Gynecology – Diagnostic laparoscopy

One of the laparoscopic maneuvers used to diagnose and improve fertility performance is Chromopertubation.

Chromopertubation is a method of verifying and correcting the uterine tube permeability in women suspected of tubal infertility. Currently, this is the Standard European procedure.

Gynecologic Oncology

The Gynecologic Oncology deals with the medical or surgical treatment of the female reproductive system. Depending on the accurate oncological diagnosis, the doctor explains what the diagnosed condition means to the patients and recommends a medical or surgical treatment plan that will be carried out at our clinic. The types of procedures that can be performed are both laparoscopic and classical.

Our surgeons are in permanent collaboration with the Medical Oncology and the Radiation Oncology departments where we guide patients who can undergo other treatment procedures besides the surgical ones.

Types of Gynecologic cancer

Female reproductive organs types of cancer (ovaries, tubes, uterus, vagina and vulva) are also called gynecologic cancerous diseases, hence the name of this medical specialty branch. The most common types of cancer are:

  • vaginal opening vulvar cancer
  • ovarian cancer
  • uterine cancer

Genital tract cancer

We need to know that there are types of cancer that develop and generate no symptoms. Ovarian cancer, for example, is most of the times (over 50% of cases), detected only after it has already spread. Generally, awareness about the different types and and potential symptoms of the genital tract cancer in women is poor, however, we must pay attention to any changes occurring in our bodies and undergo regular check-ups.

Cervical cancer can be detected with the help of the Papanicolau test, which is why your gynecologist recommends you to undergo it on a regular basis. In case of long-term or recurrent symptoms (vaginal bleeding, random menstruation cycles, pain or tension in the pelvic area, abdominal, lumbar pain, bloating sensation, itching or stinging of the vulva, changes in the colour of the vulva), you must immediately consult a gynecologist. It is also recommended to know if there is a family history of gynecologic cancer and mention this aspect to your doctor, if it’s the case.

Breast cancer screening

The Gynecologic Oncology Unit treats patients with malignant conditions of the genital tract and of the breasts. Our approach is based on optimal pre-operative assessment and personalized treatment planning. After the pre-operative assessment is carried out, the treatment of each patient is planned by the oncologist surgeons with the patient’s agreement.

Optimal surgical treatment will generate optimum results. In this respect, we collaborate with renowned and experienced surgeons in the field.

What is breast cancer

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer affecting women in Romania. Every year, over 8,000 Romanian women are diagnosed with breast cancer. The majority (8 out of 10) is over 50, but younger women can be affected as well.

Breasts are made up of adipose and conjunctive tissue, as well as from thousands of small glands called lobules, which produce milk. If a woman has a baby, the milk is distributed towards the nipple through small tubes called ducts, allowing her to breastfeed.

Our bodies consist in billions of tiny cells, new ones being created on when it is necessary. With cancer, this organized process functions abnormally, and cells start growing and multiplying in an uncontrolled manner.
