Minimally Invasive Gynaecology

As technology progresses, the world – and everything we use – is getting smaller. Gynaecological surgery is no different.

The world of women’s healthcare is heavily in favour of replacing traditional surgical techniques with minimally-invasive gynaecology (MIG). This includes procedures and surgeries which utilise any form of camera (scope) to evaluate or treat a gynaecological condition. While some of the MIG techniques are performed in the clinic setting, others may require anaesthesia.

We tend to worry when a doctor mentions “surgery” of any kind. However, with minimally invasive techniques, many fears can be allayed. MIG procedures require greater surgical experience and proficiency, but allow for quicker patient recovery. Patients may go home on the same day or the day after surgery, even if that surgery is a hysterectomy. Generally, our patients are able to eat and walk within two to four hours after surgery and often resume their daily activities (including work) within a week of surgery.

With a few exceptions, minimally invasive surgery can replace traditional surgery for nearly all gynaecological problems that require surgery: from ovarian cysts to pelvic pain, from fibroids to hysterectomy. At Mediclinic Welcare Hospital, we are committed to providing this state-of-the-art approach for any patient requiring surgical intervention.
