Laparoscopy, the surgical discipline that inserts a flexible tube carrying a light and camera through a small incision, to view abdominal organs and passages, is used to perform all types of Gynaecological procedures including complex surgeries. This has resulted in reduced morbidity, post-operative pain, blood loss, infection rates and short hospital stays. Performing highly complex surgeries such as surgeries for Deep Endometriosis and Wertheim’s Hysterectomy using laparascopy requires advanced surgical skill. Durdans Hospital Gynaecology and Obstetrics Unit comprises of highly specialised Gynaecological surgeons for performing almost all laparoscopic surgeries.
Timely intervention of laparoscopic conditions is crucial to avoid infertility and complications later on. Some common conditions encountered are Endometriosis (womb lining growing outside the womb), ovarian cysts, benign diseases and tumours, pelvic pain, ectopic pregnancy (foetus growing outside the womb), womb cancer, adhesions (organs glued together), ovarian cancer and uterine prolapse (lowering of womb through the vagina).
Dr. Dhammika Silva, Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at Durdans Hospital says, “As womb, ovarian and uterine conditions become more common among women, laparoscopic surgery provides a less painful alternative to traditional open surgery.” Gynaecological endoscopy is being increasingly used for endometriosis management, removal of the womb, removal of tumours in the ovaries, reconstructive procedures of womb, hysterectomy of early stage ovarian cancer and womb cancer.
Dr. Silva goes on to state, “All laparoscopic surgeries done anywhere else in the world can be performed to the exact same standards at Durdans Hospital. Also all Gynaecological surgeries can now be performed laparoscopically with only a few exceptions”.
