Laparoscopy & Hysteroscopy
Today hysterolaparoscopy forms an integral part of gynecologic surgery for the diagnosis and treatment of abdominal and pelvic disorders of female reproductive organs.
Today, when fertility surgery is indicated, operative laparoscopy results in better outcomes and is associated with a shorter hospital stay and much faster recovery.
It is considered to be the gold standard as it provides not only a panoramic and magnified view of the pelvic and abdominal organs but also the opportunity to perform extensive surgery.The patency of the tubes is checked at the same time by injecting a dye. Certain abnormalities like fibroids, endometriosis, adhesions etc. can also be treated at the same time (operative laparoscopy).
Hysteroscopy is the process of inserting a hysteroscope into the vagina and through the cervix in order to examine the uterine cavity. A hysteroscope is a thin, tube-like device equipped with a light and a camera used to produce real-time video of the uterus.
A hysteroscopy is performed to diagnose and/or treat problems of the uterus that may be the cause of infertility. A hysteroscopy can also be used to remove fibroids or polyps from the uterus.
