Laparoscopy, also commonly referred to as keyhole surgery, is integral to the state-of-the-art gynaecology and fertility services provided at united medical Practice. This minimally invasive route of surgery allows the surgeon access to the woman’s pelvis, to confirm the presence of gynaecological conditions, as well as to determine the cause(s) of infertility. Most surgical procedures required to treat these conditions can be accomplished via laparoscopy itself, making it a truly one-stop see-and-treat procedure for infertility.
The benefits of laparoscopy (over conventional open surgery) includes shorter hospitalization, faster recovery, less blood loss, pain and internal scarring, more precise dissection allows for less damage to surrounding tissue during surgery (this is especially important for fertility cases). Furthermore, the cosmetic effect of the “keyhole” wounds are far better than that of conventional open surgery.
