Operative laparoscopy involves the use of a specialized camera to diagnose and treat pelvic conditions in women. Operative laparoscopy can be used to evaluate infertility and is sometimes used together with hysteroscopy.
What Is Laparoscopy & How Can It Help in the Treatment of Infertility?
Laparoscopy is a procedure in which a laparoscope (a fiber-optic camera) is used to view internal organs. A small insertion is made through the wall of the abdomen and the laparoscope is inserted. If a tissue sample is needed, a biopsy can be performed using the laparoscope, as well.
Operative laparoscopy can help identify certain conditions that hinder a woman’s ability to become pregnant so a path to treatment can be formed.
