Gynaecological Surgical Interventions

Dr Raul Fuentes is renowned for his expertise in a wide array of gynaecological surgical interventions. These procedures are meticulously performed with the utmost care and precision at Mediclinic Thabazimbi Hospital, ensuring the best possible outcomes for women facing various gynaecological challenges.

Total Abdominal Hysterectomy

Dr Fuentes frequently performs an abdominal hysterectomy - a surgical procedure to remove the uterus entirely. This intervention is typically recommended for conditions such as fibroids, endometrial and cervical pathologies, and menstrual disorders that do not respond to medical treatment.

By removing the uterus, this surgery provides relief from symptoms and prevents potential complications associated with these conditions.


This surgical procedure involves the removal of uterine fibroids (myomas) while preserving the uterus. Myomectomy is ideal for women who wish to maintain their fertility or avoid a hysterectomy.

Through myomectomy, patients can find relief from symptoms caused by fibroids, such as heavy menstrual bleeding and pelvic pain, while retaining their productive capabilities.


Dr Fuentes performs a laparotomy to treat ovarian cysts and other ovarian pathologies. This surgical approach provides access to the ovaries for the treatment of various conditions, ranging from benign cysts to more complex ovarian diseases. Dr Fuentes' expertise in laparotomies ensures effective management and treatment of these ovarian issues.

Female Tubal Ligation

For women seeking a permanent form of birth control, Dr Fuentes offers female tubal ligation. This sterilisation procedure involves the surgical closure of the fallopian tubes, preventing pregnancy. It's a highly effective method for those who are certain about not wanting future pregnancies.

Pelvic Floor Repair

Pelvic floor repair procedures are critical interventions for various genital prolapse conditions. Dr Fuentes performs surgeries such as anterior vaginal wall repair for cystocele (bladder prolapse), posterior vaginal wall repair for rectocele (rectal prolapse), and repairs for old perineal lacerations or previous episiotomies. These procedures aim to restore the normal anatomy and functionality of the pelvic floor, improving the patient's quality of life.


Labiaplasty is a specialised procedure to correct labia minora hypertrophy. This surgery involves the reduction of enlarged labia minora, which can cause discomfort, hygiene issues, or psychological distress.

It helps in enhancing comfort and confidence in women experiencing this condition.

Endometrial Biopsy & Cervical Procedures

Endometrial biopsy, also known as womb scrubbing, is a diagnostic procedure Dr Fuentes conducts to examine the lining of the uterus. This biopsy can help diagnose abnormal uterine conditions.

Additionally, cervical biopsy and LLETZ (Large Loop Excision of the Transformation Zone) procedures are done to treat pre-cancerous lesions of the cervix, aiming to prevent the progression of cervical cancer.

Uterine Curettage & Laparotomy

Dr Fuentes provides compassionate care through uterine curettage for spontaneous miscarriages, helping in the physical and emotional healing process. Furthermore, laparotomy is performed in cases of ectopic pregnancy, where a pregnancy occurs outside the uterus. This urgent surgical intervention is crucial for the patient's health and well-being.

Dr Fuentes' gynaecological surgical interventions represent a commitment to women's health and well-being, offering relief, restoration, and hope through advanced medical care.
