As a gynecologist, Dr Clare is women’s health expert, specialising in issues such as menstrual problems, infertility, sexuality and menopause.
Your GP or other specialist will usually refer you to Dr Clare if you have a complex gynaecological condition, specific gynaecological concerns, or you need an expert second opinion.
Dr Clare combines expert medical diagnoses, treatments and an empathetic approach with the latest advances in gynecological surgery to give you the most pertinent information about your condition.
She can provide you with all the options available to you to help you make the right decision about your continued wellbeing.
Laparoscopy or keyhole surgery is an advanced surgery technique that’s less invasive, so it’s less traumatic for your body. Dr Clare is specially trained to perform simple and complex laparoscopic surgery and is a recognised leader in her field.
Why do I need Laparoscopic Surgery?
Laporoscopy is used for a wide range of conditions, including endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts, chronic pelvic pain or a hysterectomy.
What happens during a Laparoscopy?
Instead of a large open incision along your bikini line, your laparoscopic surgeon will make just a few tiny (0.5-1cm) incisions to insert a narrow high-definition camera so your Doctor can see a magnified video of your pelvic area.
Using specially created laparoscopic instruments, she can perform delicate surgery safely, quickly and effectively, reducing pain, scarring and recovery times.
IUD and Mirena placement
IUD & Mirena placement
Hormonal intrauterine devices (or IUDs) like Mirena offers effective, long-term contraception for premenopausal women, including teenagers. Its effects can last for up to 5 years and after removal you will return to your full baseline fertility prior to insertion.
IUDs can also decrease menstrual problems and endometriosis, the risk of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), STIs, and endometrial and cervical cancers.
Dr Clare has performed hundreds of successful IUD and Mirena placements, so you get added peace of mind that your procedure will go smoothly and with minimum risk.
Colposcopy for abnormal pap results
Colposcopy for abnormal pap results
If you’ve had an abnormal pap smear test result, a colposcopy lets your gynaecologist examine your cervix, vagina and vulva more closely. It usually takes around 20 minutes and can be performed in our surgery.
A special instrument called a colposcope is used to look closely at your vagina or cervix and a biopsy (a small sample of tissue) can be collected for further testing.
It’s normal to feel a bit anxious about a colposcopy, but there’s no need for concern. Your cervix largely has little sensation so you’re unlikely to feel a biopsy in this area.
If you’re having a cervical biopsy, you may feel a little discomfort, such as pressure or minor cramping.
If you’re having a biopsy taken in the lower part of your vagina or vulva, Dr Clare will administer a local anaesthetic to numb the area first.
After your colposcopy, you might experience some minor pain, light bleeding or dark discharge and you may need to avoid tampons or vaginal intercourse for around a week.
If you’re experiencing severe cramping, abnormal bleeding, fibroids, polyps, infertility or your IUD device had been misplaced, a hysteroscopy lets your doctor see inside your uterus.
A thin, lighted instrument with a camera called a hysteroscope, is inserted into your vagina and gently guided through your cervix and into the uterus. The camera is connected to a video screen to allow Dr Clare to examine the lining (endometrium) of your uterus.
Dr Clare may also use the hysteroscope to take a biopsy or remove any growths such as fibroids or polyps.
