Minimal Access Surgery (Keyhole Surgery):
Keyhole Surgery, that is Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy, has revolutionised Gynaecological surgery. It enables women to have most complex procedures as day cases, leaving very small scars on the tummy (1 cm or less in most cases) that are almost invisible. In most cases she does not have to stay in a hospital even for a night. The overall recovery is much quicker and the pain (and therefore the need for pain killers) is much less.
