Laparoscopy / Hysteroscopy
To diagnose a condition or device a treatment, a Laparoscopic procedure allows a surgeon to look into the pelvis for checking the Fallopian Tubes, Ovaries, or Uterus. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. The treatment is done using an instrument called a Laparoscope that looks into the organs. It is a long, thin tube that has a high-intensity light and a high-resolution camera that is inserted via an incision in the abdominal wall. The camera then sends the images to a video monitor so that doctors can see inside the body in real-time. Hysteroscopy, on the other hand, is done to view the inside of the uterus. Skin incisions, however, are not required in the case of Hysteroscopy. It examines the uterine cavity or any scarring, thereby helping in diagnosing abnormal uterine conditions.
