What Is A Laparoscopy London?
Laparoscopy is the medical term for keyhole surgery. This is where the surgeon makes very small cuts and then uses a small camera to perform the procedure. This type of surgery has a much shorter recovery time than traditional surgery.
In gynaecological laparoscopy, the surgeon will make cuts in your lower stomach. This allows the surgeon to see the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. This can be used for diagnosis or treatment of some conditions.
When Do You Need A Laparoscopy?
To use it for diagnosis, the camera is used to get a good look at your reproductive organs. The surgeon will then look for any signs of illness. It is possible to detect growths and tumours this way. The surgeon can take a small sample for testing during your surgery. The procedure can check for any problems that might be preventing you from getting pregnant. Doctors also use the procedure to investigate the causes of abdominal pain.
