How Laparoscopy Is Done

Laparoscopy is a type of surgical procedure. It lets the doctor see your reproductive organs close up. After you are given anesthesia, small incisions are made in your abdomen. A laparoscope is used. This is a long, thin tube with a camera on the end that sends pictures to a video screen. It is put through one small incision. The surgeon can see inside the body. Surgical tools are put through the other incisions.

A Closer Look

Your doctor needs to see clearly during surgery. To do this, your abdomen is inflated with a harmless gas. A device may be inserted into the vagina to lift the uterus. This helps your doctor see your organs better through the scope.

Risks and Complications of Surgery

These may include:

  • Infection

  • Bleeding

  • Damage to blood vessels, nerves, muscles, or nearby pelvic structures

  • Risks of anesthesia

  • Blood clots

  • Need for a larger incision
