Minimally Invasive Procedure
Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure used for infertility treatments. It is used for the diagnosis and treatment of blocked fallopian tubes and for uterine and ovarian pathologies
A laparoscope is a long, thin tube that has a high-intensity light and resolution camera in front of it. It helps in the visualization of the pelvic and abdominal organs, including the ovaries, uterus, and fallopian tubes. The number and size of incisions are based on the pathology the doctor is trying to rule out
Laparoscopic surgery is suggested for treating infertility when other tests have not resulted in a conclusive diagnosis. For this, and many other unexplained reasons, laparoscopic surgery is recommended to women who are infertile. The doctors can identify the cause of infertility with the help of laparoscopy. Laparoscopic surgery helps in diagnosing and treating issues such as fibroid tumors, scar tissues, endometriosis, and other abnormalities of the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes
