A laparoscopy is a surgical procedure used by doctors to view a woman’s reproductive organs. A laparoscope (a thin viewing tube with a video camera) is passed through a small incision in the abdomen to look at the outside of the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes and surrounding organs. This is a minimally invasive procedure, requiring minimal hospital stay with a faster recovery time than open surgery.

There are different types of laparoscopic treatment, which includes:

  • Hysterectomy or removal of the uterus
  • Removal of ovarian cysts and fibroids
  • Evaluation of infertility
  • Adhesion clearance
  • Clearance of endometriotic cysts
  • Reversal of tubal ligation in case the patient would like to conceive
  • Permanent sterilisation surgery

Why get a laparoscopy?

Your gynecologist may recommend this procedure to:

  • Confirm the cause of a condition when other diagnostic tests such as ultrasound cannot.
  • Find the cause of pelvic pain.
  • Examine a tissue mass by biopsy , removal of cysts and fibroids.
  • Look for blockage of the fallopian tubes or other causes of infertility.
  • Confirm and treat endometriosis.

You will be required to fast for at least 8 hours before the procedure. Admission to the hospital will be done at 6am on the day of surgery.Oral pre-medication is given the night before to clean the bowel contents to facilitate the surgery

You will be given general anesthesia to relax your muscles and prevent pain. A 10 mm umbilical surgical incision for the telescope and 2.5 mm surgical incisions for laparoscopic instruments will be made on the left side/ right side of the abdomen for the surgery.

A laparoscope will be inserted and the abdomen inflated to view your organs. The view is magnified 10 times and hence gives scope for a precise surgery.The laparoscopic instruments are used to perform the surgical steps.The relevant tissue is removed piecemeal after placing the tissue in a sterile endobag through the 10mm incision.A single or no stitch is placed at the entry points.All important surgical steps are documented for future reference.

IV fluids, antibiotics, antacids and pain relief medications are given during the first 24 hours after the surgery. Around 6 to 8 hours after surgery, oral liquids will be given followed by a diet of soft food. You will be able to walk around 12 after surgery.

After 1 to 2 days, you will be sent home with pain relief medication, antibiotics, antacid medication and advice on diet. After the procedure, you may do regular minor household chores, bathing, climbing steps, and walking around in the house.

One week after the procedure an OPD visit with the consultant ObGyn is a must, during which your histopathology report will be reviewed in relevant cases. Further treatment of the diagnosed condition will also be decided upon.
