How Laparoscopy Is Done

Laparoscopy lets the doctor see your reproductive organs close up. After you are given the anesthesia, small incisions are made in your abdomen. This way, the laparoscope and other surgical tools can be inserted to perform the procedure.

A Closer Look

Your doctor needs to see your reproductive organs clearly during surgery. To do this, your abdomen is inflated with carbon dioxide gas or another type of gas. Sometimes, a device is inserted in the vagina to lift the uterus. This helps your doctor see your organs better while looking at them on a screen.

Risks and Complications of Surgery

Before laparoscopy, your doctor can explain the possible risks and complications. They include:

  • Infection

  • Bleeding

  • Damage to blood vessels, nerves, muscles, or nearby pelvic structures

  • Risks of anesthesia

  • Blood clots

  • The need for a larger incision
