Laser gynecology is a relatively new method utilized in treatment of disorders related to female reproductive organs. It's possible to perform a number of health-improving procedures painlessly, fast, quickly and effectively with a laser. This treatment method is regularly used by the specialists of Regent Clinic Medical Center.
Benefits of laser treatment
Laser technology increases accuracy and speed of the treatment. The rehabilitation period is significantly shorter compared to other methods of gynecological disorders treatment. Scars and cicatricial tissues are either small or there is no sign of them at all.
In many cases, if a gynecology-related problem can be eliminated using a laser, the doctors recommend choosing this very method. Alternative technologies have an array of disadvantages. One example is cryotherapy procedure, during which only superficial therapy is performed, and sometimes it doesn't bring a full recovery. Cicatricial tissues are left after electrocoagulation procedure.

Laser therapy at «Regent Clinic»
At our clinic, before undergoing any kind of gynecological disorders treatment, it's required to pass the following preparations:
• examination performed on the chair by attending doctor;
• extended colposcopy;
• sampling of vaginal discharges, cell smear.
An experienced doctor will check medical history, test results, and find if there are any contraindications to the procedure. If the laser treatment is acceptable, a corresponding procedure will be assigned.
Laser treatment is performed with local anesthesia. The procedure takes up to 15 minutes. Erosion, polyp and other abnormal tissues are treated with a laser beam. After this, neoplasm is rejected, and the process of cells regeneration begins.
Hospital stay isn't required in most cases. First hours after the procedure can be accompanied by nagging pain in the lower abdomen and debilitating feeling. The process of mucous membrane clearing can be followed by bloody discharges; they will be gone in 5-7 days.
There are almost no strict restrictions during the rehabilitation period. Sauna, massage procedures and swimming pools (it's better to avoid dipping into water) shall not be visited within 1 month after the procedure. Acute exercises are prohibited for women.
A month and a half or two months later (according to doctor's instruction), it's required to revisit your doctor to check your medical status and the result of previously performed therapy.
Cervical erosion laser treatment
The most common disorder, which can be treated quickly and painlessly using a laser, is cervical erosion (also known as cervical ectropion). According to the statistics, at least half of women suffer from it in a particular period of their life. Cervical ectropion occurs mainly in young girls who have never even given birth. The main causes include distal risk factors (unsafe abortion, difficult delivery, infection, rough sexual intercourse), but sometimes cervical erosion can be congenital or caused by weakening of immune system.
It's very difficult to diagnose cervical ectropion on your own, since this disorder shows no signs of its presence. In rare cases only, it brings some discomfort. The girls often become aware of this problem only when visiting a gynecologist.
If the problem isn't solved in the proper time, the cervix can lose its elasticity, and it leads to difficult delivery in the future. It's also worth mentioning that impaired epithelial integrity can make a way for some severe infections. In some cases, it can become an indirect cause for the contraction of a tumor. Therefore it's very important to pass a medical checkup in due time and take the necessary steps.
Cervical ectropion laser treatment makes it possible to perform the procedure fast and safely for woman's health. Laser treats affected epithelium leaving no cicatricial tissues. The cervix keeps its maximal elasticity which is a really important matter for the women who are yet going to give birth.
Cervical erosion treatment procedure takes no more than 20 minutes. If the size of affected areas is small, total time of the treatment can be reduced up to 5 minutes. The doctors thoroughly monitor a patient's condition in the course of the procedure.
