Gynaecology surgery and treatments

Discover the different gynaecological surgeries, procedures and treatment options available…

Ablation of endometriosis

This is a surgical procedure to remove the womb, and is used to treat conditions such as fibroids, intractable heavy periods not responding to medical treatment or Mirena Coil, or endometrial ablation.

Hysteroscopic sterilisation

In this surgical procedure, implants are inserted into the patient’s fallopian tubes, causing them to form scar tissue, and eventually to block.

Private hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy is a procedure in which a narrow tube with a telescope at the end called a hysteroscope is inserted into the uterus, sending images to a computer to give a close-up of the womb. This helps with diagnosis in cases where the patient is experiencing a range of issues, including pelvic pain and infertility. Hysteroscopy can also be used to remove fibroids.

Labial surgery (non-cosmetic)

Labial surgery, or labiaplasty, is a surgical procedure to alter the folds of skin surrounding the external female genitalia.

Marsupialisation of cysts

This surgical technique involves cutting a slit into a cyst and suturing the edges so the site remains open and can freely drain.

Menstrual disorders

Surgical procedures may include: insertion of Mirena coil, hysteroscopy (an endoscopic examination of the uterus, or endometrial ablation (where the lining of the Uterus is destroyed using heat which is delivered through a microwave energy probe), or if all other interventions have failed, hysterectomy, (where the uterus is removed).

Excision of vulval perineal lesions

Lesions around the female genitalia can occur at different stages of life and be caused by different conditions from cysts to infections and even cancer. A visit to your GP for tests will help to determine the cause and arrange treatment.

What is gynaecology?

Gynaecology is the area of medicine that involves the treatment of women's diseases - specifically located in the reproductive organs. It covers a broad range, from gynaecological oncology to rectum, bladder, and urethra issues.

Gynaecological conditions

Gynaecology encompasses conditions including:

  • cervical or ovarian cancer
  • endometriosis and fibroids
  • menopause
  • uterine prolapse
  • heavy menstrual bleeding
  • treatment of ovarian cysts.

Symptoms

The symptoms of gynaecological problems differ depending on the specific issue. General symptoms to look out for that could indicate gynaecological problems include:

  • frequent urge to urinate or a burning sensation when urinating
  • abnormal vaginal bleeding or bleeding between periods
  • bleeding after menopause
  • redness, swelling, or itching in the vaginal area
  • sores or lumps in the vaginal area
  • increased or abnormal vaginal discharge.

Diagnosis and tests

The process of diagnosing a gynaecological issue depends on the specific symptoms. A doctor may use a range of tests or scans in order to identify the root of the problem before a treatment plan can be devised.

When to seek treatment

If you experience any of the symptoms listed in the symptoms section, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible.

What happens at a private gynaecology appointment?

During the appointment, the consultant will enquire about the patient’s history. Depending on the circumstances, the patient may need a physical examination. A treatment plan will then be devised and all necessary investigations arranged to suit the patient.

Benefits and success rates of gynaecological operations

Among the benefits of gynaecological surgery are:

  • reduced bleeding
  • absence of soreness, itchiness, and swelling
  • reduced pain
  • improved quality of life and wellbeing.

Risks and complications of gynaecological procedures

While the possibility of experiencing complications following gynaecological surgery is low, as with any surgical procedure, there is a risk. The most common complication following gynaecological procedures is infection. These can include sepsis and pneumonia.

What to expect

Below, we explore what to expect at each stage of the gynaecological treatment process.

Preparing for surgery

Preparation for surgery depends on the procedure the patient is having. In general terms, be sure to have a bath or shower before surgery. Patients should also ensure they:

  • remove any body piercings
  • eat healthy foods such as fruit and vegetables, whole grains, and meat
  • reduce or stop smoking
  • stay well hydrated
  • avoid overexertion
  • get plenty of rest.

Unless advised otherwise, patients should continue to take their regular medications (if applicable). Patients should arrange post-surgery help around the house and with chores. This can be from friends and family.

During the procedure

The type of procedure will determine whether the patient has local, general, or no anaesthetic at all. Under general anaesthetic and deep sedation, the patient is not aware of the procedure taking place. Under a local anaesthesia or without any anaesthesia at all, the surgeon usually takes the patient through the procedure (if they wish to be informed). The assistant or a member of the theatre team will be on hand to offer support throughout the surgery.

Recovery

After surgery, the patient is taken to the Post-Anaesthesia Care Unit (PACU). The nursing team monitors their vital signs (temperature, pulse, respiratory rate, alertness, pain or discomfort) and administers any medications that are required. Day case patients are discharged home (if fit for discharge). In-patients are taken to the ward.

After discharge, specific instructions are provided by the surgeon and physiotherapist. These need to be followed carefully to encourage proper recovery. Patients may be advised to stay mobile to prevent DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) and embolism. Patients will likely be told to avoid activities such as heavy lifting in case of prolapse surgery.

Patients recover at different rates, depending on a number of factors. In general, patients should expect to be fully recovered within a few months depending on the type of procedure that was carried out.

Best hospital I have ever been in

This is the best hospital I have ever been in. The care and efficiency were excellent. My operation was conducted by a top class surgeon and anaesthetist who made me feel relaxed and secure. The team in the Kingfisher ward were kind and professional with good bedside manners and sense of humour. There were no delays in the treatment. My stay was made as comfortable as possible and I thank everyone involved. I am now recovering well.
