Gynecologic laparoscopy is a procedure that allows surgeons to look inside the patient’s pelvic region through smaller incisions to either diagnose a condition or for proceeding with treatments.
Why Laparoscopic Approach
The advantages of the laparoscopic approach involves efficient diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis or fibroids, removal of ovarian cyst, hysterectomy, ectopic pregnancy, carrying out female sterilization (surgery on fallopian tubes to prevent future pregnancy), staging and treatment of gynecologic cancers etc. Laparoscopic gynecological surgery is safer, less expensive, and has a shorter healing time.
After Laparoscopic Surgery…
Laparoscopic gynecological surgery is characterized with faster healing, which means the patient can mostly be back to normal activities within few days. Operating through small incisions reduces the discomfort that a person has to suffer after surgery. Performing surgery laparoscopically also reduce the chances of forming internal scar tissue (adhesions) after surgery.
