What is it?

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that allows your doctor to examine the inside of your pelvis, including your fallopian tubes, uterus, ovaries, and womb. Imagine a tiny camera peeking through a keyhole to give your doctor a clear view of your internal organs.

What is it used for?

Laparoscopy has two main uses:

1. Diagnosis:

  • Identifying the cause of unexplained infertility
  • Investigating pelvic pain without a clear cause
  • Checking for blocked fallopian tubes
  • Evaluating past pelvic infections
  • Diagnosing endometriosis or uterine fibroids

    2. Treatment

  • Performing various surgeries through small incisions, leading to faster recovery and less scarring. This includes:
  • Removing the uterus (hysterectomy)
  • Removing ovaries or cysts
  • Removing fibroids
  • Controlling fibroid bleeding
  • Treating endometriosis
  • Removing adhesions
  • Reversing tubal ligation (sterilization)
  • Treating urinary incontinence
  • Repairing pelvic organ prolapse

    How is it done?

  • Preparation: You'll generally be under general anesthesia and have an empty bladder.
  • Procedure:
  • Carbon dioxide gas inflates your abdomen to create space and improve visibility.
  • A thin laparoscope with a camera is inserted through a small cut near your navel.
  • Images are displayed on a monitor for your doctor to examine your organs.
  • The procedure may involve.
  • Take tissue samples for diagnosis.
  • Perform surgery using additional small incisions and instruments guided by the laparoscope.
