What is Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery?

Some women will need surgical procedures to diagnose and treat certain conditions. Advanced laparoscopic surgery is a procedure that allows our healthcare providers to view the abdominal and pelvic organs through small incisions.

Using an instrument called a laparoscope, a tiny camera is inserted through the incision to help your provider diagnose and treat any related issues. If additional tools are needed during the procedure, they can be inserted through the same incision without adding to your recovery time.

Medical Uses

Laparoscopic surgery can be used to diagnose and treat the following conditions:

  • Endometriosis
  • Fibroids
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Pelvic floor disorders
  • Cancer

Along with diagnosing and treating chronic conditions, a laparoscopy can be used to perform tubal sterilization or a hysterectomy.

Procedure Benefits

Laparoscopic surgery is often referred to as minimally invasive surgery because it requires smaller incisions compared to other surgeries. It offers several benefits to the women we care for, including:

  • Reduced post-surgery pain
  • Reduced post-surgery recovery
  • Lower risk of infection and bleeding
  • Small incisions result in smaller scars
