Laparoscopy:

Laparoscopic surgery is a modern surgical technique in which operations in the abdomen are performed through small incisions (usually 0.5-1 cm) as compared to the larger incisions needed in laparotomy (open surgery).

Method of cutting the abdomen open for a surgery is replaced by gaining access through very small holes made on the abdominal wall. Simple surgeries like laparoscopic sterilisation, diagnostic laparoscopy etc and complex surgeries like hysterectomy ( Removal of the uterus ) or ovarian cystectomy (eg., Removal of ovarian cyst ) etc., are performed with ease with the help of miniature video cameras which becomes eye for the surgeon and advanced fibre optic light sources which aid in high resolution, magnified video images and specially designed tools for cutting, grasping, stapling etc.

Advantages of minimally invasive surgery:

1. Shorter hospital stay
2. Minimal tissue damage due to specially designed miniature tools
3. Less pain and discomfort
4. Small incision 0.5 to 1 cm and hence very small and negligible scars
5. Fewer complications from blood loss, infection, hernia formation

Hysteroscopic Surgeries:

A thin telescope with lenses, a Hysteroscope which when attached to miniature video camera and advanced fibre optic light sources aid in high resolution imaging under magnification. Hence a hysteroscope is introduced into the uterus to view the inner surface of the uterus under magnification. When any pathology like polyp is identified it is corrected with the help of hysteroscope itself.
