Laparoscopy is performed under general anesthesia with minimal discomfort. It is a procedure by which the laparoscope (a telescope-like instrument) is placed through the umbilicus, allowing for visualization of the pelvic and abdominal cavity. Operative laparoscopy involves placement of the instrument through secondary incisions to correct conditions such as pelvic adhesions, blocked fallopian tubes, removal of endometriosis implants, and removal of ovarian cysts and endometriomas. Laser and electrocoagulation are utilized through laparoscopy.
When we perform laparoscopy at Gynescope, we assess the tubes, outside of the uterus and other pelvic and abdominal organs with this rigid telescope-like instrument passed usually through the umbilicus (navel). Major surgeries can also be carried out through this pin hole with minimal scar and quick recovery and discharge.
