Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery

In the past, most surgery involving the reproductive organs was done by laparotomy (a surgical procedure in which an incision is made in the abdomen). Now, many of these same procedures can be done through the laparoscope. There are many benefits to laparoscopy - a shorter hospital stay, smaller incisions, and a shorter recovery.

Laparoscopy can be used to treat endometriosis, ovarian cysts, ectopic pregnancy, adhesions and fibroids. It can also be used to evaluate infertility problems. An advanced laparoscopy can be done to remove the uterus (a hysterectomy).
