Scan reports are discussed with patients following their scans and a copy of each report is sent to the referring doctor at the same time.  See Details

Colposcopy & Vulvoscopy

 

This service is provided to evaluate abnormalities of cervical (pap) smears, cervical abnormalities, disorders of the external genital organs including pain, discomfort, irritation, itching, wart formation, persistent & recurrent vaginal infections and skin discolouration. Further treatment of these conditions and follow up is decided and performed appropriately and individually depending on the findings of their investigations. 

Recurrent Miscarriage

 

Cases with recurrent miscarriage needs specialised investigations & assessment to exclude underlying abnormalities. We offer investigations to exclude blood clotting disorders such as Thrombophilia and other medical conditions which could be an underlying cause of the miscarriage in these cases. We offer ultrasound & hormonal profile assessment to exclude polycystic ovarian syndrome and luteal phase insufficiency as well as investigations of the couple (future parents) to exclude chromosomal conditions. Based on the investigation results we offer the appropriate treatment and early ultrasound follow up for pregnancy assessment to support the parents until the pregnancy is well established. 

Fertility

 

Our services for fertility management include timed hormonal profiles in relation to the phase of the menstrual cycle to exclude ovarian disorders. We perform ultrasound assessment of uterus to exclude congenital abnormalities of the uterine cavity and ensure adequate response of the lining of the womb to the ovarian hormones. Ovarian ultrasound is designed in these cases to assess ovarian appearance, look for evidence of ovulation and perform follicle tracking when required. Induction of ovulation if offered when there is evidence of absence of ovulation and laparoscopic assessment to exclude endometriosis and check tubal patency (opened/unblocked tubes) is undertaken as required. Semen analysis for the partner is always performed at the early stages of the investigations to exclude male type subfertility. We have a high rate of success in the majority of cases who present with difficulty to achieve pregnancy through the above measures, however, cases which require IVF will be referred as appropriate to the selected IVF centres.

Menopause & Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

 

This service is provided to evaluate and manage women with any issues related to menopause including hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal dryness and sleep disturbance and osteoporosis. Women are counselled about the pros and cons of Menopause Hormone Therapy (MHT) commonly known as Hormone Replacement Therapy or HRT. If MHT/HRT is required, treatment is individualized and tailored to the woman's need and the best option in each case is prescribed. Complex cases with contraindications to the use of HRT are offered the best suitable alternatives to alleviate their symptoms.
