Laparoscopy is commonly called ‘keyhole’ surgery or ‘minimally invasive surgery’. During laparoscopy a small camera (5-10 mm wide) is introduced into the abdomen via a small (around 1 cm) incision in the belly button (umbilicus).
Laparoscopy allows examination of the interior of the abdominal or pelvic cavities for the diagnosis or treatment (or both) of several gynaecological conditions. The surgery can be performed via ‘keyholes’ thus avoiding the need for a large cut on the abdomen.
Laparoscopy offers women substantial advantages over traditional open surgery:
- Significantly less pain
- More rapid recovery
- Shorter hospital stay
- Smaller scars
At Advanced Laparoscopy and Gynaecology Centre (ALGC) we are dedicated to bringing the advantages of laparoscopy to all women requiring gynaecological surgery.
At ALGC we firmly believe in the immense benefits of laparoscopic surgery to women. Regrettably, each year many women are not made aware of keyhole surgery as an alternative to open surgery.
