As Cyprus largest private maternity clinic dedicated entirely to the care of women and children, we understand the sensitivity in seeking treatment for one of the complexities of women’s health.
With advances in medicine the majority of all gynaecological procedures are now performed laparoscopically. Laparoscopic surgery is performed using an instrument called a laparoscope which allows your doctor to see and operate in the abdomen without having to use a large incision. Two or three smaller incisions are made along the sides of the abdomen, to allow passage of highly specialised surgical instruments. Laparoscopic techniques allow surgery to be performed with less trauma to patients, and minimal damage to body tissues. This often means fewer days in the hospital, and much less pain during recovery. In many cases, patients go home the same day or the next morning.
Our team of experienced laparoscopic surgeons, are here to answer all your questions, and to explain the range of benefits of a laparoscopic procedure. The Medical Centre has recently invested heavily in our laparoscopic unit, both in HD technology and state-of-the-art laparoscopic instruments.
Services which are offered include:
Laparoscopy can be used for diagnosis, treatment, or both and a diagnostic procedure can turn into an operative procedure when required. Unexplained pelvic pain, infertility and a history of pelvic infection are some of the conditions that could require diagnostic laparoscopy.
Some types of laparoscopic treatment include:
- Hysterectomy (total removal of the uterus)
- Endometrial tissue ablation (endometriosis treatment)
- Removal of Ovarian Cysts
- Removal of Fibroids
- Adhesion Removal
A hysteroscopy is a procedure during which the inside of the uterus (womb) is examined using a thin narrow type tube called a hysteroscope.
Diagnostic hysteroscopy to look for any abnormalities of the uterus and find the cause for any symptoms you may be experiencing.
Operative hysteroscopy is when a hysteroscopy involves an additional procedure to be done. This commonly means taking a biopsy (taking a small sample of tissue to be tested), or removing a polyp, fibroid or resection of a uterine diaphragm, etc.
