Some patients present with rather complex conditions that many gynaecologists are not comfortable treating.
- Those complexities may include that the patient is elderly, obese, or has multiple medical conditions that increase a patient’s risk for a complication at or after surgery.
- It is also possible that patients had multiple previous surgical procedures that cause adhesions (internal scarring) that would make surgery very difficult. Some gynaecologists prefer not to take on these challenging patients, whereas my practice and I are used to dealing with those issues regularly.
- Some patients develop signs and symptoms pointing to the possibility of cancer (ovarian masses, enlarged uterus). These patients require an intraoperative frozen section examination (while the patient is under anaesthetic) to exclude a malignant tumour.
