Women often neglect their health in their endeavor to care for their family’s wellbeing. Steadfast in our belief that all women especially after 35 should have an annual check-up we conduct routine tests through the year, backed by comprehensive assistance and counselling. In addition to performing these vital screening tests, we also review women’s health history and counsel them individually to prevent diseases and improve their gynaecological health.

Puberty is the process a girl’s body goes through as she develops into an adult. Some of the common puberty disorders treated at Manipal Hospitals by our gynaecologists depending on their intensity include Delayed puberty – puberty hasn't started by age 13; Precocious puberty – puberty begins too early, before age 7 or 8 in girls; Contrasexual pubertal development – development of male characteristics in females; Premature thelarche – breast development without any other signs of puberty.
In her lifetime, the most common disorders afflicting a woman are of the menstrual type. And considering that she will menstruate for well over 40 years, there’s an entire gamut of gynaecological conditions to set right.
Typically, menstrual disorders can be caused by a variety of factors, including Uterine fibroids, Hormonal imbalances, Clotting disorders, Cancer, Sexually transmitted infections (STIs), Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) with cysts on the ovaries, and genetics.
Trained in handling both simple and complex menstrual disorders, our gynaecologists deal with these typical conditions with finesse.
Gynaecological endocrinology covers a wide area of interest that includes polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis, hormone therapy, and hormonal contraception, in addition to rare diseases with consequences for female reproductive endocrinology (e.g. Turners syndrome).
Why choose Manipal Hospitals
Armed with the capability and finesse to diagnose and plan the most effective procedures for successful outcomes, the multidisciplinary team of erudite gynaecologists, oncologists, support care team, endocrinologists and obstetricians brainstorm to individualize the most effective treatment options including the complex endometrial procedure for uterine fibroids.
Endocrine Gynaecological Services
The endocrine system deals with hormonal disorders. In women, these include amenorrhoea, hypogondaism and polycystic ovary syndrome, menstrual problems, menopause problems and early menopause.
Osteoporosis is common in menopausal women. It literally means porous bone, is a disease in which the density and quality of bone are reduced. As bones become more porous and fragile, the risk of fracture is greatly increased. The loss of bone occurs silently and progressively without symptoms until the first fracture occurs.
Hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to look inside your uterus in order to diagnose and treat causes of abnormal bleeding. Hysteroscopy is done using a hysteroscope, a thin, lighted tube that is inserted into the vagina to examine the cervix and inside of the uterus. Manipal Hospitals has some of the finest gynaecologists in the world to conduct this day procedure with fair competition.
Also known as diagnostic laparoscopy, this is a surgical diagnostic procedure used to examine the organs inside the abdomen and reproductive organs. It's a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure that requires only small incisions. Laparoscopy uses an instrument called a laparoscope to scan the organs to help gynaecologists to diagnose certain disorders such as endometriosis , pelvic adhesions, ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids, and individualise the most effective line of treatment.
Robotic Surgery in gynaecology
The field of robotic surgery has developed rapidly, and its use to treat gynaecologic conditions has grown exponentially. Harnessing their skills to operate this state of the art machine, gynaeco surgeons at Manipal Hospitals operate the robot arms to perform some of the exacting gynaecological surgeries way beyond what a human hand could possibly do. They routinely conduct hysterectomies, sacrocolpopexy or pelvic organ prolapse, myomectomy or fibroid surgery, adnexal surgery, and malignancy staging in case of cervical or uterine cancer.
Advanced medical technology has revolutionized the healthcare world by making surgeries easier to perform and more comfortable for patients. Cryosurgery is one of them. Also called cryotherapy, it is the use of extreme cold produced by liquid nitrogen or argon gas to destroy abnormal tissue.
Why choose Manipal Hospitals
Cryosurgery is used to treat external tumors, such as those on the skin. This unique treatment technology is also extended to treat tumors inside the body and in the bone. For internal tumors, liquid nitrogen or argon gas is circulated through a hollow instrument called a cryoprobe, which is placed in contact with the tumor. At Manipal Hospitals, we offer state of the art cryosurgery facilities where the gynaecologist uses ultrasound or MRI to guide the cryoprobe and monitor the freezing of the cells, thus limiting damage to nearby healthy tissue.
