Using minimally invasive abdominal endoscopic techniques, such as the well-known Laparoscopy (exploration of the abdominal cavity and its organs using small telescopes) or Hysteroscopy (exploration of the uterine cavity), we are able to diagnose with maximum accuracy the different illnesses that appear in female internal organs (uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries and bladder) and also operate on them to correct these alterations, as is done in conventional surgery (laparotomy), without the need for hospitalization.
Operations are through small incisions in the skin, the majority of less than 1 cm, in areas that are generally not highly visible. So these operations are always 100% day surgery, with very short periods of disability and periods off work of less than seven days. The cosmetic results are excellent.
Laparoscopy is the surgical treatment of abdominal organs by means of one intraumbilical incision and another two or three above the pubis, just under the pubic hair. It is used to operate on illnesses of the walls and surface of the uterus, of the fallopian tubes, the ovaries. Most common in the uterus are the myomas or fibroids. In some cases, when the illness involved allows, they can be recovered using endoscopic surgical techniques or, if they are completely affected and do not carry out their function, they can be removed. Most ovarian cysts, especially those caused by endometriosis, can be operated on only using these techniques, thus saving ovarian tissue, if necessary however, the ovaries can be totally removed, Versys Clinics Human Reproduction Institute is equipped with a CO2 laser surgical tool, which makes the surgeons able to operate with the most modern technique (specially when endometrioisis is present, and vaporisation is needed).
Hysteroscopy is the exploration of the uterus within its cavity and is approached through the vagina, through the neck of the uterus. No cuts in the skin are necessary. Only in certain cases is the operation carried out in the operating room under a general anaesthetic.
The commonest operations using hysteroscopy are the removal of polyps, myomas and fibroids. Malformations such as uterine walls or septum, that previously required serious abdominal surgery, are easily operated on. This is the best method for treating intrauterine adhesions.
It is a perfect technique for the location and removal of intrauterine foreign bodies, the evaluation of the intrauterine cavity in cases where there is a failure in the implantation of embryos during assisted reproduction, an abortion or recurrent loss, and for unblocking the uterine tubal ostia blocked by condensed mucus. It is also ideal for the evaluation of uterine haemorrhage and the taking of directed biopsies, especially in women with the menopause.
