What is a laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy is a surgical technique that enables the seeing and operating of organs located in the abdomen without opening the abdominal wall by introducing a mini-camera through the navel.

Why is this technique preferable?

This minimally invasive process gives the patient an advantage by comparison with a laparotomy (conventional opening of the abdominal wall) in terms of:

  • Pain: lower use of analgesics
  • Gets the patient back on their feet: earlier discharge, faster recovery
  • Cosmetics: almost invisible scars

What operations are achievable by laparoscopy?

Tubal sterilization – Tubal reversal

How is a laparoscopy done?

First, a laparoscopy requires general anesthesia. Once the patient is asleep, a harmless gas is injected gradually into the abdomen to create a workspace. A tiny incision is made in the navel through which the laparoscope (long thin tube that transmits what is happening inside the womb live on a television screen) is inserted. Two to three other small incisions are made in the lower abdomen through which surgical instruments like long fine forceps are passed.
