- Dr V M Joshi
Case Presentation -
Surgery without pain, scar, blood loss and no hospital stay! The treatment of this era.
Inability to conceive is a problem which causes significant social and marital disharmony. One of the treatable causes of infertility is presence of a uterine septum. In a layman’s term it can be understood as presence of dividing bridge in the uterine cavity which distorts the uterine cavity and prevents implantation of the embryo leading to repeated abortions.
Couple of years back this problem required a major surgery and a huge abdominal incision. Still in rural areas women undergo surgery with huge incisions increasing morbidity and delay recovery because of lack of proper hospitals and equipments.
In BKL Walawalkar hospital recently women underwent hysteroscopic resection of the septum. Which means the bridge in the uterine cavity was removed telescopically using specialized instruments. Patients were discharged on the same day with no scars, no pain, no blood loss and immediate recovery.
The Unit of Minimally Invasive surgery is functioning regularly in Walawalkar hospital so that even the poorest patients of Konkan region receive the most advanced treatment existing in today’s world with minimal expenses.
