Advanced Laparoscopy at
Birla Fertility & IVF
Certain conditions like endometriosis, fibroids and obstructions in the fallopian tube can impact the ability to become pregnant or carry a pregnancy to term. Gynaecological laparoscopy is a keyhole procedure to look inside the abdomen to examine the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. It is performed under general anaesthesia and follows a “see and treat” approach. In these procedures, a small incision is made in or near the belly button and a thin viewing instrument (laparoscope) is introduced into the abdomen to identify and treat gynaecological issues that may be preventing pregnancy.
At Birla Fertility & IVF, we offer a complete range of gynaecological procedures including minimally invasive laparoscopy and hysteroscopy for reduced recovery time, reduced scarring, and improved treatment outcomes.
Laparoscopy is recommended for women with:
History of conditions like Endometriosis
Scarring from infections like pelvic inflammatory disease, conditions like endometriosis or surgeries in the pelvic region
Uterine anomalies like dermoid cysts or fibroids
Blocked fallopian tubes
Laparoscopy Procedures at Birla Fertility & IVF
Our range of laparoscopy procedures include:
Laparoscopic myomectomy involves removal of symptom-causing fibroids present in the uterus. It is recommended for women who plan on having children after the treatment or who are unable to become pregnant because of fibroids.
Endometrioma is a part of endometriosis. It is a type of cyst formed when endometrial tissue grows in the ovaries. Endometriomas are considered to be one of the most serious threats to female fertility after cancers of the reproductive tract and age. Laparoscopy can be used to remove endometriomas with minimal postoperative damage and scarring.
Adhesions are bands or lumps of scar tissue that form in the body as a result of previous surgeries, infections, trauma, or inflammatory conditions. Adhesions may not show up on conventional imaging scans like ultrasounds. Laparoscopic pelvic adhesiolysis involves the identification and removal of pelvic adhesions.
Hydrosalpinx is a condition in which the fallopian tube gets blocked with fluid. It can have a severe impact on fertility. Hydrosalpinx is generally diagnosed and treated laparoscopically for minimal scarring and faster recovery.
This procedure is performed to identify and remove dermoid cysts. Dermoid cysts or teratomas are cysts on the ovaries which contain tissue like hair or skin. They are generally non-cancerous. However, they can interfere with becoming pregnant and cause pregnancy complications.
Ectopic pregnancy is a condition where the embryo implants outside the uterus like in the fallopian tubes. This is an extremely dangerous condition for the patient and must be treated at the earliest. Laparoscopy is preferred as it minimises scarring from the treatment.
Problems in the fallopian tubes are a common cause of subfertility in women. Laparoscopic tubal patency test and tubal cannulation is a surgical procedure to diagnose and treat conditions like tubal blockage.
Laparoscopy is often used to diagnose and treat problems like T-shaped uterus. These structural abnormalities interfere with the implantation and subsequent development of the embryo in the uterus.
