Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology is a specialised discipline within the broader realm of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, dedicated exclusively to addressing the reproductive health challenges confronting our young and adolescent population.
At King’s College Hospital London, Dubai, we recognise the delicacy required when raising gynaecological matters with our younger patients. Thus, we strive tirelessly to cultivate a nurturing and safe haven wherein our British-board-certified expert treat each individual with respect, empathy, and sincere attentiveness, backed by cutting-edge knowledge.
Here are some of the common conditions we address and how we can help:
- Menstrual Disorders: If your daughter is finding adolescence unsettling due to irregular or heavy periods, our specialists are here to help. We use thorough evaluations and create personalised care plans to help her regain control over these charges and minimise distress.
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): PCOS can affect young girls, leading to hormonal imbalances and the formation of small cysts in the ovaries. If your child is experiencing symptoms such as irregular periods, excessive hair growth, or weight gain, we strongly encourage setting an appointment with a doctor who can help the patient manage and even prevent the potential health complications of this condition.
- Congenital Anomalies: These are gynaecological conditions present at birth that involve the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, or vaginal canal. These anomalies may not become apparent until adolescence. Therefore, don’t hesitate to seek our expert care if you suspect your child might have a congenital anomaly. Our specialists are highly skilled in diagnosing and treating these conditions, ensuring your child’s comfort and health.
- Vulvovaginal Conditions: These conditions affect the external female genitalia or the vagina and can cause discomfort, pain, itching, or irritation. If a young adult is experiencing these symptoms, it is advisable to schedule an appointment with a specialist immediately. We are adept at treating these conditions to alleviate discomfort and enhance your child’s overall well-being.
- Puberty issues: Puberty is an intricate and dynamic process, marking a significant biological and psychological transition from childhood to adolescence. If your child is experiencing puberty at an unusually early or late stage compared to their peers, or if you notice signs of irregular growth spurts, it is crucial to evaluate and devise individualised solutions that cater to their unique needs.
- Hormonal conditions: Unregulated hormone levels or conditions like hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, adrenal disorders, or pituitary disorders manifest in various symptoms, including unexpected weight fluctuations, mood swings, and skin issues. If you notice any such changes in your child, it’s time to consult our expert team, who are adept in advanced diagnostic techniques to assess and manage these imbalances, optimising your child’s health.
Remember, early detection and intervention are key to managing these conditions effectively. If your child is experiencing any of the above symptoms, we are here to help. Trust our dedicated team at King’s College Hospital London, Dubai, to guide you and your child on optimal health.
