Gynaecological check-ups and preventative screening:

• Papsmeer
• Gynaecological ultrasound
• Breast examination
• Unfortunately Mammograms and bone density scans are not being done in Ermelo Mediclinic anymore, due to the Radiologist not coming here. This have to be done elsewhere now with a referral letter (closest: Trichardt, Witbank, Middelburg)

Pregnancy check-ups and sonars:

• The pregnancy check ups include monitoring of the mother and the baby:
• Mother: general counselling, checking her blood pressure, urine, glucose, weight and general wellbeing.
• Fetus: Sonar to monitor the growth and wellbeing of the baby, this is being done at every visit.

 Dr Foster will not be doing abnormality scanning anymore, this has to be done at a Gynaecologist or at fetal medicine centre in Pretoria.

Unfortunately dr Foster will not be doing deliveries in the maternity lodge or in Mediclinic anymore.

4-D Sonars:

Dr Foster will guide you through the scan, with your baby image using 4D ultrasound
The best time to have the scan is between 26 and 32 weeks pregnancy.
Our focus is on the total bonding experience. Our ultrasound scans will be able to demonstrate images of your baby moving around, as well as defined areas such as the face, hands and feet. You may see your baby yawning, waving and even kicking!
We will be able to tell you the gender of your baby, if requested.

 

 

But please remember that this scan is non diagnostic and does not replace any of your diagnostic medical ultrasouds or guidance of your medical practitioner.
Be sure to book in time!

Infertility Screening:

With infertility we have a basic screening. We start with taking a thorough history, doing a papsmeer, an ultrasound of the pelvic organs and blood tests. If anything is detected here we start with treatment.
The next step is a hysterosalpingogram (HSG scan), this is to determine the patency of your tubes. (If any problems is suspected) This have to be done in Trichardt or Middelburg as it is not being done in Ermelo anymore.
If we detect any major abnormalities or you need IVF or any other special infertility treatment we refer you to a specialised infertility clinic for further treatment.

Integrative medicine:

We combine Solal medicine and medicine being specially compounded to help your body to be in a state of hormonal balance for optimum health.

Menopause treatment :

We first do a full gynaecological examination, then a proper questionnaire should be filled. You then go for a hormone workup of your bloods at the lab, with the results and examinations we then put you on hormone treatment to just supplement to lift the hormones into a good balance. We only use natural bio-identical progesterone, estrogen and testosterone creams that you apply on the inside of the arm.

• Insertion of the Copper-T and Mirena intra-uterine contraceptive devices. (We keep the Nova-T and the Mirena in stock)
