Laparoscopic Surgery

Gynaecological laparoscopy

A gynaecological laparoscopy is a procedure where your surgeon uses a camera (laparoscope) to see inside your lower abdomen (tummy). This means they will be able to see your uterus (womb), fallopian tubes and ovaries. They will also be able to see other parts of your body, such as your bladder and bowel.

As well as looking inside your abdomen, your surgeon can also use special instruments to do tests or treat certain gynaecological conditions. Gynaecological laparoscopy can be used to diagnose a condition and/or to treat it.
