Minimally invasive gynaecology, approaching gynaecological surgery laparoscopically (using key hole surgery), vaginally or hysteroscopically has advantages of improved cosmetic outcome, reduced pain and shorter recovery. Advances in surgical technology have enabled most gynaecological surgery to be performed using the minimally invasive gynaecology approach. Advanced laparoscopic surgeons such as Dr Stephen Lee is trained to perform total and subtotal laparoscopic hysterectomy, laparoscopic and hysteroscopic myomectomy, laparoscopic treatment of severe endometriosis, laparoscopic treatment of Caesarean scar and corneal ectopic pregnancy, laparoscopic tubal re-anastomosis, laparoscopic treatment of stress incontinence and uterovaginal prolapse, single incision laparoscopic surgery for hysterectomy and Fallopian tube and ovary disease. Dr Stephen Lee is also trained to perform advanced hysteroscopic procedures such as resection of submucosal fibroid, endometrial ablation and resection, division of intrauterine synechiae and uterine septum and tubal catheterisation for proximal tubal obstruction.
Dr Stephen Lee can also perform routine laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures such as laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy, laparoscopic surgery for Fallopian tube and ovarian disease such as tubal ectopic pregnancy, hydrosalpinx and ovarian cysts, laparosopic treatment of mild endometriosis, laparoscopic sterilisation, diagnostic laparoscopy for investigation of pelvic pain and infertility, hysteroscopic removal of polyps, diagnostic hysteroscopy and curettage.
Dr Lee has well-established connections with the best gynaecological oncologists, colorectal surgeons and urologists in Perth should their expertise be required in complex gynaecological surgery, for example, in severe endometriosis where bowel, bladder or ureters are involved.
