Diseases that can be diagnosed by gynecological laparoscopy and types of laparoscopic treatments – Dr. Kosta Vasilevski

Laparoscopy generally has a shorter recovery time than open surgery. Leaves smaller scars. A gynecologist, general surgeon, or another type of specialist can perform this procedure. Gynecological laparoscopy is an alternative to open surgery. Use a laparoscope to look inside the pelvic area. Open surgery often requires a large incision. A laparoscope is a thin, lighted telescope. This allows your doctor to see inside your body. Diagnostic laparoscopy can determine if you have conditions such as endometriosis or fibroids. It can also be a form of treatment. With miniaturized instruments, your doctor can perform a variety of surgeries.

  1. endometriosis
  2. uterine fibroids
  3. cysts or tumors of the ovaries
  4. ectopic pregnancy
  5. pelvic abscess or pus
  6. pelvic adhesions or painful scar tissue
