How laparoscopy is performed for Endometriosis?

  • A laparoscope is an endoscope that is a tubular, slender metallic, lighted telescope.

  • Laparoscopy is an indoor basis procedure. You have to get admitted for laparoscopy.
  • Anaesthesia- is performed under general anaesthesia. So patients get back to their senses in 4-5 hours.
    You have to be nill by mouth for at least 12 hours.
  • After all procedure work. The surgeon makes tiny incisions and inflate the abdomen then insert laparoscope with the camera to visualize cavity. Many times these laparoscopes are equipped with laparoscopic suction irrigation pump to wash and clean areas to visualize. Normal saline is put inside with the help of irrigation pump and then with laparoscopic suction pump, it is taken out.
  • During laparoscopic surgery, a mini instrument is inserted in another incision. To wash the bleeding during surgery laparoscopic suction irrigation pump is very useful to have a clear image on the monitor. Your surgeon, may cut, remove tissue (excision) or burn it with a laser beam or electrocautery.
