Laparoscopic Endometriosis Surgery


Laparoscopy is a medical procedure undertaken by the doctors to diagnose and remove mild to moderate endometriosis. Avoiding the problem of large abdominal incision, surgeons are believing in the process of insertion of a lighted viewing instrument called a laparoscope with the help of a small incision. If the surgeon needs more access, the surgeon can make two more small incisions. It is pretty much a low risk surgery and minimally invasive surgery. Typically operated under general anaesthesia, the Laparoscopic Endometriosis Surgery can remove cysts, implants, and scar tissue caused by endometriosis.
