Laparoscopy is performed in the operating room with a telescopic camera introduced
via a small puncture rather than through a full incision. The camera allows the
surgeon to evaluate the
uterus, ovaries, and other organs, and to biopsy any suspicious lesions
or remove small, externally dangling
Laparoscopic surgery for
endometriosis is also becoming increasingly popular, enabling surgeons to
meticulously remove endometrial implants with special laser techniques specific
to each tissue type, while leaving the reproductive system intact.
Outcome is largely dependent on the extent of the endometriosis and the surgeon’s
skill. Again, it is ideal to see an endometriosis specialist for this type of procedure.
Repeat procedures may be needed, since endometriosis can grow back, and adhesion
scar tissue can also develop.
Removing the uterus for endometriosis is usually not helpful because the condition
is systemic and not caused by the uterus.
