Laparoscopic or Key-hole surgery involves inserting a thin viewing device into the woman’s abdomen so that the doctor can view the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries directly. It plays a pivotal role in assessment and treatment of endometriosis, chocolate cysts, blocked tubes and fibroids.
The uterus, or womb, is located low in a woman’s abdomen, and is where she nurtures a growing baby until it reaches full term. A hysteroscope is a thin, lighted tube with a camera at the end that allows the doctor to examine the inside lining of your uterus (endometrium) to detect the cause of abnormalities, like unusual bleeding. A hysteroscopy at Dr. Sunita’s IVF can help detect and treat problems with your uterus that may be preventing you from becoming pregnant. Hysteroscopy is often a vital tool in your fertility evaluation, and can offer a non-invasive alternative to traditional and laser surgery.
Laparoscopy requires only “key-hole” sized incisions on the abdomen, even to perform extensive surgeries like Ovarian Cystectomy or Hysterectomy. Thus, it has several advantages like Early recovery, Less pain, Lower infection rates and Cosmetically superior scars.
