Best Gynecological Endoscopy Laparoscopy

 

Endoscopy is the science of looking inside the human body without opening it up. It was telescopic instruments to view the interior of the body, which are inserted either through natural openings or through small artificial ones.

Endoscopy can be used to look at any part of the body.

We, at Jindal IVF, have been doing endoscopy for all sorts of gynaecological and infertility related problem for many years now.

Gynae endoscopy is of three main types :-

1) Laparoscopy

2) Hysteroscopy

3) Advanced Gynae Endoscopy

Laparoscopy

What it means?

Laparoscopy is a procedure by which a telescope is introduced into the abdominal cavity to assess the pelvic organs and perform any required surgery. It is done as a day care procedure most of the time but may require admission to the hospital for complicated cases. It may be diagnostic or operative.

Who are suitable candidates?

  • Patients with unexplained infertility – diagnostic laparoscopy to rule out peritoneal endometriosis, etc.
  • To check for tubal patency in case of blocked tubes
  • Operative –
    –  Myomectomy – removal of fibroids
    – Cystectomy – removal of endometriotic or other ovarian cysts
    – Adhesiolysis – means removal of intraabdominal bands on the uterus
    – Salpingectomy for ectopic pregnancy, hydrosalpinx
    – Tubal surgery – recanalization
    – Ovarian drilling
    – Hysterectomy – removal of uterus

What are its main steps?

  • Complete workup of patient is done to assess preoperative status and suitability for anaesthesia
  • Patient is kept under overnight fasting
  • Surgery performed under general anaesthesia
  • Telescope and instruments introduced from small puncture sites on the abdomen
  • Patient kept under observation for 4-5 hours post-operative

Advanced Gynae Endoscopy

Jindal IVF has started a specialised advanced gynae endoscopy unit to cater to the need for advanced endoscopic procedures, which were available only in select hospitals in the region previously.

Advanced endoscopic procedures avoid the need for open surgery, thus reducing cost, time spent in anesthesia, recovery time and discomfort. Some of the procedures done here include:

a. Laparoscopic cervical cerclage – for incompetent os
b. Laparoscopic sacropexy – for prolapse uterus
c. Laparoscopic TLH (hysterectomy) – removal of uterus
d. Laparoscopic myomectomy – removal of large fibroids, difficult cases of fibroids and endometriosis
e.  And others

If you have any need of these kind of procedures, Jindal IVF provides a comfortable and affordable place to get operated. Our motto is ‘where excellence and ethics meet’ and we try to live up to it.
