3.  Theaters and Wards:

Medfem Clinic is a center for advanced gynaecologic surgery. We provide the highest quality of surgical care to our patients. We use the latest techniques to treat many of the gynecologic problems that women experience, and at the same time constantly work on developing new and innovative surgical techniques.

Most of the gynaecological surgical procedures performed in Medfem Clinic are done in our state of the art theaters fully equipped and specially designed for endoscopic surgery. Our doctors are experts in the field of minimally invasive surgery.

Minimally invasive surgery has many benefits compared to traditional procedures: patients can usually return to work sooner, experience less pain after surgery, have less scar tissue formation, and have smaller skin incisions.

The conditions most commonly treated using laparoscopic surgery are:

¦        heavy periods

¦        endometriosis

¦        pelvic pain

¦        infertility

¦        fibroid tumors

¦        incontinence

¦        pelvic organ prolapse/relaxation

¦        ovarian masses/cysts

 The doctors at Medfem Clinic have the experience and expertise to treat a wide range of gynecologic problems while improving the quality of life for patients. Doctors work with each patient to develop an individualized treatment plan, considering all treatment options, including both non-surgical and surgical. Some of the procedures which are now performed exclusively using minimally invasive laparoscopic or hysteroscopic approaches include:

     ¦        laparoscopic assisted vaginal (removal of the uterus and cervix) or supracervical (removal of  the uterus only) hysterectomy

¦        removal of endometriosis

¦        ovarian cystectomy (removing ovarian cysts without removing the ovary)

¦        lysis of adhesions (removing scar tissue within abdomen to reduce pain and improve fertility)

¦        laparoscopic/hysteroscopic myomectomy (removal of fibroid tumors without a hysterectomy)

¦        pelvic reconstruction for incontinence and prolapse/relaxation

¦        laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery for infertility

¦        operative hysteroscopy ( correction of problems in uterine cavity without incisions )

Thanks to the minimally invasive nature of our surgery, patients are discharged the same day. Our dedicated nurses and their assistants are making sure that every patient recovers fully before leaving the hospital.

In cases of laparoscopic hysterectomies patients are kept over night in our special ward where they are cared for by specialist nursing staff. Overnight stay is also necessary in cases where open surgery (laparotomy) was done, as in case of myomectomy (removal of large and multiple uterine fibroid tumours with the aim of preserving the uterus for fertility, for which our doctors are highly experienced ).

Medfem Clinic is well known with patients in South Africa, and there are more and more patients from sub-saharan africa finding our expertise and care invaluable for treatment of their problems. To make things easier for our francophone patients, our doctor is proficient in French and we have a Portuguese translators available for our portuguese speaking patients.

Progressive treatment and compassionate care are a way of life at Medfem Clinic.
