Fertility Surgery in Women

Invasive laparoscopy

Laparoscopy is performed under general anesthesia and can be simply diagnostic and / or invasive. When diagnosed, it is minor surgery in which a fiber optic telescope (laparoscope) passes through a small incision in the navel and allows direct examination and complete examination of female genitalia (ovaries, uterus, fallopian tubes) but also other intra-abdominal organs (intestine, liver, gall bladder, etc.).

Laparoscopy can be used to treat conditions related to infertility, such as endometriosis , pelvic adhesions [link], ovarian cysts, fibroids and others. Hospitalization lasts usually one night.

Interventional hysteroscopy

It is minor surgery during which a fiber optic hysteroscope passes through the cervix without incisions inside the uterus and inspects its cavity for polyps, fibroids, adhesions and pathological anatomy (septate uterus ), and if it is deemed necessary during hysteroscopy, treatment may be implemented in order to remove correct these pathological conditions.

The surgery is done on a daily basis, lasts 10-30 minutes and the patient does not have to spend the night at the hospital. It should take place the week after the end of the period. After examination and for 1-2 days the patient may suffer little pain and minor bleeding.
