Even if you enjoy watching hospital dramas played on TV, you cannot help but feel nervous about what happens inside the operating room.
When it comes to the need for surgical intervention, the experience can be that worrisome. What you feel depends mainly on the approach and technology used to treat your specific illness or injury.
Surgery is probably as old as humanity. Over time, it has come a long way to become a safe and reliable tool, hardly recognisable from the risky `practice` it once was. With the substantial scientific advancements in the fields of infection control, surgical skill, surgical technology, pain-control and anaesthesia, surgery became a fundamental component of healthcare.
And over the past few decades, it is undisputedly clear that significant advances in technology have revolutionised surgical care, which is evolving swiftly nowadays following the introduction and expansion of minimal-access surgery. The ultimate goals behind this are the improvement of surgical precision, the reduction of the adverse impact of surgery on patients, and the enhancement of patient experience and quality of life.
No matter what operation is performed, the minimal-access surgical approach is associated with a myriad of benefits that include the need for few tiny incisions (versus a large incision in traditional surgery), less trauma to the tissues, less bleeding, less scarring, less postoperative pain, reduced hospital stay, and faster recovery. In many cases, minimal-access surgery also offers a higher accuracy rate compared to traditional open surgery.
Today`s Gynaecology is no exception! There have been significant advancements towards minimal-access surgery, with the novel and innovative techniques both revolutionising and transforming the surgical approaches in the gynaecological field forever. In expert hands, minimal-access surgery has become the standard treatment for many benign and malignant gynaecological conditions.

Our primary objective is to provide you with a more effective alternative to conventional open surgery. If you need a second opinion on treatment options for any gynaecological condition, Dr. Devassy`s priorities are your health, safety, and well-being. You will get all the clear answers you deserve, with accuracy you can trust. Our success can be straightforwardly analysed with the fact that we receive referrals from other external gynaecologists for complex cases that would otherwise be performed through the traditional open surgery.
Within a compassionate and caring environment, we treat you as an individual and our care is designed with feminine welfare in mind. Our consultation process involves a systematic assessment of your gynaecological complaint, and a thorough discussion of the treatment options, both innovative and traditional. You are an integral member of our elite care team trained by Dr. Devassy, and together, we will determine the best treatment options that are tailored to your personal needs and lifestyle.
Whenever mentioned, the word `surgery` often summons up thoughts of distressing pain, slow recovery, and extended interruption of enjoyable life activities. While traditional open surgery that involves big incisions was once the only option for many gynaecological disorders, Dr. Rajesh Devassy and the Dubai London Clinic and Speciality Hospital offer several innovative minimal-access surgical solutions that can help you make a safer and faster recovery. Our objective is clear - we want you to feel better!
