Dr Eskander has over 40 years of experience in all areas of gynaecological surgery, including the removal of fibroids, treatment of endometriosis, myomectomy, hysterectomy, ovarian cyst removal, and the dissection of adhesions.
Operations are performed at Highgate Private Hospital, a large hospital in leafy north London renowned for its excellence and passionate care.
Key Hole surgery (or Laparoscopic surgery)
Dr Eskander has been performing keyhole surgery since 1978. A key hole surgery is performed through small 0.5-1 cm incisions, usually 3-4 in the lower abdomen either to explore and make a diagnosis or to carry out a surgical procedure. It uses images displayed on TV monitors for magnification of the surgical elements.
Key hole surgery is usually performed as a day surgery and allows you to go home the same day or after 24 hours.
Where possible, we prefer to remove cysts, fibroids, treat endomertiosis or dissect adhesions by key hole surgery.
