With the evolution of surgical instruments and procedures, there has been a significant shift towards minimally invasive ‘keyhole’ surgery. The benefits are numerous and include faster recovery, lower blood loss, lower pain and better cosmesis.
Whilst smaller procedures have existed for many years, quite major surgery can now be performed through keyhole including hysterectomy, removal of large fibroids & cysts and treatment of severe endometriosis. These advanced procedures require significant skills and training to be performed safely and effectively.
Dr Hugo has undertaken a 2-year fellowship in advanced laparoscopic surgery after completing his 6 years of gynaecology training. This training allows him to perform the most difficult of surgeries.Read More
Screening for cervical cancer with a pap smear is an important part of staying healthy. Managing women with abnormal smears is an area Dr Hugo specialises in. Whilst the majority of women with an abnormality will not have a cancer, it is important that precancerous conditions are well managed to prevent future disease.
Colposcopy is an examination of the cervix and vagina using a specially designed microscope called a colposcope. It allows abnormal areas of the cervix to be identified and tested.
Dr Hugo is a member of The Australian Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology and participates in CQuIP, the colposcopy quality and certification program in Australia.Read More
