What is Laparoscopy Endometriosis?

Laparoscopy is performed in our office under general anesthesia with minimal discomfort. It is a procedure by which the laparoscope (a telescope-like instrument) is placed through the umbilicus, allowing for visualization of the pelvic and abdominal cavity. Operative laparoscopy involves placement of the instrument through secondary incisions to correct conditions such as pelvic adhesions, blocked fallopian tubes, removal of endometriosis implants, and removal of ovarian cysts and endometriomas. Laser and electrocoagulation are utilized through laparoscopy.
