It provides a clear close-up view of the outside of the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and other organs that are situated nearby.

Is Laparoscopy useful these days?
In today’s gynecological practice, laparoscopy is commonly recommended by doctors as it is a minimally invasive procedure, regardless of whether it is used for diagnostic reasons or as a surgical solution. Laparoscopy offers an effective way of exploring medical conditions such as infertility or pain in the abdominal area and also for carrying out major surgeries like removal of the uterus or ovarian cysts through its minimally invasive approach.
The gynecologist can use the tools to explore and get a direct view of the pelvis and peritoneal cavity without putting the patient through the stress and inconvenience of standard surgical methods.
While diagnosing a gynecological condition, such as endometriosis, laparoscopy is the best way of arriving at a conclusion because of the direct view it offers. Laparoscopic procedures are increasingly being used in conditions such as myomectomy, adnexal surgery, tubal ligation, hysterectomy, and also in some cases of gynecological cancer.
