Gynaecological Laparoscopy Surgery

HER Clinic, founded by Dr. M.N.V Pallavi is Visakhapatnam's first comprehensive women's health centre. We offer international-standard obstetrics and gynaecology services, including advanced laparoscopic surgery.

What is Gynaecological Laparoscopy?

Gynaecological laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that allows Dr. Pallavi, a highly experienced laparoscopic surgeon, to examine the organs inside your pelvis and abdomen. A laparoscope, a thin, lighted instrument, is inserted through small incisions in your belly button or lower abdomen. This allows Dr. Pallavi to see your organs clearly on a monitor and perform necessary procedures.

Why Choose Laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy offers many advantages over traditional open surgery, including:

  • Smaller incisions: This leads to less pain, scarring, and a quicker recovery.

  • Shorter hospital stay: You may often go home the same day or after a short stay.

  • Faster recovery: You can typically return to your normal activities sooner.

Reasons for Gynaecological Laparoscopy:

There are two main reasons for a Gynaecological laparoscopy:

Diagnostic Laparoscopy

This procedure helps diagnose a variety of conditions, including:

  • Endometriosis

  • Pelvic adhesions

  • Fibroids

  • Ovarian cysts

  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)

  • Uterine abnormalities

Laparoscopic Treatment

Once a diagnosis is made, laparoscopy can be used to treat many conditions, such as:

  • Removal of ovarian cysts or fibroids

  • Treatment of endometriosis

  • Pelvic adhesion removal

  • Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus)

  • Tubal ligation (sterilization)


Preparing for Gynaecological Laparoscopy

​Dr. Pallavi will discuss your medical history and perform a physical exam to determine if laparoscopy is right for you. She will also provide detailed instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, including any dietary restrictions and medications to avoid.

The Laparoscopy Procedure

Gynaecological laparoscopy is usually performed under general anesthesia, meaning you will be asleep during the procedure. Dr. Pallavi will make a small incision in your navel or lower abdomen and insert the laparoscope. Carbon dioxide gas is then inflated into your abdomen to create a clear view of your organs. Additional small incisions may be made to insert surgical instruments. Dr. Pallavi will then perform the diagnostic or surgical procedure as needed.

Advances in Laparoscopy

Laparoscopic surgery is constantly evolving. Dr. Pallavi stays up-to-date on the latest advancements, such as robotic-assisted surgery, which offers even greater precision and control.

Risks of Laparoscopy

As with any surgery, laparoscopy carries some risks. However, these risks are generally low. Dr. Pallavi will discuss these risks with you in detail before your procedure.

Recovery after Laparoscopy

Most women experience a relatively quick recovery after laparoscopy. You may feel some soreness or discomfort at the incision sites, but this can be managed with pain medication. Dr. Pallavi will provide specific instructions on how to care for yourself at home during recovery.
