Diagnostic Laparoscopy Specialist in TilaknagarSpecialist in IVF and Fertility
Laparoscopy, a minimally invasive surgery technique, can be employed for
diagnostic purposes as well. IVF and fertility specialists use this technique to examine
women's reproductive organs.
The laparoscope, a thin tube that is fitted with a camera and resembles a telescope, is inserted into a woman's abdomen through a small incision made near the belly button area.
With the help of the laparoscope, specialists can take a close look at the outside of a patient's uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and other adjacent organs. In some cases, laparoscopy is also used as an alternative option to open surgery.
At Aanvi Fertility and Women's Centre, Dr. Swarna, a specialist in IVF and Fertility in Tilaknagar, uses the laparoscopy technique to diagnose various conditions. A pelvic laparoscopy for women is generally recommended if other diagnostic tests like X-ray and ultrasound cannot detect the reason for a specific condition.

Laparoscopic Surgery Procedure
Recovery after Laparoscopy in Tilaknagar
In general, the healing time is shorter for laparoscopy than for open surgery. Furthermore,
it leaves smaller scars. Patients who undergo laparoscopy procedures commonly experience
shoulder pain following the procedure.
It is best to avoid drinking alcohol and smoking while recovering at home. The bandages can be removed by the patient the next morning. If steri-strips are placed, they can be removed after two to three days following the surgery. Patients can start going to work three days after the surgery. Surgical scars will go away slowly over time.
If the laparoscopy procedure was done to examine the fallopian tubes, the patient's urine may be green in colour because of the dye used. Urine colour will soon return to normal. Patients can experience vaginal bleeding for about a month following the surgery.
Many patients may also miss their next menstrual cycle. When they have their next menstrual cycle, bleeding and discomfort may be more than normal.
Such patients will have to wait for a period of 2 to 3 cycles to find out if laparoscopy has been helpful in relieving their condition. Patients who have undergone laparoscopy can resume their sexual activity a week after the surgery.
If you have any of the medical conditions mentioned above, you can book an appointment and meet Dr. Swarnain Tilaknagar.
She is a trained gynaecologist with a postgraduate diploma in obstetrics and gynaecology. Dr. Swarna is also an (ICOG-certified) ultrasound scanning specialist. She has also carried out more than 100 laparoscopic procedures.
