Bartholin's Cyst Treatment

+ More
  • This procedure treats a Bartholin's cyst through incision and drainage. A Bartholin's cyst is a small fluid filled sac just inside the vagina.

The cyst ranges in size and generally varies between the size of a pea, to the size of marble. If the Bartholin's cyst becomes infected, it is usually referred to as a Bartholin's abscess and generally requires drainage.

  • 2 - 3 days

    It is usually safe to fly afterwards, but depending on the type of procedure, there may be a follow up visit required - e.g. to remove a drainage catheter.

    The surgery went well, there have been a lot of extra fees which the group here are fighting about. Like extra room fees. And I had a blood transfusion which was super expensive! But other than that, things are fine, the staff is very helpful and the nurses were great.

    I selected KCM clinic in order to proceed with a gastric sleeve. Even if the there is a small language barrier with the nurses, I was relatively satisfied of the overall services, the explanations, and the friendliness of the staff.

    Moreover, everything was planned in advance. Therefore, upon my arrival all exams, surgery, and aftercare were always precise and on time!

    I definitely recommend KCM clinic for any medical journey.

    Fast, professional, friendly (too friendly??), also very commercial! I'm very satisfied, but be sure you get what you want. The solution offered was for me the best, and so I'm more than pleased!
    I'm used to Dutch dental healthcare... I consider this more (cost-) effective with similar professional result.

    Great facilities in an otherwise "out of the way" place. It just happened to be on my intended touring route. Very helpful and friendly staff.

The clinic was visited by a member of the MEDIGO Team

I found the clinic easily, travelling there by car from a nearby hotel. The city of Jelenia Gora is relatively small (it has around 80,000 residents) but attractive and the mountain backdrop is stunning. The clinic is a complex of two buildings, with a really nice mix of old and new architecture. The rooms and corridors in the clinic are spacious with large windows, and the surroundings are very nice. The equipment was all top class and the staff were very helpful, with great team spirit.
