What is Gynaecology?
Gynaecology is the area of medicine that deals with health issues and conditions that are specific to women. This generally includes the female reproductive organs and genitalia. The reproductive organs consist of the ovaries that release an egg every month, the fallopian tubes that lead from the ovaries, the uterus (womb), which is where a baby will grow if the egg is fertilised during sexual intercourse, the cervix (opening of the uterus) and the vagina.

Laparoscopy
Many gynaecological investigations are performed by laparoscopy. This is a procedure to view the inside of the abdomen (stomach) through a specially lit type of mini telescope (laparoscope) that is inserted through a small cut in the abdomen. The laparoscope also contains a small camera that sends pictures to a screen that the doctor can watch.

Sometimes surgical procedures (keyhole surgery) can be performed at the same time. A laparoscopy is performed under a general anaesthetic (you are asleep).

Consultants

Note: Please note below that some people are not available at all locations.

Referral Expectations

We prefer to receive referrals from general practitioners, but will see women without a referral if necessary.
Most appointments will be able to be made within one - two weeks of calling. We can also accept emergency patients if appointments are available.
If surgery is required our gynaecologists operate at MercyAscot and Brightside Hospitals (overnight surgery) and day surgery at Auckland City Surgical Services, 105 Remuera Road and Columba Clinic at Ascot.
