Melbourne, Australia – Dec. 6, 2018 – A woman’s reproductive health and comfort can be compromised by a wide variety of conditions that required the services of award-winning gynaecologist and obstetrician, Dr. Kent Kuswanto. He specializes in complex gynaecological pelvic surgery and minimally invasive gynaecology surgery.

From high-risk pregnancies and hysterectomies to heavy periods, ovarian cysts and fibroids, the gynaecologist Melbourne addresses the extensive array of conditions and difficulties that can affect women of all ages. Treatments are minimally invasive, enabling patients to return to their regular activities and schedules with minimal down time. He’s skilled in robotic gynaecological surgical technologies that include da Vinci robotic surgery.

Heavy or irregular periods are a common problem for many women, causing significant physical, emotionally and social problems. Every woman’s menstrual flow is different, but it’s a problem when periods are painful or disrupt normal activities. Heavy periods can result from multiple causes ranging from fibroids, polyps and endometriosis to infections, clotting disorders and cancer. Solutions will depend on the cause, but can include medications, dietary supplements or surgery.

Ovarian cysts are common in pre-menopausal women, but can occur at any time. They typically cause no symptoms and are discovered as part of a routine scan for something else entirely. When cysts do cause problems, it often takes the form of irregular periods or pelvic pain, abdominal bloating, pressure on the bowel or bladder, or an ache in the lower back.

In the case of ovarian cysts, most are non-cancerous and resolve themselves over time without treatment. Larger growths must be removed promptly to avoid twisting of the ovaries and laparoscopic surgery provides a minimally invasive solution.

The gynaecologist Melbourne also treats fibroids. Up to 40 percent of all women have fibroids, but they’re typically small and cause few symptoms. They can occur at any age, but most are seen in post-menopausal women and associated with pain and abnormal bleeding. Fibroids can form inside, outside and within the uterus.

Fibroids that aren’t causing pain, disrupting fertility or causing bleeding don’t require treatment. When treatment is needed, some fibroids can be addressed with hormonal medications to reduce their size. They can also be treated with a procedure to block blood flow to the fibroids or with minimally invasive surgery to remove them completely. The treatment will depend on the patient’s age and individual situation.

Each woman’s situation is different and the type of treatment provided will depend on the medical condition, severity, age and fertility goals, and personal preferences. The gynaecologist Melbourne specializes in all types of treatments and surgeries for the health and comfort of patients.
