Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Laparoscopic Surgery

Also known as keyhole or minimally invasive surgery, laparoscopy surgery allows the gynaecologist to view the insides of the abdomen and pelvis and check for any abnormality or damage to the internal organs without having to make large incisions in the skin. It is performed under general anaesthesia.

During the procedure, a small tube connected to a light source and camera is first inserted through the umbilicus. The camera then relays images of the abdomen or pelvis onto a television screen.

Laparoscopic surgery is commonly used to treat endometriosis, pelvic adhesions, fibroids, ovarian cysts and ectopic pregnancy. It can also be used to assess tubal patency for infertility. Some of these surgeries may not require an overnight stay in hospital.

The advantages of laparoscopy over open surgery are quicker recovery and return to normal daily activities, less post-operative pain, less need for pain-relieving medicines, minimal scarring and a shorter stay in the hospital.

Hysteroscopic Procedures

Hysteroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure used to examine the inside of the uterus (womb). It is carried out using a narrow tube called a hysteroscope, which is connected to a camera and a television system at the end.

Hysteroscopy surgery in Singapore is an outpatient procedure done under local, regional or general anaesthesia, or with mild sedation. It can be combined with other surgical procedures and can be diagnostic or therapeutic in nature. It is frequently used to investigate causes of heavy or irregular periods, inter-menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, unusual vaginal discharge, repeated miscarriage and infertility.
