What is meant by a Laparoscope and Laparoscopy?
A Laparoscope is a thin tube that has a video camera attached to its one end. The doctor will use the tool by making a small cut. Through the video camera, the proper images of the inside of the body are seen and the doctor can see everything live on the monitor. Only because of the laparoscope, the surgeon can reach the body parts and even without making too much cut. The laparoscopy procedure comes under the category of minimally invasive surgery.

Our highly skilled surgeon will plan the right treatment approach for you and ensure that you can get the procedure done in the right approach.
What happens before the procedure?
First of all, the doctor will check your condition and then look at what the problem is.
In addition, the doctor will tell you and your partner in detail regarding the procedure.
Do you know?
Laparoscopic tubal recanalization is only suggested when the fallopian tubes can get the reanastomosis and are in the right tube length.
What happens during the procedure?
The gynaecologist will perform the procedure by giving you anesthesia so that you don’t feel any pain. Initially, the doctor will make a small incision that is around half an inch long.
Following the incision is made, the doctor will insert carbon dioxide in the abdomen which helps the surgeon to get an unobstructed view of all the organs and the surgeon will get the desired space to do the surgery.
Then the surgeon will insert the laparoscope which allows us to see the fallopian tubes. At first, the tubes are untied and then the tube ends are attached.
What does recovery feel like?
After the surgery, you have to be in the post-operative ward, and in the meantime, your health will be looked at to ensure that there is no complication. The doctor will give you certain instructions which you have to bear in mind. To get back to your normal working routine it will take around 3 days. Some of the common guidelines are:
No problem in bathing or showering after the surgery
The bandage should be removed after 3 days
Vaginal bleeding is normal for few days
Few days of the menstrual cycle can be painful
The menstrual cycle will be normal after 4 to 6 weeks of getting the surgery
Avoid sexual intercourse for 1 week
