Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy
Laparoscopy and hysteroscopy are two of the most common procedures we utilize to correct problems that cause infertility and miscarriage.
A laparoscopy involves one incision in the belly button and one to three others in the lower belly. These are a half-inch or less, which is much smaller than what’s required in an open surgery. A small camera is placed through one of these incisions. This allows visualization of the abdominal and pelvic cavities, the ovaries and fallopian tubes, and the outside of the uterus. The surgeon can then make surgical corrections to the pelvic structures that are damaged or abnormal.
Laparoscopy is a less-invasive procedure than open abdominal surgery and allows for a quicker recovery with a lower risk of scar tissue formation. Most patients go home the same day as the procedure and return to work a few days later.
