Services Laparoscopy

Laparoscopy is a type of minimally invasive surgery. Using tiny incisions and a telescope-like tool called a laparoscope, our ObGyn doctors are able to look at your pelvic organs to diagnose or treat gynecologic concerns.

Laparoscopy is used to diagnose and treat many gynecologic conditions. If a concern is identified, it can often be treated during the same surgery.

Laparoscopic surgery uses a special tool, the laparoscope. It is a thin, lighted, teleoscope-like device with a camera on the end that is used to look at your pelvic organs through a tiny incision in your abdomen. This may be done with or without the da Vinci surgical robot.

Laparoscopic surgery benefits you in many ways: less pain, fewer complications, a shorter recovery time and return to normal activities more quickly.

Minimally invasive surgery using a laparoscope is common, safe and effective. However, like any medical procedure, there is a small risk of complications.

Talk with your doctor to learn more.
