The surgeon makes tiny incisions – one in the navel and three in the lower abdomen. The gynecologist will make one incision in the navel (belly button) where the gas is injected and the laparoscope is inserted.
Additional incisions are made to allow instruments necessary for diagnostic exploration. If the doctor finds a growth or abnormality that should be biopsied, it can be removed and sent to the lab for analysis. Your doctor may completely remove the growth, perhaps using a laser. The laparoscope is removed and dissolvable sutures are made to close the small incisions.
Four tiny incisions are made – one in the navel and three addition sites in the lower abdomen to allow for insertion of the instruments.
Patients will normally go home within a few hours following surgery.
Most patients are fully recovered in four weeks and can return to noraml duties, but check with your doctor if you have a physically demanding job that requires lifting or pushing heavy objects.
