Tailored Care to Treat Common Women’s Health Conditions
Gynaecological conditions can impact every aspect of a woman’s life, causing pain and disrupting physical, emotional and social health. While some of the conditions listed below may be common, the symptoms are not normal, and treatment can improve your quality of life.
For almost 20 years, Dr Hugo has been caring for women’s health, offering patients the information they need to make an informed decision about their health. He can assist in the treatment of the following conditions and provide general gynaecological care and fertility treatment as a fertility doctor in Melbourne.
Dr Hugo has a particular interest in endometriosis, adenomyosis, pelvic pathology, pelvic pain, menstrual disorders and infertility. He is also an advanced laparoscopic surgeon and strives to offer minimally invasive treatment that produces the best outcome for his patient.
Heavy periods are experienced by 1 in 3 women and can be caused by hormonal imbalance or an underlying condition. Dr Hugo can help you identify the cause of menorrhagia (heavy periods) and offer tailored treatment options.
Fibroids are muscle growths that occur in the womb. It is estimated that 40% of women have fibroids; however, most are small and harmless. Larger or symptomatic fibroids may require removal. Dr Hugo is an advanced laparoscopic surgeon and one of only a few doctors who can safely remove fibroids using this minimally invasive, key-hole treatment.
Adenomyosis is a condition that occurs when tissue from the internal lining of the uterus grows into the muscle layer of the uterus. This condition can cause heavy bleeding and painful periods.
Endometriosis affects 1 in 5 women and occurs when cells from the internal lining of the uterus are found outside the uterus on the pelvic lining, ovaries and bowel. The condition can cause heavy periods, pain and infertility.
Ovarian cysts are usually benign; however, they can cause significant pain and symptoms, including pressure, nausea, bloating and occasionally irregular periods. Removal of cysts needs to be done carefully so as not to compromise your fertility and egg count. For the investigation and treatment of ovarian cysts, visit Dr Hugo.
Uterine Polyps are growths on the inner lining of the uterus, which can cause abnormal and troublesome bleeding. Most are non-cancerous and can be treated with minimally invasive surgery.
Navigating infertility is a challenging and often overwhelming experience for couples. Dr Hugo is a fertility specialist offering tailored treatments to help singles, couples, and same-sex couples grow their families. He is also the co-founder of an independent and specialist fertility unit, Newlife IVF.
