Gynaecology

Gynaecology

Gynaecology is the clinical area focused on the health of the female reproductive system and covers a wide range of different conditions and age groups.

The common problems include issues related to irregular periods, menstrual pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, endometriosis, fibroids, pelvic pain, infertility, or pelvic floor problems causing incontinence or prolapse.

Our team of gynaecologists are well-versed in diagnosing and treating a wide range of medical conditions that affect women. Beginning from problems in pre-puberty to post-menopause, we offer a holistic approach to women's care delivered through a range of Out Patient, Day Care surgery and In Patient services. We aim to offer an efficient and rapid access to the appropriate treatment.

We undertake consultation, investigation and treatment of a wide range of gynaecological conditions including:

  • General gynaecology – including screening for genital cancers, cervical cancer vaccination, etc.
  • Emergency gynaecology round-the-clock – ectopic pregnancy, twisted ovarian cyst, etc.
  • Reproductive medicine services – ovulation induction and intrauterine insemination
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • Urogynaecology

The unit specializes in modern minimally invasive techniques for surgery, enabling a shorter stay in hospital and a quicker recovery to normal activities. Some of the surgeries we offer are:

  • Keyhole surgery: diagnostic hysteroscopy and laparoscopy for infertility, irregular bleeding, bleeding after menopause
  • Operative hysteroscopy for endometrial polyps, uterine abnormalities, submucous fibroids
  • Operative laparoscopy for endometriosis, fibroids (myomectomy) and ovarian cysts
  • Scarless vaginal hysterectomy for abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Vaginal surgeries for prolapse and urinary incontinence
  • Total laparoscopic hysterectomy
  • Abdominal hysterectomy for large abdominal masses and huge fibroids

Many conditions can be addressed through medication and lifestyle changes instead of a surgery. Our main aim is to provide the most up to date care for the complete range of gynaecological problems. Our competent doctors offer counselling to enable women make the right choices.

Urogynaecology Service

Urogynaecology is the emerging speciality of gynaecology that is provided at Stork Home. This service includes the care of women with urinary incontinence, bladder problems like recurrent urine infections, bladder pain and voiding problems. Complex pelvic organ prolapses are dealt with ease and expertise here, including vault prolapse - a known complication following a hysterectomy. Surgeries for management of stress incontinence, cystoscopies, pelvic floor repairs, sacrospinous fixations are all performed in this centre.

Fertility

Investigation and management of infertile couples, form a major portion of our general gynaecology practice. Full time access to pelvic ultrasound scanning provides support to the management of fertility and early pregnancy related issues.

One Stop Clinic

Our gynaecology service offers an initial consultation and diagnostic test in one visit. An ultrasound scan can also be carried out simultaneously if required, enabling treatment plan to be drawn up immediately. We provide a one stop clinic for conditions such as abnormal bleeding wherein scan, consultation and surgical procedures (endometrial biopsy, levonorgestrel IUCD insertion) under local anaesthetic can take place in one Out Patient visit. This reduces the anxiety and inconvenience of multiple hospital visits.

This care is provided by a multi-disciplinary team of specialists who have expert knowledge in their particular field of interest, and includes doctors and nurses who strive to provide the best care in a clean and comfortable environment.

Treating Headaches During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a phase during which you get ready to welcome your little bundle of joy. It is also a time when women undergo physical changes and experience some discomforts. Headache during pregnancy is quite common, especially in the first trimester. Though most frequent in the first and third trimester, pregnancy headache may occur at any time during the gestation period.
