Laparoscopy allows us to perform minimally invasive procedures without making a large incision. Sometimes referred to as “minimally invasive surgery”, laparoscopic surgery only requires a few small incisions.
Through these incisions, a thin video laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen which allows us to see your pelvic organs. Laparoscopic surgery is used in gynecology for the evaluation of endometriosis, pelvic pain, fibroids, ovarian cysts, infertility as well as permanent sterilization.
Because laparoscopy is less invasive, it has many benefits over open abdominal surgery especially because you usually can go home within a few hours and get back to your normal activities.
