Gynae Care Services

  • Obstetrics (care of the pregnant woman and unborn baby)
  • Gynaecological endoscopic surgery
  • Infertility
  • Endometriosis
  • Women’s health i.e. routine gynaecological care

We specialize in gynaecologic endoscopic surgery. All surgical procedures are performed laparoscopically with emphasis on laparoscopic hysterectomy, infertility surgery and surgical excision of endometriosis.

Office Hours

8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday

We have a philosophy of patient-focused care, the most important aspect being knowledge of who our patients are and what their existing and potential needs are. This involved spending time with the patients to determine needs other than only the obvious diagnosis and treatment. We believe in “ask first, then treat.”
