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.
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.
