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.

    My wife had C-section last week in this hospital. Initially we were tensed and worried but Dr. Shameem Mir & her team made it all easy and simple. She is one of the best gynecologist doctor in UAE. All facilities in hospital are very nice , staff is very caring and helpful. I am very happy that we chose prime Hospital for her surgery. I will recommend this hospital to other people because this is best hospital in UAE where everything is so professional and with good results. The hospital has excellent services with extremely caring and supportive nurses (Elcy & Team) who were treating my new born and wife.

    We happened to take appointment of Dr Sajjad the dentist for my daughters tooth. Must say he is one of the most professional doctors you would come across. Brilliant with children and definitely with his work. Would recommend him and his skill with the teeth. My daughter is not scared of dentist anymore thanks to him.

    I visited the ER as I smashed my finger and I was in a lot of pain and Dr. Khan was excellent....He took care of me straight Away and he comforted me throughout the whole procedure (he removed only the blood from underneath my nail, instead of removing my whole nail, which was great)!. Once he finished the procedure, the whole pressure was released and my pain was gone....This is what I call professionalism and good patient care!
    Unfortunately, i can not say the same about the staff at the reception. As I was in a lot of pain, I asked how long it will take for the X-ray and the receptionist reply (Indian male looking) was: “There are 5-6 more patients waiting in a queue before you and we will let you know when you can go!”. Funny thing is that right after that Dr. Khan instructed them to take me to do the X-ray and there was NO ONE waiting in there! So I was told to wait in the reception while I was in pain, because the receptionist didn’t even make an effort to check with Radiology if I can go in straight away!!!!! The doctor himself showed more customer service skills than the receptionist! 5 starts for Dr. Khan, but 0 stars for the staff at the reception. They should be trained on how to deal with people that come there because they are suffering and they need medical care as soon as possible!!!!!
