Obstetrics & Gynaecology - Medway Hospitals

Obstetrics & Gynaecology

Obstetrics deals with medical care during pregnancy, labour, delivery and the immediate post delivery period of both the mother and the newborn. Our obstetricians ensure that the mother and baby receive the best possible antenatal care to ensure that the delivery happens without complications and since we are equipped with a neonatal unit, the newborn receives expert care as well.

Gynecology diagnoses and treats diseases of the reproductive organs including cancer of the ovaries, uterus, cervix, vagina and fallopian tubes. A gynecologist also treats prolapse of the pelvic organs which usually presents in postmenopausal women with weakened pelvic muscles that cannot support the uterus or bladder properly.

Irregular and painful menstruation and other diseases pertaining to menopause may require surgical treatment as would disorders of the uterus like fibroids, etc. Our experienced gynecologists handle most of the surgical problems by laparoscopic surgery which leave only a minimal scar. Common surgical gynaecological procedures done at Medway are tubal ligation, laparoscopic hysterectomy and Salpingo oophorectomy.
