Laparoscopic surgery is also called Minimal Invasive Surgery (MIS), Band-Aid surgery or Keyhole Surgery. This is a modern surgical technique in which operations in the abdomen are performed through small incisions (usually 0.5 – 1.0 cm) as compared to larger incisions needed in traditional surgery procedures. Laparoscopy is a procedure that allows looking directly at the contents of a patient’s abdomen or pelvis, including the fallopian tubes, ovaries, uterus, small bowel, large bowel, appendix, liver, and gallbladder. Many advanced surgeries are now performed through laparoscopic procedures. Gynecological surgeries which commonly performed through Laparoscopy procedure are :
– Removal of ovarian cyst and tumours.
– Treatment of endometriosis/chocolate cyst.
– Myomectomy or removal of fibroids.
– Hysterectomy [ removal of uterus ].
– Sterilisation [tubal ligation].
– Ectopic pregnancy.
– Lysis of adhesions.
– Fertility investigation such as tubal studies.
– Diagnosis and treatment of uterine anomalies.
– Tube-tubal anastomasis (Tubal recanalisation).
– Creation of non-vagina.
– Some micro surgical & rare gynecological procedures are also performed by laparoscopy.
All the above procedures can be carried out at IHR.
