Laparoscopy for Infertility - Everything about the Procedure and Benefits of Laparoscopy:
Employing the surgical procedures for curing diseases dates back to the start of the Neolithic period. But it was only at the turn of this century that the Surgery has slowly started to become a necessary component in public health. With the advent of technology, medical surgery has made rapid strides in the last 30 years making a way for the advanced surgical procedures that were previously unthinkable. And Laparoscopy is one of the major surgical advancements that has helped in saving the lives of millions worldwide.
 
What is Laparoscopy?
 
Laparoscopic Surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure where the surgery is performed by making smaller incisions. Unlike Open surgery where surgery is performed by making a single large incision on the skin, Laparoscopy makes use of smaller multiple incisions reducing the time, pain, recovery time and also the hospital stay of the patient significantly.
 
How is Laparoscopic surgery performed?
 
Laparoscopic surgery is performed using a laparoscope, a thin slender tube with light and camera which is inserted into the body through a smaller incision that is no more than half an inch. The belly is filled with the gas so as to make the body organs visible in the light. The laparoscope relays the image onto the high-resolution monitor. Surgery is then performed by passing the smaller surgical instruments through the incision onto the site of operation.

After the operation the gas is let out from the belly, the smaller incisions are stitched, and dressing is done. Patients in most cases can leave the hospital on the day of surgery itself.
 
Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgery:
 
Laparoscopic surgery has soon become the most widely accepted surgical procedure among the surgeons because of its efficacy and also the advantages it parlays over to the patient. For example, the larger incisions of open surgeries cause larger inflammatory reactions which make patients prone to infections. Being a minimally invasive procedure with smaller incisions, Laparoscopy, the chance of infection is less to none.

The whole point of choosing Laparoscopy over other procedures is to reduce the chance of such risks and improve the comfort levels of the patient post-surgery. Here are a few advantages of Laparoscopy over open surgery procedures:
