ADVANCED LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY
Dr Siva is able to perform Level 5 advanced laparoscopic surgery for conditions such as pelvic adhesions, fibroids, endometriosis (laparoscopic excision of endometriosis), adenomyosis, chronic pelvic pain, ovarian cysts (laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy, laparoscopic oophorectomy) and heavy periods. He offers Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy (TLH or Key Hole Hysterectomy) which usually requires a single night stay in the St. Andrew's Ipswich Private Hospital. Laparoscopic surgery is associated with less pain and quick recovery when compared to open abdominal surgery.
Dr Siva also offers Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS). SILS is a special form of laparoscopy that uses one incision in the abdomen through which all the instruments required for the operation are placed. The main advantages of SILS are the improved cosmetic appearance after surgery by avoiding several scars near the bikini line, a reduction in pain following surgery and the possibility of a slightly faster recovery than with traditional laparoscopic techniques. Most of Laparoscopic surgery in Gynaecology could be performed as SILS.
