We all know how important it is to look after our health and to treat medical problems as soon as they arise. This is especially true for women, because gynecological issues are often uncomfortable, taboo and – in some cases – dangerous.
Medicover Hospital offers a wide range of diagnostic tests and treatments at the hands of highly qualified doctors with years (or even decades) of professional experience in the field of gynecology.
If you have been dealing with acute or chronic symptoms, we suggest you book an appointment with one of our gynecologists without much delay. Your doctor will aim to find the root cause of your problems and set up a personalized treatment plan for you which might consist in taking medication for a while, undergoing surgery, or other.
Medicover Hospital uses state-of-the-art technology and high quality instruments both in diagnostics and in surgery. Most surgical procedures carried out at our facility are available in the form of outpatient surgery, making the whole procedure more comfortable and time-effective.
If you already have medical reports or test results from another hospital regarding your problem, please bring them with you for your initial appointment, as they can help your doctor evaluate your condition and save you time and money.
At your first appointment you will need to undergo a consultation with your gynecologist as well as a physical examination. During this examination your doctor can either identify the cause of your complaints right away or you will be referred for further tests.
Once the diagnosis has been established, your doctor will recommend a treatment plan.
If you need surgery, it will be your gynecologist’s task to evaluate whether your general health allows the operation to be carried out safely. You’ll likely need to undergo a range of tests such as bloodwork, ECG and chest X-ray. In possession of the results your gynecological surgeon will consult an anesthesiologist to discuss the details of your anesthesia.
Your doctor will give you detailed instructions regarding pre-operative restrictions (fasting or diet, medications to take and not to take etc.) He will also explain the details of the procedure, potential risks and benefits and anaesthesiawith you before you make a final decision. He will make sure to answer any questions you may have about the operation.
Most of treatments available at our hospital can be carried out laparoscopically meaning that the doctor only makes a tiny incision on your abdomen, causing much less bleeding and scarring than in the case of open surgery. This makes surgery minimally invasive and recovery shorter, more comfortable, and the occurrence of complications much less likely.
Laparoscopic surgery puts a smaller burden on your body, and you will feel very little pain compared to those undergoing open surgery.
Unfortunately in sometimes laparoscopic surgery is not an option. In these cases doctors opt for traditional abdominal surgery.
Rarely – in spite of the thorough examination prior to treatment – during surgery doctors find lesions in your abdomen which can’t be treated laparoscopically. When this happens surgeons perform a diagnostic laparoscopy and examine every single abnormal growth in detail. After surgery they share their findings with you along with information regarding further treatment.
