Diagnostic Laproscopy involves vision into the abdomen through a small incision in the abdomen. Operative laproscopy in gynaecology involves performing surgeries, through small ports, approx one centimetre each. With the advancement in laproscopic instruments and expertise, nearly all gynaecological surgeries can be performed laproscopically, including cancer surgeries.
A high degree of precision is facilitated by the magnification provided.
Multiple studies have shown laparoscopy to be safer, less post- operative pain, and to have a shorter recovery time.
Extensive list of gynae laproscopic surgeries include diagnostic Laparoscopy for infertility and Laparoscopic Sterilization, Ovarian Cystectomy, ectopic pregnancy, hysterectomy ( removal of uterus), Re-canalization Surgery ( reversal of sterlizaion), Burch Suspension ( for stress urinary incontinence), Myomectomy ( removal of fibroid), Sacro-Colpopexy and hysteropexy ( for prolapse), Radical Laparoscopic Hysterectomy ( for cancer uterus and cervix), Pelvic Floor Repair, TVT and TOT & TVTO for Stress Urinary Incontinence, Laparoscopic Vesico-Vaginal Fistula Repair, Lymphadenectomy for Gynecological Malignancies, Laparoscopic uterine nerve ablation (LUNA) for chronic pelvic pain, Laparoscopic Management of severe Endometriosis
