Areas of Expertise: Women’s Health
The areas that I have a special interest in include:
I have extensive experience in the laparoscopic excision of endometriosis and find this treatment very satisfying for those who require it.
Once other causes (fibroids, polyps, cysts) have been excluded, many simple procedures can treat this life inconvenience.
I recommend the use of the Mirena IUCD or Endometrial Ablation. Rarely a hysterectomy is discussed, and if required, keyhole or laparoscopic surgery is recommended.
Many minor abnormalities are treated by a wait and see approach and reassurance that this is the right way can be given after initial assessment, probable small biopsy and HPV assessment (a special test done on the pap smear). When further treatment is required, both the treatment and follow up will be planned so that you can have confidence in the future.
I have significant experience in treating and managing these normal gynaecological conditions.
Vaginal repair or tightening procedures can improve quality of life for many after childbirth. For best clinical outcomes, if incontinence procedures were required, this would be performed in combination with an Urogynaecologist.
Some families have clusters of Breast and Ovarian Cancer in the female members. It can be seen down the generations. Management of this is a joint process with Geneticists, Breast Surgeons, Oncologists and Gynaecologists.
If this decision has been made, planning a Laparoscopic Hysterectomy will make the process easier.
