Dr. Priya Bansal, a Gynae-Oncologist from Fortis Hospital, Noida, Visited Vaidam for an Interactive Session on Women's Health

Dr. Priya Bansal

When it comes to women's healthcare, the role of gynaecologists is crucial. These dedicated professionals diagnose and treat a range of issues affecting the female reproductive system. Gynaecological cancer, one such grave issue, has emerged over the past years.

The rise of gynaecological cancer in females highlights the importance of early detection and specialised care. Some gynaecologists, like Dr. Priya Bansal, further specialise in gynaecological oncology, emphasising the critical importance of early cancer detection and treatment.

In the past, doctors like gynaecologists or oncologists used to treat gynaecological cancers. As these cases became more complicated, a new specialised field called gynaecological oncology emerged. Although cancer screening programs are available in both urban and rural India, many women still face significant challenges in accessing them.

To bridge this gap and reshape perceptions about common gynaecological issues, we had the privilege of hosting Dr. Priya Bansal at Vaidam's office. She is a renowned Gynaecologist and Gynae-onco Surgeon at Fortis Hospital, Noida. She shared her expertise on several critical topics.

Here are the Session's Top Highlights:

Robotic Gynaecological Surgery

Dr. Bansal highlighted the introduction of robotic surgery for gynecologic oncology at Fortis Hospital, Noida. This advanced technology is employed to treat various cancers, including:

Robot-assisted gynecologic surgery can be used for the following procedures:

  • Simple/Complex hysterectomy
  • Excision of tubal/ovarian cysts
  • Myomectomy
  • Sacrocolpopexy
  • Tubal anastomosis after sterilisation
  • Surgery for endometriosis
  • Fertility Sparing Surgeries (FSS)

Fertility Preservation

Fertility preservation is an emerging field that allows patients to maintain reproductive health despite undergoing medical treatments. This is particularly applicable in cancer treatments (oncofertility) or to postpone childbearing. Cancer treatments like chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery can affect fertility, but there are methods to preserve it before starting these treatments.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

Drawing from her experience at Oxford University Hospital, UK, Dr. Bansal observed that women in Western nations commonly use HRT to alleviate menopausal symptoms. HRT replaces the hormones that decrease during menopause. In India, cultural and societal factors often influence treatment choices, and open, informed discussions between women and their doctors are crucial.

Preventive Oncology

Further, she added that preventive measures can play a major role in decreasing the risk of cancer. As stated by the World Health Organisation (WHO), modifying or avoiding specific risk factors could prevent 30-50% of cancer-related deaths.

In Dr. Bansal's words, "There is nothing black and white when talking about the treatment of gynaecological disorders and cancers. It's all a grey area where we still need to find the right shade."

Conclusion

The session with Dr. Priya Bansal was enlightening. It emphasised the importance of specialised care in women's healthcare. The advancements in robotic gynaecological surgery and fertility preservation provide hope and options for women facing serious health challenges. HRT and preventive oncology highlight the need for ongoing education and awareness to empower women to make informed health decisions.

We look forward to having such an informative session again!
