Laparoscopic surgery

Laparoscopy of a procedure that used to examine inside of the abdominal (belly) and pelvic cavities, using an instrument called laparoscope. Is it a “minimal invasive” surgery that used often in gynecology under a general anesthesia.

 

These are conditions associated with the laparoscopic surgery in gynecology:

  • Assess painful or heavy periods

  • Infertility of women

  • Abnormalities in uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes

  • Other organs for which is difficult to diagnose through the X Rays and etc.

  • Pelvic pain, pelvic inflammatory disease

  • Fibroids

  • Endometriosis

 

For the above-mentioned conditions, laparoscopic procedure helps to identify the exact cause of the pain and helps to organize more efficient treatment plan. During the procedure, your doctor will make a small-cut on abdomen, usually just below the belly button and insert a laparoscope (a tube with the small camera at the end). Pictures that were taken by the camera are transmitted into the larger screen that surgeon uses to view.  Also, in some conditions, a special contrast dye could be injected prior the procedure in order to get a visually better view, for example a fallopian tubes. After the procedure, your doctor will close the cut with the stitches and apply bandage
