Dr Alastair Morris is a highly skilled gynaecological surgeon that specialises in laparoscopic (minimally invasive) surgery which includes robotic surgery. Having undertaken a Fellowship in Advanced Gynaecological Laparoscopy, Dr Morris performs the more difficult and challenging procedures in this field. This includes excision of severe endometriosis, large ovarian cysts, and where appropriate hysterectomy and myomectomy.
He also has 30 years of experience delivering obstetric care and still practices this through his public appointment at Royal North Shore Hospital.
what We do
Dr Morris investigates and treats a wide variety of both common and more complex benign gynaecological issues. Problems that he routinely treats include endometriosis, heavy periods, ovarian cysts, fibroids, pelvic pain and abnormal cervical screening tests (previously know as a PAP smear).
Laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery is often used to investigate and treat gynaecological conditions. Dr Morris is a highly skilled gynaecological surgeon that specialise in this type of minimally invasive surgery. Benefits include less scarring, pain and a faster recovery back to normal activities.
Where appropriate, robotic assistance enables Dr Morris to offer patients an alternative way of performing operations that may make the surgery more efficient. The highly magnified 3D views of the surgical area and mobility of the robotic instruments enables him to perform complex and precise surgery that would have been more difficult otherwise. Benefits to patients can be faster recovery, reduced discomfort, reduced risk of infections and minimal scarring.
Hysteroscopy is a procedure used to inspect the inside of the uterus in order to diagnose or treat common gynaecological problems such as abnormal bleeding, fibroids or polyps. It may also be performed as part of the investigation of infertility. A thin ‘telescope’ is inserted through the cervix into the uterus which allows an image to be seen on a screen. This is almost always a day procedure.
If you have had an abnormal cervical screening test result you may have been advised to have a colposcopy. This is a close examination of the cervix using specialised equipment and helps guide further investigation and treatment. Dr Morris can perform a colposcopy in his rooms and then suggest what recommend treatment options may best be suited to you.
Dr Alastair Morris has 30 years of experience delivering obstetric care including pre-pregnancy counselling, antenatal care, discussion of screening options and management of labour. Following a successful private practice, he no longer delivers babies in the private sector but continues to help women have safe deliveries through the public sector at Royal North Shore Hospital.
