Gynaecological Surgery

Gynaecological and laparoscopic surgery

Dr Vivek Arora is an accomplished surgeon who’s been performing complex gynaecological laparoscopic surgery and conventional open surgery for 20+ years. He specialises in the treatment of gynaecological conditions and gynaecological cancers.

Gynaecological surgery can be carried out laparoscopically, also called keyhole surgery, or may require an open procedure, called a laparotomy. 

Individualised care that goes the extra mile

Facing the prospect of surgery is daunting for anyone. It can be a stressful time discussing the different treatment options, especially with the use of complex clinical language. 

Rest assured, I’ll take the time to consider your history, health and current circumstances when making decisions regarding surgery. Most importantly, I’ll sit down with you to discuss the different options, including the benefits and risks, in a language you can understand. 

Clear communication matters, and my aim is to make sure you feel supported and cared for throughout your treatment journey.
