Obstetrics And Gynaecology 1

At Gleneagles Hospitals, we specialize in diagnosing and treating a wide range of gynaecological conditions. Our team of experienced specialists is dedicated to providing comprehensive care tailored to each patient’s needs. Below is a detailed overview of the conditions we treat:

Abnormal Vaginal Discharge

Abnormal vaginal discharge can indicate infections or other health issues. Our specialists conduct thorough evaluations to identify the underlying cause, which may include infections, hormonal imbalances, or other gynaecological conditions.


Adenomyosis occurs when the inner lining of the uterus grows into the muscular wall. This can cause painful periods and heavy bleeding. We offer a range of treatments, including medication and minimally invasive surgery, to alleviate symptoms.


Amenorrhea refers to the absence of menstruation. It can be caused by hormonal imbalances, excessive exercise, stress, or underlying medical conditions. Our team conducts comprehensive evaluations to determine the cause and develop an appropriate treatment plan.

Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer is a serious condition that can develop from precancerous changes in the cervix. Regular screenings, such as Pap smears, are crucial for early detection. We provide advanced treatment options, including surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, tailored to each stage of the disease.


Dyspareunia is the medical term for pain during intercourse. This condition can result from various factors, including infections, hormonal changes, or psychological issues. Our specialists offer diagnostic evaluations and treatment options to help manage and resolve this discomfort.

Endometrial Cancers

Endometrial cancer affects the lining of the uterus and often presents with abnormal bleeding. Our comprehensive care includes early detection strategies, surgical options, and adjuvant therapies to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.


Endometriosis occurs when tissue similar to the uterine lining grows outside the uterus, causing pain and fertility issues. We provide a range of treatments, including pain management, hormonal therapy, and surgical options, to help manage symptoms effectively.


Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths that can cause heavy bleeding, pain, and other symptoms. We offer various treatment options, including watchful waiting, medication, myomectomy, and robotic hysterectomy, depending on the size and location of the fibroids.


Menopause is a natural transition in a woman's life, marked by the end of menstrual cycles. It can cause various symptoms, including hot flashes, mood swings, and sleep disturbances. Our specialists provide supportive care and treatment options to help manage these symptoms effectively.


Menorrhagia refers to excessively heavy menstrual bleeding, which can lead to anemia and decreased quality of life. We conduct thorough evaluations to identify the cause and offer various treatment options, including medication and surgical procedures.

Menstrual Disorders

Menstrual disorders encompass a range of conditions affecting the menstrual cycle, including irregular periods, heavy bleeding, and painful menstruation. Our team offers diagnostic testing and personalized treatment plans to restore normalcy.

Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer can be difficult to detect in its early stages. Symptoms may include abdominal swelling and discomfort. Our specialists provide comprehensive care, including screening, surgery, and chemotherapy, ensuring a personalized approach to treatment.

Ovarian Cysts

Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs on the ovaries that can cause pain and other symptoms. While many cysts are benign and resolve on their own, our team monitors and treats larger or symptomatic cysts through various methods, including surgery.

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)

PID is an infection of the female reproductive organs, often caused by sexually transmitted infections. It can lead to serious complications if left untreated. We provide effective treatments, including antibiotics and, in severe cases, surgical intervention.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when pelvic organs descend due to weakened pelvic support tissues. Symptoms may include pelvic pressure and urinary issues. Our specialists offer both non-surgical and surgical treatment options, including pelvic floor therapy and reconstructive surgery.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS is a hormonal disorder characterized by irregular periods, excess androgen, and polycystic ovaries. Our approach focuses on managing symptoms through lifestyle changes, medication, and fertility treatments when necessary.


A rectocele is a condition where the rectum bulges into the vagina due to weakened pelvic muscles. Symptoms can include difficulty with bowel movements. Treatment options may include pelvic floor exercises, pessaries, or surgical repair.

Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine, which can result from various factors, including childbirth and menopause. We offer comprehensive evaluations and treatment options, including pelvic floor therapy and surgical procedures.

Urinary Tract Infections (UTI)

UTIs are common infections that can cause discomfort and urinary issues. Our specialists provide prompt diagnosis and effective treatment to alleviate symptoms and prevent recurrence.

Vaginal Bleeding

Abnormal vaginal bleeding can indicate various health concerns, from hormonal imbalances to more serious conditions. Our team conducts thorough evaluations to determine the cause and recommend appropriate treatment options.


Vaginitis refers to inflammation of the vagina, often caused by infections or irritants. Symptoms may include itching, discharge, and discomfort. We provide comprehensive care to diagnose and treat the underlying causes effectively.

