This is also called as key hole surgery. Telescope with fiber optic cable introduced through a port is used to visualize the abdominal and pelvic contents. Operating instruments are introduced through separate ports. It is a procedure that allows your gynecologist to access your pelvic organs with the minimum of disturbance. It usually involves a day case admission to hospital, and is done under a light general an aesthetic. It entails the insertion of a laparoscope (resembling a small telescope) through a small cut below the tummy button. A gas, carbon dioxide, is pumped into the abdomen to facilitate the view and a second or third small cut may be necessary to allow insertion of other instruments. If no surgery is performed at the time of laparoscopy, you will normally go home the same day, and may return to work after 3 days. You may have a small stitch where the instruments have been inserted, which will dissolve.
