Our Clinical Services


Screening and Prevention
Pap Smear Cervix cancer is the fifth most common cancer in Singapore and can be prevented by screening with the Pap Smear. Early changes in the cervix can be seen long before a cancer develops and treating the cancer in this pre-cancerous stage can prevent cervix cancer from occurring. Colposcopy When a pap smear suggests that there

are some pre-cancer cells, your specialist may suggest a colposcopy examination. This involves an instrument with a magnifying glass through which a better view of the cervix can be obtained. Cone Biopsy A cone biopsy is a minor surgical procedure. It involves the removal of a cylindrical or cone-shaped piece of the cervix in which the abnormal cells are located. Pathological examination will then confirm the diagnosis and ensure that all the abnormal cells have been removed. Laser Treatment Laser surgery is a safe and effective method available for various gynaecological conditions of the vulva, vagina and cervix. The laser produces a beam of intense light not visible to the eye. This beam is directed by the surgeon on the affected area as he views the area through an operating microscope. The laser beam instantly evaporates diseased cells while causing little or no damage to the surrounding healthy tissues.

Womens Cancer Support


Care for patients goes beyond medical grounds. Counselling sessions, support group therapy, home visits and social activities help cancer patients of all ages cope emotionally with their disease and treatment, and to adjust to life after cancer. Psychotherapy sessions help patients through the emotional trauma of a diagnosis of cancer and treatment, and psychiatrists help alleviate severe symptoms of anxiety and depression that can be associated with cancer treatment. Nurse counsellers, volunteer befrienders and hospice staff help to link these families in need to community help groups. A wide range of books on coping with the disease are also available to patients and their families at the Patient Education Centre.

Education and Research


To achieve clinical leadership, the centres research programmes focus on the advancement in the prevention, control and cure of gynaecological cancers. After a ten-year study (1998- 2008) of womens cancer involving 4,000 patients focused on cancer of the cervix, uterus, ovary, vulva and vagina, it was found the centres treatment has resulted in better outcomes. For example, the centres treatment of uterine cancer had pushed up the five-year survival rate of a patient with Stage 2 cancer to a

level almost comparable with Stage 1 cancer. The centre also conducts regular workshops, conferences and public forums, including the Annual Colposcopy courses held with reputable international centres, attended by local and overseas delegates.

Accreditations
The Centre was the first in Asia to introduce a new state-of-the-art digital colposcopy system, an important step in screening for cervical cancer. Called Mediscan, the system captures high quality photographs and videos of the cervix. It is also a recognised training centre of the Royal Australian New Zealand College of O & G for Gynaecologic Oncology.
