Dr Gopalan Poovalingam


Melbourne Gynaecology

Advanced Gynaecology and Urogynaecology Laparoscopic and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgeon

Dr Gopalan Poovalingam is a gynaecologist with a special interest in urogynaecology, minimal invasive advanced laparoscopy and hysteroscopy surgery. He is one of the very few leading gynaecologists in Melbourne who practices Rapid Recovery after Gynaecological Surgery (RRGS) improving outcomes of surgery and increasing the patient's satisfaction.

He is a great believer in minimal invasive surgery (MIS) (laparoscopy) and avoids open surgery as far as possible, even when dealing with more complex cases like very large uterine fibroids or advanced endometriosis. His vast experience in MIS when coupled with RRGS program leads to patients with a shorter hospital stay, drastic reduction in complications like DVT and hospital acquired infections. Most of his patients return home within 24 hours and back to their normal routines within days of the procedure, including driving.

He does not practice Obstetrics, thus allowing him to concentrate thoroughly in both general gynaecological and urogynaecological disorders.

For more than a decade, Gopalan has provided women with high quality gynaecological services. His competency in performing a wide range of complex surgeries has earned him the respect in the areas of total laparoscopic hysterectomy, laparoscopic and hysteroscopic myomectomy (uterine fibroids), laparoscopic surgery for advanced endometriosis, laparoscopic and vaginal prolapse surgeries (sacrocolpopexy and sacrohysteropexy) and minimal invasive incontinence surgery.

His areas of interest include:

  • Menorrhagia / abnormal per vaginal bleeding
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis adenomyosis
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Vaginal prolapse
  • Ovarian pathology
  • Infertility
  • Pelvic pain
  • Menopausal issues
  • Contraception / sterilisation
  • Recurrent UTI

For your patients' convenience, Gopalan consults and operates widely throughout Melbourne. Locations include but are not limited to Essendon, Parkville, Sunbury, Footscray, Coburg, Gisborne & Werribee
