How is Laparoscopy performed?
Under general anesthesia, a small incision is made in or below your navel or in another area of your abdomen. The laparoscope is inserted and the abdomen is filled with gas which allows the pelvic reproductive organs to be seen more clearly. Other small incisions may be made in the abdomen for surgical instruments.
