Surgical Management of Ectopic Pregnancy: Expert Approaches at Marina's Clinic

Ectopic pregnancy, a condition where the embryo implants outside the uterus, is a complex and potentially life-threatening situation that requires prompt and effective management. At Marina’s Clinic, under the experienced guidance of Dr. Preethi, we specialise in the surgical management of ectopic pregnancies, ensuring patient safety and health. This blog explores what ectopic pregnancy is, how to manage it, and the specific treatment approaches used at our clinic.

What is Ectopic Pregnancy?
An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilised egg implants and grows outside the main cavity of the uterus, most commonly in the fallopian tubes. This condition cannot proceed normally, as the implanted embryo is not viable, and it poses significant health risks to the mother. Understanding the signs and symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy is crucial for timely intervention.

How to Manage Ectopic Pregnancy
At Marina’s Clinic, managing ectopic pregnancy starts with a thorough diagnosis, often involving ultrasound and blood tests. Dr. Preethi emphasises the importance of early detection for better outcomes. Once diagnosed, the approach to management depends on the specifics of each case, including the size of the ectopic pregnancy and the patient’s overall health.

Treatment for Ectopic Pregnancy: Surgical Options
In many cases, surgery is necessary to treat ectopic pregnancy. The surgical approach at Marina’s Clinic typically involves laparoscopy, a minimally invasive procedure that allows Dr. Preethi to remove the ectopic pregnancy while preserving the patient’s fertility as much as possible. In more complex cases, an open surgery (laparotomy) might be required.

How to Cure Ectopic Pregnancy
While ‘curing’ an ectopic pregnancy isn’t the right term, effectively treating it to prevent complications is the primary goal. At Marina’s Clinic, our approach to treatment is patient-centred, focusing on preserving health and future fertility. In addition to surgical options, we also offer comprehensive post-operative care and support, including counselling and future pregnancy planning.

At Marina’s Clinic, led by Dr. Preethi, we are dedicated to providing the highest standard of care in the surgical management of ectopic pregnancies. Understanding what an ectopic pregnancy is, how to manage it, and the available treatment options is critical for patients facing this challenging condition. Our team is committed to guiding each patient through this journey with expertise, compassion, and personalised care.
