Keyhole surgery has revolutionized the way we treat common women’s health conditions, and we are passionate about bringing this technique to those that need it. Over the last decade, there have been major advances in gynaecological laparoscopic surgery.
This approach to surgery allows for a very close and magnified examination of affected tissue and allows very meticulous and precise surgery.. This in turn allows for a clearer diagnosis, and in many cases treatment can occur at the same time as diagnosis. Women with all levels of endometriosis and infertility are particularly suited to keyhole surgery as this minimally invasive technique often allows faster recovery from surgery, and can immediately improve the chances of falling pregnant.
Dr Raymond is an expert in this field. He routinely attends advanced training in the area of keyhole surgery and presents regularly on this subject to GPs, other specialists and at local and international meetings.
WHAT CAN KEYHOLE SURGERY DIAGNOSE AND TREAT?
Dr Steve Raymond conducts regular training and is at the forefront of this procedure. He is highly regarded as an experienced, advanced Laparoscopic Surgeon, one of the few in Newcastle to offer this surgery both for infertility and general gynaecological conditions. He regularly attends Australian and International conferences and has presented the results of his surgery locally, nationally and overseas.
Keyhole surgery for women can often require multidisciplinary approaches involving other specialists such as urologists and bowel surgeons. Dr Steve Raymond has established strong relationships with highly competent colleagues and regularly consults with them in the event that a multidisciplinary approach is needed.
