Laparoscopic Surgery (Womb/Ovary)

(Keyhole Surgery)

Summary

Laparoscopic Surgery can diagnose a wide range of conditions inside the abdomen or pelvis. It can also be used to carry out procedures, such as removing a damaged organ, or getting a tissue sample for testing.

Laparoscopy is commonly used in gynaecology (the female reproductive system), gastroenterology (the digestive system) and urology (the urinary system).

  • Arranging your Treatment

    Before going ahead with this treatment, you will need to have an initial consultation with a specialist Consultant to go through your medical history and diagnosis. At this appointment, your consultant will confirm the exact treatment you require.

    If you would like to have an initial consultation, you can call us and we can help you find the consultant best for you.

    Alternatively, if you have already been diagnosed as needing a particular operation or treatment, our Reservations team can give you a guide price for this to be carried out at KIMS Hospital and book an appointment for you to meet a consultant.

    Call our Reservations team on +44 (0) 1622 237 727 or email reservations@kims.org.uk

     

  • Paying for your Treatment

    You can be treated at KIMS by using your private medical insurance or by paying for yourself.

    If you have private medical insurance, you will need to contact your insurer to ensure you are covered for the initial consultation prior to making an appointment and obtain an authorisation number. The insurance company will then need to be advised if you require further treatment. The insurance company usually settles bills on your behalf.

    If you are paying for your own treatment, you will need to pay for an initial consultation. This will be confirmed at the time of booking but is typically £150-£250. You will also need to pay for any associated diagnostic tests your consultant recommends (for example x-rays and blood tests).

    Following this consultation, if you don’t need any further treatment or if you decide paying for yourself isn’t the right option, there is no commitment to proceed further.

    If you require the operation or procedure to be carried out, you will receive a quote for your treatment. This quote is also subject to pre-assessment checks prior to your admission to hospital.

    Payment is required 7 days prior to admission.

  • What’s Included

    The fixed price package above includes all the costs associated with this treatment at KIMS Hospital.

    You will be given a quote prior to admission to confirm this cost. The amount you are quoted may differ from the published price for a number of reasons:

    • The Consultant you choose 
    • Your medical history and whether you have any associated medical conditions which may impact this treatment
    • The type of anaesthetic your Consultant advises is best for you 
    • The type of implant or drug you choose or your Consultant advises is best for you

    In some cases, if you have certain pre-existing medical conditions, it may not be possible to provide you with a fixed price for your Main Treatment. If this is the case, the hospital will discuss the available options with you. Your quote is also subject to pre-assessment checks prior to your admission to hospital.

 

A laparoscopy is carried out under general anaesthetic, so you will not feel any pain during the procedure.

During laparoscopy, the surgeon makes one or more small incisions in the abdomen. This allows him to insert the laparoscope and examine the area of interest without having to make any large cuts.

Following the operation you will be taken back to your room. You can often go home on the same day you have laparoscopy, although you may need to stay in hospital overnight.
