Laparoroscopic Surgery For Endometriosis (PCO)

If you are considering laparoroscopic surgery for endometriosis (PCO) in China and would like to get know more information about laparoroscopic surgery for endometriosis (PCO), please complete the inquiry form or email us at info@shmtppp.com

Overview

Laparoscopy is the most common procedure used to diagnose and remove mild to moderate endometriosis. Endometriosis is the growth of endometrial tissue-which normally lines the uterus-in other parts of the body. Instead of using a large abdominal incision, the surgeon inserts a lighted viewing instrument called a laparoscope through a small incision to remove any visible endometriosis implants and scar tissue that may be causing pain or infertility.

Your doctor may recommend a laparoscopy to:

  • View the internal organs to look for signs of endometriosis and other possible problems. This is the only way that endometriosis can be diagnosed with certainty.
  • Remove any visible endometriosis implants and scar tissue that may be causing pain or infertility. If an endometriosis cyst is found growing on an ovary (endometrioma), it is likely to be removed.

Precaution

You will be advised not to eat or drink for at least 8 hours before a laparoscopy. Laparoscopy is usually done under general anesthesia, although you can stay awake if you have local or spinal anesthesia. A gynecologist or surgeon performs the procedure.

Procedure

For a laparoscopy, the abdomen is inflated with gas (carbon dioxide or nitrous oxide). The gas, which is injected with a needle, pushes the abdominal wall away from the organs so that the surgeon can see them clearly. The surgeon then inserts a laparoscope through a small incision and examines the internal organs. Additional incisions may be used to insert instruments to move internal organs and structures for better viewing. The procedure usually takes 30 to 45 minutes.

If endometriosis or scar tissue needs to be removed, your surgeon may either cut and remove tissue (excision) or destroy it with a laser beam or electric current (electrocautery).

After the procedure, the surgeon closes the abdominal incisions with a few stitches. Usually there is little or no scarring.

Laparoscopy is usually done at an outpatient facility. Sometimes a surgery requires a hospital stay of 1 day. You will likely be able to return to your normal activities in 1 week, or maybe longer.
