With the advent of cutting-edge technology, it has become a feasible option to perform ‘minimally invasive’ surgeries with precision and finesse. Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy are two such surgeries used to diagnose and cure certain female infertility conditions.
Laparoscopy is a procedure to look inside of the abdomen and pelvis using a laparoscope. This helps to see the ovaries, outside of the tubes and uterus and other organs inside the abdomen. The laparoscope is a special telescope to which a light source and camera is attached. It is about as thick as a pen and about 12 cm long.
Laparoscopy is commonly used to find the cause of symptoms such as abdominal pain, pelvic pain
as part of the investigation of infertility.
This involves putting in a telescope to see the inside of the womb.The tip of the tool is put inside the uterus and trawled gently. A light source and camera are attached to the tool. Hysteroscopy is usually done to determine the cause of abnormal bleeding and to remove growths in the uterus like fibroids & polyps. During the test, the doctor can find and treat the problem at the same time.
