Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure that permits the doctor to look inside the pelvis like fallopian tubes, ovaries and uterus. It helps in diagnosing and treating the reproductive problems. Patients are advised to rest after laparoscopy and allowed to go home after few hours.
Laparoscopy is done to diagnose the following medical conditions:-
Cysts: Cysts are formed due to hormonal imbalances, female reproductive problems or other medical issues. Cysts are clearly screened through laparoscopy.
Adhesions: An adhesion is a band of scar tissue formed in response to body’s repair mechanism.
Fibroids: Fibroids are defined as non-cancerous tumors that grow from the muscle layers of the womb.
