Gynaecological laparoscopy is an alternative to open surgery and can be done as a diagnostic procedure to accurately diagnose patients or as a treatment for various gynaecological conditions. Under anaesthesia, through a small incision in the navel, a narrow tube with a camera at the end is inserted into the abdominal cavity, after inflation of carbon dioxide. The camera will then show images of the internal organs so that your gynaecologist can get a better view of the inside of your reproductive organs. From this Dr, Lerm can diagnose and treat your condition more comprehensively. Laparoscopy is preferred over open surgery and can be used to remove ovarian cysts and fibroids, perform a hysterectomy or endometrial ablation. It may also be used as a diagnostic procedure to find the cause of unexplained pelvic pain, infertility, endometriosis, pelvic abscess and reproductive cancers.
