The friendly team at Anglesea Gynaecology, 13 Thackeray Street, go out of their way to put every patient at their ease, dealing with women in a sensitive, caring and professional manner. The centre’s team of two highly skilled gynaecologists - Dr Vedprakash (VP) Singh and Dr Lakshmi Ravikanti – are all highly regarded in their fields within New Zealand and Australia.
Previously known as Anglesea Women’s Specialist, Anglesea Gynaecology is the only Gynaecology group practice of its kind in Hamilton, allowing the team to share their expertise for complex cases. The centre diagnoses and treats a comprehensive range of gynaecological conditions that can be very distressing for women. These include:
- heavy or painful periods
- ovarian cysts
- pelvic floor disorders like prolapse of the bladder/uterus/bowel
- urinary incontinence.
The centre also diagnoses and treats pre-cancer of the cervix and some gynaecological cancers.
Anglesea Gynaecology understands that an intimate examination ‘down there’ can be nerve-wracking for many women, so every patient is chaperoned by a female staff member for that extra bit of reassurance. We’re a very busy and popular practice with a great team of experienced doctors and diligent staff. We try to be as friendly as possible, whilst providing a very professional service.
Anglesea Gynaecology offers worldclass technology for performing advanced laparoscopic surgery. Another advantage is easy access to medical services at Anglesea Clinic, including MRI scanning, X-rays, ultrasounds and blood tests. The doctors at Anglesea Gynaecology also work at Fertility Associates. One unique feature of this practice is that all complex surgeries are carried out by two gynaecologists working together as a team to ensure a high standard of safety, at no extra cost to the patient. Patients can rest assured they will receive the very best in pre- and post-operative care for a speedy recovery.
If you feel a bit embarrassed about going to see your GP, Anglesea Gynaecology also offers cervical smear tests.
|Mon – Fri||8:00 AM – 4:00 PM|
Most of our patients are referred by GPs, but we do take self-referrals if someone is feeling quite concerned about a possible gynaecological matter.
Please ensure you bring with you:
- pelvis ultrasound
- referral letter
- any useful medical information
- all medical insurance details
