Pelvic surgery can help fix a problem that could affect your pregnancy.
Read moreThe Pelvic Clinic at Melbourne University Hospital is the first major Australian clinic offering surgery to correct a problem with the pelvis.
It offers the procedure under a specialised agreement with the Australian Medical Association.
“We offer a unique operation to fix the malposition of the pelvic area,” Dr John Beddoes, the clinic’s general surgery manager, told ABC Radio Melbourne.
“It’s basically a simple repair to the pelvic floor and the lower part of the pelvic area.”
If you have a normal pelvis that’s normal when you’re born, the problem is in the pelvic organs and the pelvises are not aligned correctly.”‘
It’s a very important operation’The procedure is relatively straightforward.
The pelvis has a malposition at the end of the opening that makes it difficult to pull in.
The surgeon uses a tool called a scalpel to scrape away excess fat and bone.”
The scalpel is basically a scaler which has a curved blade which is attached to a machine,” Dr Beddows explained.”
So, you cut into the area where the excess fat is, and then you can remove the excess bone, and it’s basically the same procedure that a surgeon would do with a scalemaker.
“If you’re not too young to have surgery, or if you’re a woman who is already overweight, you’ll need to be fitted with a weight-loss device before you can undergo the surgery.
The procedure requires a patient to be in a medically induced coma for a few days and then the surgeon will begin the procedure.”
That’s what happens when the patient is in a coma, which is when you don’t have any consciousness and it just takes off like a balloon,” Dr George said.”
Once the patient’s in that coma, it’s pretty safe for the surgeon to do the operation.
“In a coma the patient doesn’t have a very good chance of surviving, so we do this procedure very carefully.”
It’s an operation that takes only a few minutes to complete.
The surgery is the third operation the clinic has offered in the past five years.
The first was a hip operation in 2013.
The second was a pelvis surgery in 2016.
And the third surgery was the first of its kind.
Dr George said the surgery was performed with the same surgeons as the hip surgery.
“They did the operation in the same way, but the operation was performed in the operating theatre,” he said.
Dr Beddys explained that the operation would have taken place in the “dynamic” section of the clinic.
“When the patient comes in, they’re in a very stable and comfortable state,” Dr J Bedds said.
“And they’re just trying to keep their body in place so that the surgeon can do the procedure safely and painlessly.”
It’s like the surgery’s a really easy and safe procedure.
It’s the same technique, just the surgery is done in the dynamic section of our clinic.
“The surgery’s really easy, the pain is low and it feels natural and comfortable.”
And it’s a good procedure because the surgeon’s done the surgery with a very strong surgical team.””
The surgeon’s got the same team as the surgeon, the same people, and the same experience,” Dr K said.
In the meantime, the Pelvic clinic is working to make the surgery more accessible to more people.”
I’m trying to get as many women as possible to have this procedure, so it’s really important that they can get it,” Dr D said.
