Obstetrics and Gynecology

There can be varied forms of complication among Women before, during and after giving birth to a child, some of the commonly found issues are stated below for your better understanding of what we deal with on a day-to- day routine. Hysterectomy Having heavy, prolonged and painful periods might be due to some abnormality in the uterus. An abdominal hysterectomy is removal of the uterus through a cut in your lower abdomen which will offer a solution to the problem. The operation may include removal of the cervix; this is called a total abdominal hysterectomy or TAH. Sometimes the cervix is not removed; this is called a sub-total abdominal hysterectomy. Pap smear and Colposcopy (for abnormal smears) Pap smear is a diagnostic test of a sample of cells collected from the surface of a woman's cervix (the lower, narrow end of a woman's uterus) to check for inflammation, infection or abnormalities that can develop into cancer. A Colposcopy is a procedure in which a special magnifying device with a light called a colposcope is used to visually examine the vagina and cervix. This procedure is normally carried out after a smear result is found to be abnormal as it

gives more information about abnormal cells that could lead to cancer. The procedure can be used to direct the location of where a tissue biopsy should be done and it can also be used to monitor treatment of cervix abnormalities. Jehangir Hospital is one of the VERY FEW hospitals in Pune offering this test. Endometriosis treatment Endometriosis is a chronic disease involving endometrial tissue. Normally, endometrial tissue is found only inside the uterus, the reproductive organ where a foetus develops. In endometriosis, endometrial- like tissue is found outside the uterus. It may be found on organs in the abdomen, pelvis, or another location. Outside the uterus, the tissue continues to respond to hormones. It swells, breaks down, and bleeds, but it is unable to pass from the body during menstruation. Surrounding tissue becomes inflamed, often with scarring. At Jehangir, specialized gynecologists attend to such problems giving you different choices of treatments as applicable.

Fibroids treatment
Fibroids are growths that form in the uterus (womb). They are benign (not cancerous) and are made up of muscle fiber. Fibroids can be as small as a pea and can grow as large as a melon. Fibroids are most common in women in their 30s and 40s, and tend to shrink after the menopause. Urinary Incontinence treatment Urinary incontinence is the loss of voluntary bladder control leading to the leakage of urine. It can be temporary or chronic. Incontinence is a symptom, not a condition in itself. In some cases, incontinence may have several different causes or sometimes the cause is unclear. Infections (UTI, Pelvic inflammatory disease) treatment Urinary tract infections (UTIs) which are a common problem found among many Women consulting expert gynecologists at Jehangir are caused by bacteria that invade the urinary system and multiply. The infection can occur in any part of the urinary system, but usually starts in the urethra (a tube that carries the urine out of the body). Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a serious infection of the female reproductive organs. These include the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. PID can cause scar tissue to form in the pelvis and fallopian tubes. This damage may result in infertility, a future tubal pregnancy, or chronic pelvic pain.

Prolapse treatment
Your uterus (womb) is normally held in place by various muscles, tissue and ligaments. Prolapse of the uterus occurs when the muscles supporting the uterus become so weak that the uterus cannot stay in place so it slips down from its normal position. This can happen in various stages.

Premenstrual syndrome treatment

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a disorder marked by physical and emotional symptoms. It affects women one or two weeks before the beginning of their menstrual period. The cause of PMS is unknown. It may be that a complex combination of environmental, metabolic, and behavioral factors produces a 'vulnerability' to the hormonal changes associated with menstruation. A brain chemical, serotonin, may play a role in severe forms of PMS. Consulting with your gynecologist often seems beneficial in such cases. Contraception Women need contraception for most of their reproductive life and their needs differ at different stages; teenage, early (20 to 35 years old), late reproductive (36 to 45 years old) and Premenopausal. All methods of contraception including surgical, pills, patches, injections, implants, vaginal diaphragm and various coils (namely copper IUCD and Mirena) are provided tailored to your individual needs by experienced doctors at Jehangir.

HPV vaccination
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the virus which causes genital warts and cervical cancer. The HPV vaccine, which now has its Indian license, gives excellent protection for teenagers and women who have never come across the virus before.
