Diagnostic Laparoscopy Specialist in Tilaknagar

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.

Diagnostic Laparoscopy in Tilaknagar

At Aanvi Fertility and Women’s Centre, diagnostic laparoscopy is used not only for examination purposes but also in the treatment of various conditions such as:

  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Excision of tissue mass
  • Infertility in males and females
  • Pelvic infection
  • Ovarian cyst
  • Tubal ligation
  • Hysterectomy

Laparoscopic Surgery Procedure

  • The laparoscopic procedure is generally performed under general anaesthesia.
  • The laparoscopic surgeon first makes a small incision below the patient’s belly button.
  • Then the doctor inserts a hollow tube referred to as a needle, or trocar, into the incision.
  • Through the trocar, carbon dioxide gas is pumped into the abdomen. This is done not only to expand the area but also to help the surgeon get more room to work. Besides, it allows the surgeon to clearly view the internal organs.
  • A laparoscope is guided through the trocar to view the inside of the abdomen. Multiple incisions may have to be made if more instruments are needed to be used.
  • For gynaecologic laparoscopy, a dye is often injected into the patient’s cervix to better view the fallopian tubes.
  • On completing the exam or surgery, the carbon dioxide gas, laparoscope, and instruments are retracted, and the incisions are closed and covered with bandages.

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.
