Dr Polyakov manages a complicated range of gynaecological, fertility and IVF issues. He is one of the few Melbourne doctors who can seamlessly combine his gynaecological and fertility expertise through procedures like myomectomies and hysterectomies through to minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery.
Dr Polyakov also offers his services as a reproductive endocrinologist in Melbourne. Reproductive endocrinology addresses hormonal functioning as it pertains to reproduction and infertility.
A minimally invasive procedure, endoscopic surgery is performed using an endoscope, which is a thin instrument with a camera and a light attached. Doctor Polyakov uses it in gynaecology and endoscopy to diagnose and treat conditions such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and polyps.
Laparoscopic surgery requires making a small incision in the abdomen through which the laparoscope will enter. This allows you to check for abnormalities in areas including the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes.
For tubal ligation or vasectomy reversal, you will need an experienced and steady-handed micro surgeon who can use the microscope to better manipulate stitches that must be finer than traditional stitches.
One of Dr Polyakov’s fertility specialities is andrology, which pertains to male reproductive issues and sexual dysfunction. Alex is experienced diagnosing and treating any problems with male fertility.
