KOCHI: The International Society for Gynaecologic Endoscopy is organising the fifth live surgery workshop and international conference on gynaecological endoscopy in association with Paul’s Hospital in October.
As part of the conference, Paul’s Hospital is organising a free gynaecological screening camp on Saturday.
The camp at the hospital is meant for the patients with gynaecological disorders who are in need of surgical procedures such as removal of fibroid, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, cervical cancer, urinary incontinence, hysterectomy and reversal of sterilisation.
According to Dr Paul, International Society for Gynaecologic Endoscopy president and Paul’s Hospital chairman, these conditions can be cured by keyhole surgery, thus avoiding an open surgery.
A dedicated team of medical experts will attend patients using the latest equipment at the advanced endoscopy and infertility treatment corner attached to the hospital, said a statement released to the media.
“Selected patients will undergo keyhole surgery, as recommended and it will be performed by various experts of national and international repute in the field on a later date.
“Subsidised surgical procedures would be performed to select patients under certain terms and conditions. The patient would have to pay only a nominal fee to cover cost of medicines and services of the reputed national and international surgeons,” said Dr Paul. Those who wish to participate in the camp must register in advance as the number is limited.
