FACULTY OF MEDICINE & HEALTH SCIENCES

WOMEN HEALTH CLINIC AND INFERTILITY UNIT

This clinic has officially operated since September 2016 under the care of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (O&G) Department, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, UNIMAS. Women’s health is our main concern and we aim to provide a specialist level check-up for UNIMAS staffs, students and also to the public. To date, the clinic has received more than 300 patients per year, hence the staff are very experienced in providing clinical services.

Services and procedures provided by the clinic are as follows:

  1. Antenatal check-up and consultation
  2. Gynaecological problem consultation and pelvic scan
  3. Colposcopy clinic
  4. Pap smear and Visual Inspection of Acetic acid (VIA)
  5. Infertility check-up and intrauterine insemination (IUI)

Antenatal Check-up and Consultation

For antenatal care, the clinic also provides antenatal consultation in addition to the government’s Mother and Child Healthcare Clinic (Klinik Kesihatan Ibu dan Anak). High risk cases will be follow-up closely at our clinic by a specialist and will be referred to Sarawak General Hospital accordingly. Meanwhile, for low risk cases, patients are free to choose either to deliver at a private healthcare centre or government hospital. We are also conducting Dewi project, which provides pre-pregnancy care for all diabetic mother that wished to conceive and their successful pregnancy will be follow-up closely by our team until delivery.

Gynaecological problem consultation and pelvic scan

Having menstrual problem? We also provide gynaecology consultation as our clinic is equipped with a pelvic scan. Any gynaecological problem that requires surgical intervention will be sent to Serian Hospital or Sarawak General Hospital for further treatment under the care of the UNIMAS team. This is to ensure the continuation of care for our patients which is important for us.

Pap smear and Visual Inspection of Acetic Acid (VIA)

Cervical cancer can be life-threatening if it goes undetected or untreated; hence it is the team’s mission to detect it early via providing conventional Pap smear by our trained staff. Apart from that, our team are experienced in performing Visual Inspection of Acetic Acid (VIA) which is the first to be done in Malaysia. VIA is superior compared to conventional Pap smear as it gives higher sensitivity for pre-cancerous cervical lesion. It also gives instant result on the spot, which enable us to triage patient for urgent colposcopy or perform biopsy to confirm the diagnosis. As cervical cancer is prevalent in rural area, we work hand in hand with Pink and Teal EmpowHer (NGO) group to fight cervical cancer by providing VIA services to the rural community in Sarawak.

Colposcopy Clinic

We also accept colposcopy referrals for low risk cases such as ASCUS, LGSIL and Inflammatory smear from Kuching, Serian, Kota Samarahan, Simunjan and Kota Sentosa area. The colposcopy will be done by our experienced consultant every Thursday and biopsy will be taken for any suspicious lesions. For now, abnormal colposcopy findings that need surgical intervention will be sent to Serian Hospital or Sarawak General Hospital.

Infertility Check-up and Intrauterine Insemination

Apart from the services mentioned previously, our clinic also provides fertility treatment such as fertility scan and IUI procedure by a well-trained nurse and an experienced andrologist. We had few successful pregnancies after IUI procedure via our clinic. Cases that require further treatment such as IVF will be referred to other infertility centre for continuation of care.
