Prior to a laparoscopy diagnosis, your doctor may assess the condition of your abdominal wall and peritoneal cavity to determine your readiness for the procedure. They could also ask you to carry out routine bloodwork or imaging tests, and fast prior to the procedure.
The procedure is carried out under general anaesthesia, and your laparoscopic gynaecologist will use a laparoscopic camera to study your lower abdomen. They will be able to examine your uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, bladder and bowel. A biopsy may be carried out if required - that is, a small sample of tissue may be extracted during the laparoscopy for further diagnosis.
Gynaecologic Laparoscopy is a hybrid surgical approach that has become a popular alternative to open surgery. While open surgery usually requires a larger incision, laparoscopy involves the use of a laparoscope to examine your pelvic or abdominal area. If you are experiencing pelvic pain, have a history of pelvic infection or are facing infertility issues, then laparoscopy may be the way to go.
