Patients having laparoscopic surgery will have a small incision inside the umbilicus, and may have other small (less than 1cm) incisions over the abdomen. These small incisions allow the passage of a camera and special instruments into the abdomen, allowing the surgery to be performed.
Laparoscopy can be used to perform:
• Evaluations for pelvic pain
• Treat endometriosis
• Remove ovarian cysts
• Permanent sterilisation
• Laparoscopically hysterectomy
