Q. Doctor has advised me to get laparoscopy done as I have been suffering abdominal pain. What is it?
A. In laparoscopy, the surgeon makes a small incision just below the navel and a long narrow ‘torch’ is inserted. The abdominal wall is lifted up with the help of gas so that the womb, uterus and fallopian tubes can be seen clearly. Biopsies can be taken of different tissues to carry out the sterilization with the help of instruments that can be passed through laparoscope. It is basically helps the surgeon to look into your abdomen to check what exactly is the problem. the incision is so small that it can be closed by just one stitch. This kind of surgery causes minimum trauma and blood loss. Patient can be discharged in 2-3 days.
