Gynaecological Laparoscopy

A gynaecological laparoscopy is a procedure where our 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.

About Gynaecological Laparoscopy

Gynaecological laparoscopy can be used to find out what’s causing your symptoms, as well as treating several different conditions. These include:

  • Diagnosing and treating endometriosis
  • Removing scar tissue (adhesions) – scars can develop after infections such as pelvic inflammatory disease or because of endometriosis
  • Treating an ectopic pregnancy – this is where a fertilised egg starts to develop outside your womb
  • Sterilisation, which means closing your fallopian tubes so that you can no longer get pregnant
  • Removing an ovarian cyst
  • Removing your womb (hysterectomy) or ovaries (oophorectomy)
  • Treating fibroids
  • Investigating whether you may have cancer or whether cancer has spread
