What is Laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy is a process through which the fertility doctor can check abnormalities that might interfere with a woman’s ability to conceive. It is a day-care surgical procedure which involves inserting a small telescope through small incision which is made below the belly button and another above the pubic bone. This enables the doctor to visualize the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries.

What are the advantages of laparoscopy for infertility?

There are numerous benefits of Laparoscopic surgical treatment. The primary advantage is that the pain, as well as hemorrhaging, is lowered as the incisions are smaller and recovery is faster.

We, at Surya Fertility Centre, carry out a day-care laparoscopy treatment where the patient is admitted at 6 am and discharged by 6 pm on the same day.

Who should go for Laparoscopy? What are the indications for Laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy is recommended for women who have tubal block, ovarian cyst and fibroids. Women with severe PCOS undergo drilling of the ovaries.

How is Laparoscopy done?

Laparoscopy is performed under the influence of general anesthesia.

Once the anesthesia has taken effect, one small incision is also made below the belly button and another above the pubic bone and gas is filled into the abdomen; the telescope (laparoscope) is placed through the cut to examine uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries.

What are the risks associated with Laparoscopy

Every surgical procedure has risks. The risks associated with laparoscopy are quite small. There might be minor complications due to anesthesia or the surgical procedure.

Bruising: Around 2 in every 100 patients experience bruising around the belly button. This usually settles on its own. However, there are 1-1.2% chances that it can become infected and may require antibiotics.

Damage to internal organs: 1 in 1000 cases experience damage to internal organs such as bowel or bladder due to the needle or telescope. If such an injury occurs, it is repaired through a larger incision in the abdomen. This created the hassle of a longer stay in the hospital, thereby increasing the recovery time.

Internal bleeding: Around 1 in every 5000 procedures experience internal bleeding due to damage to blood vessels. An extensive surgery is required to repair the vessels.

Developing a hernia: This is a very rare case, wherein the patient develops a hernia near the incision.
