Gynecology

What is Gynecology?
Gynecologists deal with disorders of the female reproductive system. Some surgical procedures performed at Delbrook Surgical Centre are D&C for uterine bleeding and Pubovaginal Slings for stress incontinence.

Dilatation and Curettage (D&C)

Cervical dilatation and uterine curettage is a surgery performed to diagnose and treat abnormal bleeding of the uterus. A device called a speculum is inserted, the cervix is dilated to allow a curette (scoop-shaped instrument) to pass through and tissue from the lining of the uterus is removed.

Pubovaginal Sling

Both Gynecologists and Urologists perform surgery for stress incontinence. Pubovaginal slings are provided by a few different companies, check with your surgeon to see which procedure and product he prefers.
