Minimally Invasive Gynaecological Surgery

The Minimally Invasive Surgery Unit (MIS Unit) provides endoscopic services, elective laparoscopic and hysteroscopic services to the majority of patients with benign gynaecological conditions. The KK MIS Unit has the largest laparoscopic workload in Singapore and is responsible for the endoscopic training and accreditation of O&G doctors.

With a dedicated team of laparoscopic surgeons providing on call service every day, we have managed to achieve a 96% - 99% proportion of handling ectopic pregnancy (a life threatening gynaecological emergency) by laparoscopic keyhole surgery. This has translated to a faster recovery and less pain for all our patients.
