Have you been told that you need traditional open surgery (ie surgery through a large incision on the abdomen) for your excessive menstrual bleeding, fibroids, ovarian cysts or endometriosis?
The consequences of traditional open surgery are:
Now, instead of open surgery, you can opt for Laparoscopic Surgery.
Laparoscopic surgery, also known as minimally invasive surgery or key-hole surgery, refers to surgery done through small (less than 1cm) cuts on your abdomen.
The major advantages of doing surgery through small cuts on your abdomen are:
This means you are able to:
Laparoscopic surgery can be done for removing
Minimally invasive surgery can also be used for
Here are some of the procedures that we perform:
We evaluate you individually to determine the medical and surgical treatment options that best suit your needs.
We are conservative in our approach to benign (non-cancerous) gynecologic conditions, and only consider surgical options when necessary and appropriate.
If surgery is found to be an appropriate option, we can offer a minimally invasive approach to most patients, often when they are told by other physicians that a laparoscopic approach is not possible.
We have years of experience performing many common gynaecologic surgeries through the laparoscope.
We are confident that as much as 80% of surgeries done for benign gynecologic disease can be performed with laparoscopic (minimally invasive) techniques.

The previous gynae I consulted before Dr Tan suggested treating my condition by doing the traditional ‘cut-open’ surgery. I was not very happy with this suggestion as anything to do with ‘cut-open’ scares me off.
Dr Tan suggested using keyhole surgery for my uterine fibroid. He did an excellent job explaining and making me understand of my condition and the procedures that I would go through patiently.
I felt more comfortable discussing with him about my condition as compared to previous gynae who always made me feel that he was always rushing during consultation.
I would highly recommend Dr Tan’s personalized and friendly services.
He is very approachable, easy to talk too and friendly. That makes me very comfortable during consultation. It is very important to have a gynae whom you can discuss and talk to about your condition comfortably and also to understand your condition and the process of surgery that you will undergo. I am very satisfied with the services rendered by Dr PK Tan.
As a patient, I am very satisfied with the services rendered by Dr and also P K Tan Clinic in general.
