Private Endometriosis Surgery

Endometriosis happens when tissue that grows on the inside of the uterus grows on the outside of it as well. The misplaced tissue often attaches itself to the ovaries, fallopian tubes, bowel or bladder. It can spread to other organs as well. Just like the lining of the uterus that bleeds every month during menstruation so does the tissue that grows outside the uterus. But because the bleeding happens in areas where there is no easy way of out of the body it causes inflammation and swelling. Women with severe endometriosis may have heavy and painful menstrual cycles and sometimes may also have problems getting pregnant.

Endometriosis can not be cured, but there are options to make you feel better. The non surgical options include pain management, hormone birth control, hormone treatment and other medications.

Surgical options, such as laparoscopy, can be recommended for mild to moderate endometriosis. It is done using a laparoscope, a small lighted viewing instrument to look for signs of endometriosis. The endometriosis implants and scar tissue are removed by cutting (excision) or can be destroyed with a laser beam or electric current. Hysterectomy treats more severe endometriosis.

The wait times for laparoscopy vary depending on the province you live in.  If you were told that the wait is long, and you are unwilling to wait, we can help arrange a private endometriosis surgery. Give us a call to find out the details toll-free 877 344 3544

Private Robotic Hysterectomy

In our last blog, we wrote about private laparoscopic hysterectomy.  Robot-assisted surgery is now coming into wider use for treating conditions like endometriosis, uterine fibroids, uterine bleeding, adenomyosis and others. A robotic hysterectomy is a variation of GYN laparoscopic surgery using special remotely controlled tools. It provides surgeons with special wrist instruments that bend and rotate at far greater precision than the human wrist. This, along with three-dimensional magnified vision, give doctors the ability to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control.

Robot-assisted surgery allows for excellent visualization of the blood vessels, ureters and surrounding tissue.   It provides an improved ability to suture the vagina after removal of the uterus and cervix. Operating through small incisions leave minimal scarring which leads to a faster recovery. Other advantages of robotic hysterectomy over a traditional open surgery are lower infection rates, much faster recovery time, less pain and fewer post-op complications.

All surgeons performing this procedure have to be properly trained.  Health Vantis works with facilities that offer this GYN robotic surgery in a safe, affordable and private manner.  In Canada, only a few places offer it and the wait times for robotic hysterectomy are significant. If you are interested in having this procedure done, contact us to find out more details.  Approximate cost for private robotic hysterectomy can also be given.  We can usually accommodate our clients within 2 weeks, provided they have their medical records and are deemed to be a good candidate for this surgery. If you are considering your hysterectomy options, give us a call toll-free 1 877 344 3544 and get your one-hour complimentary evaluation.

Private Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus and sometimes ovaries. It is one of the most common surgical procedures in Canada.  It’s considered a major surgery.  For many women suffering from painful fibroids, heavy bleeding, or other gynecological problems, it’s a life-changing procedure. Just a few years back there was only one option to surgery- a traditional approach, open surgery with six weeks recovery time.  The advances in technology now allow for less invasive ways, such as laparoscopic and robotic hysterectomies. Today we will highlight laparoscopic hysterectomy.

A laparoscopic hysterectomy is a minimally invasive surgery to remove the uterus with less pain and faster recovery time.  A small incision is made in the belly button and a tiny camera is inserted. The surgeon watches the image from this camera on a TV screen and performs the operative procedure. Two or three other tiny incisions are made in the lower abdomen. Specialized instruments are inserted and used to remove the uterus.

The recovery time is much shorter with this procedure – about 2 weeks. Studies also show that this is a safe procedure, with little complication rates and fewer infection rates that a traditional hysterectomy as it requires less cutting and less time spent in the hospital. It is an outpatient procedure and requires no stay at the hospital.

A surgeon has to have the proper training to perform this procedure. The waitlists for laparoscopic hysterectomy average from 5-6 months to over a year, depending on which province you reside in. If you are interested in getting this done sooner in a safe, affordable and private manner we can help. We can set you up for a private laparoscopy hysterectomy surgery in 2 weeks, provided you have your medical records and are a fit for this type of surgery.

Private Hysterectomy: Laparoscopic and Robotic Options

Private Hysterectomy: Laparoscopic and Robotic Options

Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove a uterus. There can be many reasons for a woman to undergo a hysterectomy. Some of those are severe pains and heavy bleeding from uterine fibroids, endometriosis or adenomyosis, uterine prolapse, cancer and others. The surgery can be done through the vagina or abdomen. In Canada, the wait times for non-urgent hysterectomy can be long. While waiting you may not have the quality of life you desire. Private hysterectomy can address the issue and give you an ability to stop pains and bleeding much sooner than the current system allows.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

It is also called keyhole hysterectomy as the incisions in the abdomen are very small, about keyhole size. The outcomes favour laparoscopic hysterectomy over abdominal hysterectomy because the return to normal activities is much quicker, by over 15 days.  The stay in the hospital is much shorter (usually one day) and the possibility of an infection is much lower.

Robotic Hysterectomy

During a robotic-assisted hysterectomy, the surgeon uses a computer to control the surgical instruments. Only 5 quarter-inch small incisions are made in your abdomen. Through these incisions, the doctor will insert the robot’s camera and slender surgical instruments. The superior visualization and precision robotic guidance allow for better overall outcomes for the procedure.

Health Vantis works with surgical facilities that offer both of these types of surgeries.  We are able to arrange your private hysterectomy within 7 days. Don’t wait in pain or with the inconvenience of continuous bleeding.  Contact us for more information and cost for a private hysterectomy at 877-344-3544!
