, recovery from open surgery takes longer.
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery
    In Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Surgery (MIS), doctors use various techniques to operate, mainly through multiple small incisions in the abdomen. The advantage of this procedure is that it is less painful, shorter hospital stay and fewer complications.
  • Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)
    This is a form of minimally invasive surgery whereby the surgery is performed only through a single incision in the abdomen, resulting in lesser trauma to the patient’s skin and muscles.
  • Vaginal Surgery including vaginal natural orifice transluminal endoscopic (vNOTES) Surgery
    This surgery is completely performed through the vagina. There is no incision in the abdomen. When the surgery is performed with the assistance of a laparoscope it is called vNOTES surgery.
