Need for Laparoscopy
Are you often disturbed by the pain in the abdominal or pelvic areas of your body? The imaging techniques such as ultrasound, CT scan or MRI scan failing to diagnose the sources for the pain?  This is when Laparoscopy, also known as diagnostic laparoscopy, comes into use. It is a surgical diagnostic procedure that is used to examine the organs inside the abdomen, uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries.. Being a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure it is opted by everyone for a closer examination of their abdomen.
The most common cause of blocked fallopian tubes is pelvic inflammatory disease known as PID.  The other likely causes of blocked fallopian tubes include STD infection, specifically Chlamydia or Gonorrhea, or due to uterine infection caused by an abortion or miscarriage.

Laparoscopy surgery uses a thin, lighted tube put through a small cut or incision in the belly area to look at the abdominal organs or the female pelvic organs.  It can also be used to take tissue samples for biopsy through the tube attached to the laparoscope.
Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure useful for the diagnosis and treatment of infertility, pelvic pain during menstruation, fibrous tissues developing in the wall of uterus, blocked fallopian tubes and ovarian cyst. Laparoscopy allows the surgeon to directly view the uterus, tubes, ovaries, other organs and the pelvic cavity in general for detailed inspection and diagnosis. The procedure can take around 20 minutes to 2 hours. This depends upon how much operative or corrective work is required on the patient and hence can differ for each individual based on their health condition. A complicated case could take up to 4 hours or more.
The woman is normally discharged from the hospital soon after completion of the surgery but will need to take off from work for an additional 1-2 days following the procedure. There will be mild to moderate pain that can last up to 7 days or so after the procedure.
With a laparoscope, the surgeon can also fix problems in gallbladder, liver, small and large bowel, pancreas, liver, stomach and spleen.
It is also important to watch for any signs of infection post surgery . Contact your doctor if you experience intense stomach ache, chills, fever, inability to urinate, lightheadedness, shortness of breath and persistent cough.
