The laparoscopy procedure is a key hole surgery that provides a panoramic & magnified view of the pelvic organs. This medical procedure does not involve many risks and requires only a small incision. A laparoscopy procedure allows surgery at the time of diagnosis. In this blog by Dr. Manish Banker, let us understand the various health conditions for which a laparoscopy procedure can be done.
The laparoscopy surgeon makes a small cut of around 1-1.5 cm near the belly button after the anesthetists give general anaesthesia. A tube is inserted through the incision and gas is pumped through the tube to inflate the abdomen. A laparoscope is then inserted through this tube and it relays this image to a television monitor in the operating theatre, giving the surgeon a clear view of the whole area. A further incision can be made if surgical treatment is required. The incision is closed with stitches or clips and a dressing can be applied. In a laparoscopy procedure, the surgeon can also collect biopsy samples.
Endoscopic reproductive surgery intended to improve fertility may include surgery on the uterus, ovaries, pelvic peritoneum [fatty curtain over the pelvic organ], and fallopian tubes.
Why is a laparoscopy procedure done?
There are various reasons why a laparoscopy procedure is done. Here are some of the reasons:
Additionally, hysteroscopic guided biopsy and therapeutic procedures like polypectomy, septal resection, and adhesiolysis can be done in the same sitting by a laparoscopic surgeon.
To conclude, endoscopic surgery fulfils the important principles of gentle handling of tissue. The procedure is recommended as dissection of the skin is precise, leading to a very minimal skin incision. There are several reasons why laparoscopy procedures are performed, these are the main reasons. If you have any of these issues, do consult a fertility specialist such as Dr. Manish Banker, and understand all of your options.
