What is Laparoscopy? It is a routine procedure that uses thin lighted cables with high resolution cameras to look at organs in the abdomen or female pelvis. It is a minimally invasive, Day-Care procedure.

Why is Laparoscopy done? It is used for investigation and for treatment. Diagnostic Laproscopy is done to see if there are any tubal blocks, adhesions, or to see if the uterus is appearing normal. If something is abnormal, it can be treated then and there by surgical laparoscopy.
