Instrument for Laparoscopy in the doctor's hands

Laparoscopy is a fairly common, outpatient procedure that is used to treat a variety of problems. The surgery is done by making a small incision in the abdomen, allowing a thin, lighted tube to be placed into the abdomen. This tube is connected to a camera, which allows your doctor to see the pelvic organs. Instruments may then be placed into the abdomen through additional small incisions in order to treat various problems including endometriosis, ectopic pregnancies, ovarian cysts, and pelvic pain.
