Laparoscopic Procedures

What is a Laparoscopy?

A laparoscopic procedure, also known as laparoscopy, is a surgical procedure that uses small incisions and camera guidance to complete surgical repairs with a less invasive approach. The name laparoscopic comes from the device that is used during the procedure, called a laparoscope.

Why is a Laparoscopy performed?

When appropriate, a laparoscopic procedure may be recommended so your doctor can make an accurate diagnosis and/or make surgical repairs using a less invasive approach than traditional surgery. A laparoscopic procedure can help diagnose and treat various gynecologic conditions, such as:

The Laparoscopy Procedure

A camera and all surgical tools will move through the tubes to perform the surgery. Different types of laparoscopic procedures include:

How Long Is A Laparoscopy?

Procedure time will vary based on the procedure that is taking place. A laparoscopic hysterectomy or laparoscopic myomectomy can take anywhere from 1-2 hours. A hernia repair procedure can take up to 2 hours. Speak with your doctor to learn more about specific procedure times and what to expect before, during, and after your surgery.
