Dr G Specialises in Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery (Keyhole Surgery), Hysteroscopy, and Urogynecology

Melbourne Gynaecology is a gynaecologist practice that specialises in women's urinary incontinence & vaginal prolapse and advanced laparoscopic surgery (minimal invasive surgery) also known as key hole surgery. 


Our specialist Dr G also implements Rapid recovery gynaecological Surgery (RRGS) program which reduces surgical stress and complications as well as enhanced recovery from major surgery. he has a strong belief that women should avoid having open surgery as much as possible. 


Dr G’s experience as a gynaecologist and surgeon spans a wide range of complex surgeries, which has earned him the respect of his colleagues. His areas of expertise with keyhole surgery include:

  • Laparoscopic Hysterectomy (including Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy and Laparoscopic Supra-Cervical Hysterectomy) 
  • Laparoscopy and vaginal approach for Vaginal Prolapse (and related pelvic prolapse surgeries) including Mesh reconstructive surgery. 
  • Latest minimal invasive sling procedure for Stress Urinary Incontinence 
  • Laparoscopy surgery for Uterine Fibroids (including Laparoscopic and Hysteroscopic Myomectomy) 
  • Laparoscopy for Advanced Endometriosis

 

Due to his expertise with keyhole surgery and his adherence to the RRGS approach, the period of hospitalization experienced by the women he treats is extremely brief. In fact, most women are discharged within 24 hours of their surgery. They are generally able to return to their usual routines and resume normal functioning within days of their procedure. This includes activities like driving. The measures he adopts significantly reduce the post-operative complications that typically follow surgery, such as Deep Vein Thrombosis, Muscle Atrophy, and Infection.