Frequently Performed Procedures and Investigations in Gynaecology at Gleneagles Hospitals

At Gleneagles Hospitals, we offer a comprehensive range of gynaecological procedures and investigations to ensure accurate diagnosis and effective treatment for our patients. Our team of experienced specialists utilizes the latest technology and techniques to provide high-quality care. Here’s an in-depth look at some of the frequently performed procedures and investigations:

Abdominal Hysterectomy

An abdominal hysterectomy involves the surgical removal of the uterus through an incision in the abdomen. This procedure is typically recommended for conditions such as fibroids, endometriosis, or cancer. Our specialists provide thorough pre-operative assessments and personalized care throughout the recovery process.


Amniocentesis is a prenatal diagnostic procedure used to assess genetic conditions in the fetus. A thin needle is inserted through the abdominal wall to collect amniotic fluid. This procedure is usually performed between 15 and 20 weeks of pregnancy and carries some risks, which our team discusses in detail with expecting mothers.

Caesarean Delivery

A caesarean delivery, or C-section, is a surgical procedure to deliver a baby through incisions made in the abdomen and uterus. This method may be necessary for various reasons, including complications during labor or a prior C-section. Our obstetricians ensure a safe and supportive environment for both mother and baby during the procedure.


Colposcopy is a diagnostic procedure used to examine the cervix, vagina, and vulva for signs of disease. It is often recommended after an abnormal Pap smear. Using a colposcope, our specialists can identify areas that require further evaluation or biopsy, ensuring timely diagnosis and treatment.


Cryotherapy is a treatment that involves freezing abnormal tissue, often used for precancerous lesions on the cervix. This minimally invasive procedure is effective in destroying targeted cells while preserving surrounding healthy tissue.

Dilation and Curettage (D & C)

Dilation and curettage (D & C) is a surgical procedure that involves dilating the cervix and scraping the uterine lining. This procedure may be performed for diagnostic reasons, such as abnormal bleeding or miscarriage management, as well as for therapeutic reasons to remove tissue.

Family Planning

Our family planning services include counseling and various contraceptive options, such as hormonal methods, intrauterine devices (IUDs), and permanent solutions like tubal ligation. We work with patients to determine the most suitable options based on their individual health needs and family goals.

IVF (In Vitro Fertilization)

IVF is an assisted reproductive technology used to help couples facing infertility. This complex procedure involves retrieving eggs from the ovaries, fertilizing them with sperm in a lab, and transferring the resulting embryos into the uterus. Our fertility specialists guide patients through each step of the process.


A mammogram is a critical imaging test used to screen for breast cancer. Our facilities offer state-of-the-art mammography services to ensure accurate imaging and prompt results. Early detection is key to effective treatment, and we emphasize the importance of regular screenings.


A mastectomy is a surgical procedure to remove one or both breasts, often performed as a treatment for breast cancer. Our team provides comprehensive care, including pre-operative counseling, surgical options, and post-operative support for recovery.


Myomectomy is the surgical removal of fibroids from the uterus, aimed at preserving the uterus for future pregnancies. This procedure can be performed through various methods, including abdominal, laparoscopic, or hysteroscopic approaches, depending on the size and location of the fibroids.

Pap Smear

A Pap smear is a routine screening test to detect precancerous changes in the cervix. It involves collecting cells from the cervix for laboratory analysis. Regular Pap smears are essential for early detection and prevention of cervical cancer, and our team emphasizes the importance of adhering to screening guidelines.

Robotic Hysterectomy

Robotic hysterectomy is a minimally invasive surgical option that uses robotic-assisted technology for greater precision and control. This approach often results in reduced recovery time and less postoperative pain compared to traditional methods. Our specialists are trained in advanced robotic techniques to enhance surgical outcomes.

Robotic Myomectomy

Similar to robotic hysterectomy, robotic myomectomy uses robotic assistance to remove fibroids while preserving the uterus. This minimally invasive approach allows for precise removal with minimal scarring and quicker recovery, making it an ideal choice for many patients.


A tubectomy, or tubal ligation, is a surgical procedure that permanently prevents pregnancy by blocking or sealing the fallopian tubes. Our team provides thorough counseling on the procedure and its implications for future family planning.

Vaginal Delivery

Vaginal delivery is the natural process of giving birth through the vagina. Our obstetricians support mothers throughout labor, providing pain management options and continuous care to ensure a safe delivery for both mother and child.

Vaginal Hysterectomy

Vaginal hysterectomy involves the removal of the uterus through the vaginal canal, which typically results in less postoperative pain and quicker recovery compared to abdominal hysterectomy. This procedure is often indicated for conditions such as fibroids or pelvic organ prolapse.
