What is a Laparoscopy?

A Laparoscopy is a modern surgical technique in which a specialized camera, along with other specialized tools, are inserted into the abdomen through small holes 0.5-1.5 mm in diameter and the abdomen is filled with carbon dioxide. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and the surgeon performs the operation through a screen that projects the intra-abdominal organs.

Advantages over classic surgery are:

  • Less recovery time after surgery
  •  Less pain due to short incision length
  •  Less bleeding

Laparoscopic surgeries can be:

  • Οvarian cyst
  • Hose due to hydrothorax: precedes IVF because you increase the chances of pregnancy and reduce miscarriage
  • Tubal ligation for contraception
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Endometriosis: is the presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterus (in the ovary, intra-abdominal space). It negatively affects fertility but does not prevent all women from conceiving. Cauterization of endometriosis foci in combination with drug therapy gives good results.
  • Solution of intra-abdominal adhesions
  • Trumpet patency control
  • Parathyroid cysts
  • Auxiliary, in hysteroscopic surgeries
  • Fibroids
  • Hysterectomy
