Diagnostic Laparoscopy

Diagnostic Laparoscopy

Diagnostic laparoscopy is a minor surgical procedure that visualizes the abdominal and pelvic cavity to evaluate and treat gynecologic and reproductive medicine abnormalities. It is done as an out-patient under general anesthesia, by inserting a small rigid viewing telescope, known as a laparoscope, through the belly button umbilicus and into the abdomen. Frequently, one or two additional incisions are made right above the pubic bone, to insert additional instruments, in order to be able to "operate" and remove underlying pathology, like an ovarian cysts, endometriosis/endometrioma, pelvic adhesions and scar tissue, and many times just for evaluating the pelvis in a woman who is having trouble getting pregnant.
