Diagnostic And Operative Hysterolaparoscopy


Hysteroscopy and laparoscopy are also called as minimally invasive surgeries. Hysteroscopy involves insertion of a telescope attached to a camera through the cervix inside the uterus to visualize the inside of the uterus. It is generally done as a diagnostic tool before IVF and also to remove any pathology like fibroids, polyps, adhesions and septum.
Laparoscopy on the other hand involves insertion of telescope attached to a camera through a small 1 cm cut made near the bellybutton. It can also be used as a diagnostic tool to check whether the fallopian tubes are open and also used for operative purposes like removal of fibroid, operating endometriosis, adhesions etc. The benefits of laparoscopy are that they have a small scar, they are painless and there is an early recovery and patients resume their work soon.
