In Obstetrics and Gynaecology (O&G), Laparoscopy is also suitable for conditions involving the uterus (myomectomy, hysteroscopy and hysterectomy) and ovaries (cystectomy).
Fibroids are benign tumours of the uterus. They are the most common gynaecological tumours in women, affecting at least 20 percent of women above 35 years old. Uterine fibroids can affect quality of life. They can cause pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, frequent urination, constipation and a distended stomach.
Stress urinary incontinence is the uncontrollable leakage of urine when you cough, sneeze, laugh, run or lift something heavy. It is caused by weak pelvic floor muscles aggravated by pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause. It is the most common form of urinary incontinence in women with more than 10 – 15% of women suffering from it. Women with this condition will not only be affected socially, financially, physically and emotionally, their work and family life may also suffer as a result.
