During a laparoscopic procedure 3-4 tiny incisions are performed in the abdomen and specialised instruments and a camera are put through these incisions. The camera sends the images onto a high-definition screen providing clear view and magnification. With this technique can be performed nearly all the gynaecological procedures without surgical wounds, minimal post-operative pain and fast recovery
Hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows the endoscopic surgeon to look at the lining of the uterus. Those procedures are performed with the hysteroscope, a tiny tube which carries a light and a camera. The hysteroscope is inserted into the womb through the vagina and the cervix. Hysteroscopy is performed for Diagnostic or Therapeutic indications (removing a polyp, a fibroid or clearing up adhesions)
Reproductive medicine helps in prevention, diagnosis and management of fertility problems. The main goal of reproductive medicine is to improve and maintain the reproductive health, giving the chance to couples have children. In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is a method of fertilization outside the uterus, assisting couples with certain fertility problems to have a healthy baby
After a positive pregnancy test, until the labour day and the post-partum period there are many questions that arise in a couple’s life. Fetal development week by week, pregnancy health, labour and breastfeeding are only a few of your worries during this journey. Dr. Marinakis and his team support this effort to develop the confidence to make pregnancy and labour a pleasant and natural journey
