Operative Laparoscopy

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. Because it is minimally invasive in nature, the laparoscopy side effects are minimal. Recovery from this procedure often occurs quickly. The recovery time after laparoscopy is usually two days or so after an operative laparoscopy has been performed.
