A laparoscopy is a diagnostic and corrective reproductive surgical procedure performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. The laparoscopy allows Dr. Randy S. Morris view and diagnose fertility problems missed when using an ultrasound. For example, a woman suffering from severe endometriosis is commonly identified via ultrasound – however – if her endometriosis is mild, the condition may be missed. Through a laparoscopy, a woman’s mild endometriosis will be diagnosed and corrected.
Benefits of Laparoscopy
Fallopian tubes will become blocked due to:
- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
Blocked fallopian tubes is a prevalent cause of a women’s infertility. Blockage of the fallopian tubes makes pregnancy impossible. Blockage makes conception is unlikely because the woman’s egg is prevented from traveling through her fallopian tubes in order to meet the man’s sperm. Likewise, the man’s sperm is prevented from reaching the woman’s egg due to the blockage.Should the egg and sperm manage to meet, the fertilized egg may not be able to travel back through the fallopian tube and into the uterus for implantation. In this case, the fertilized egg may implant in the woman’s fallopian tube, resulting in an ectopic pregnancy (tubal pregnancy) that can cause permanent damage.Laparoscopy to Diagnose and Correct Fertility ProblemsLaparoscopy is a corrective reproductive surgical procedure allowing your fertility doctor to view the fallopian tubes for abnormalities interfering with conception. A laparoscope is a thin fiber optic telescope inserted through a small incision in the belly button. If abnormalities are discovered, surgical instruments are inserted through additional tiny incisions at the pubic hair line to remove the blockage.
