Pelviscopy (Operative Laparoscopy)
Pelviscopy refers to a special type of operative laparoscopy, in which more extensive procedures are performed. Pelviscopy is used to treat ectopic pregnancies, ovarian cysts and tumors, endometriosis and pelvic adhesions. Pelviscopy, when used properly, offers numerous advantages.
The surgeon can avoid an open abdominal incision, allowing an outpatient procedure. It minimizes discomfort and there is no visible surgical scar. Most importantly, the laparoscopic approach often produces better results than other types of surgery. This is probably due to decreased tissue trauma and lessened adhesion formation.
