Diagnostic Laparoscopy

What is laparoscopy?

This is a surgical procedure performed under general anaesthesia. It involves passing a fine telescope general through the umbilical (belly button) area to view the abdomen and the pelvic region.

There may be two to three tiny cut about one to two centimetres just below the belly button and by the bikini line.

Carbon dioxide gas is normally used to distend the abdomen before viewing the pelvis or abdomen and before the operative procedure commences.

Why laparoscopy?

This is performed to look closely at the womb, fallopian tubes, ovaries, check if the tubes are open (dye test) in infertility investigation, check for plausible causes of pelvic pain, to treat endometriosis, ovarian cysts, for some fibroids, and for hysterectomy in certain situation where the indication permits.
Information regarding the procedure will be offered to you following consultation or
before surgery.
