In some cases an operation may be needed. Sanjay has a national and international reputation as a skilled gynaecological surgeon, particularly in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery.
The benefit of keyhole surgery over conventional open surgery include:
- smaller, more cosmetically acceptable cuts on the abdomen
- shorter stay in hospital
- reduced risk of skin infection
- reduced risk of blood clots in legs (DVT) and lungs (PE)
- less pain
- quicker return to work / exercise
- overall quicker recovery
This compares to conventional open surgery, where a large cut is made on the abdomen to perform the operation. This large cut gives more pain and slows down recovery. Laparoscopic procedures are now the preferred type of surgery for most conditions.
