Gynaecology | gyno problems – Glengarry Private Hospital
Private Perth gynaecologist, Dr Mark Sillender
A gynaecologist (or gyno) is a specialist physician/surgeon who can manage gynaecological (gyno) problems using a variety of medical, surgical (often keyhole surgery) and other techniques, aiming for optimal results.
To make a gyno appointment with us at Glengarry Private Hospital, Perth, give us a call. If you have private medical insurance you will need a GP’s referral for medicare rebates & (if you’re admitted to hospital or have gyno surgery) wish to have the hospital’s costs covered. If you don’t have private medical insurance, you’ll still need a GP referral to access Medicare rebates for your gynae consultations & treatment. If you have hospital treatment, non-insured patients have to cover the Glengarry hospital fees out of pocket. This is an option for non-insured patients who want to avoid public waiting times, or choose their Perth gynaecologist.
We provide diagnosis & treatments to help deal with the following gyno problems, among others. Call us at our rooms opposite Glengarry Private Hospital, Perth, and book an appointment with us today.
Heavy periods are common at the start of reproductive life in a woman’s teens and forties. Gynaecologists have many different options to deal with this heavy bleeding. Irregular bleeding is also common in teens & forties. Painful periods can be a problem at any time and can be associated with heavy periods and/or general pelvic pain.
Pelvic pain – both acute & chronic
Pelvic pain is common and has a large number of potential causes. It’s common for women to have their diagnosis delayed for many years as they think their pain is “normal”, and do not get referral to a gynaecologist. The classic gynaecological cause for pain is endometriosis. A laparoscopy at Glengarry Hospital, Perth is often needed to both diagnose & treat this (sometimes) difficult to manage condition.
Ovarian cysts are caused by several different processes, that can be divided broadly into tumours, endometriosis-filled cysts, and, most commonly cysts caused by disorders of ovulation (functional cysts). Gynaecological care can be needed if resolution doesn’t occur.
We deal with all types of abnormal PAP & Thinprep smears, using colposcopy in our Glengarry Hospital, Perth rooms to assess the extent of the problem.
Bladder problems are common, especially later in life. Many are the consequence of pregnancy & vaginal birth. Compensation using other muscles can occur when younger, but as the body ages this becomes less possible, and symptoms occur, which require a gynaecologist to diagnose & treat.
