Invasive Gynecology

Diagnostic & Interventional laparoscopy

Laparoscopy is one of the most useful tools of gynecology. Because of being a surgery, the doctor should introduce a special telescope within the abdominal cavity in order to control the reproductive system and other organs. The surgery is very light, it is done under full anesthesia and it is used for diagnostic and therapeutic reasons.

Through this, there can be surgeries such as:

  1. Removal of fibroids
  2. Treatment of ectopic pregnancy
  3. Cystectomy
  4. Treatment of endometriosis

and many others, without the need of laparotomy, which is the surgery of the abdomen.

Usually, the patients can leave after 24 hours. The result is less suffering, lower cost and of course restoring health, without loss of working hours, family peace and programming.

Diagnostic & Interventional Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy is similar to laparoscopy. The difference is that through this surgery we control the inner uterus. It is done through the vagina. It has therapeutic importance such as:

  1. Removal of fibroids
  2. Removal of polyps
  3. Adhesiolysis
  4. Restoration of the uterine cavity and other features.

The patient can leave the same day.

Colposcopy - Cervical Surgery

The colposcopy is the examination of the vulva, vagina and cervix, through a stereoscopic microscope. It is useful, because it enlarges the number of lesions, making diagnosis easier. The illnesses that can be diagnosed from the colposcopy are: cytological lesions of the cervix, vagina and vulva.

Through this stereoscopic microscope, laser can be put outside the genital tract with excellent therapeutic results and the patient can go home the same day.

In the cervix various interventions take place by various diseases. One of the most common is the interference of cervical virus HPV, which causes precancerous lesions. The therapy in the first stage is easy and has good results. It can be done through laser, through electrocautery, through  a high frequency current, by removing an electrical scalpel or with scalpel classic.

Prevention is an effective treatment. This is a reason why women should have check ups frequently, at least three times per year in a clinic and shall not to relyonly on Test Pap results.

Vaginal surgeries

Many surgeries can be carried out in transabdominal route:

Prolapse of the uterus. The prolapse of the uterus occurs quite often and it is usually  followed by co-reduction of the urinary bladder and part of the intestine, called the rectum. These may be corrected surgically through the vagina without opening the abdomen.

Vaginal hysterectomy. Removal of the uterus from the vagina may be done, if there are certain circumstances. The surgery, despite its technical difficulty, is lighter for the patient.

Tightening the vagina. After many births, the vagina tends to lose its elasticity, getting wider several times because of anatomic changes that may spoil the sexual life of women, with everything that entails. Rehabilitation and upgrading of functional vagina is surgically possible with excellent results and minimal discomfort.

Correction kysteokilis. The case of early fall of the bladder, which can also cause incontinence, together with all ancillary symptoms can be corrected operatively from the vagina, with excellent results.

Correction orthokilis. The early fall of part of the intestine called "the rectum" is corrected through the transabdominal route, having as a result the removal of symptoms such as constipation, weight at bay, dysparefnia (pain during intercourse) and various other symptoms.
