Endometriosis is a condition where the tissue lining the uterus (endometrium) also starts growing outside the uterus. This unwanted growth can make the woman infertile and cause pain and excessive bleeding during periods. Dr. Sunita Tandulwadkar is a world-renowned fertility expert, who recommends a simple laparoscopic surgery for Endometriosis to remove this growth, which can restore fertility and dramatically improve the chances of pregnancy. She leads a team of expert professionals at the Ruby Hall Clinic, which implements the latest technologies and equipments for all procedures.What is Laparoscopy?
Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique, where a miniscule telescopic instrument with a light source is inserted through the navel by making a small incision. Other similar small incisions could be made to insert other surgical instruments needed for the procedure. These incisions are very small and hence can be closed with closure tape or one stitch.Why Use Laparoscopic Surgery for Endometriosis?
Apart from being less invasive procedure, laparoscopy has the advantage of diagnosing and treating endometriosis at the same time with minimum post operative adhesions. This procedure can also reveal where and how much of the endometriosis is present.
If a woman is suffering from infertility and the doctor suspects endometriosis, the laparoscopy will help in the following ways -
1) The procedure helps in direct visualization of internal organs for easily detecting endometriosis and even other possible issues. For diagnosing endometriosis with certainty, laparoscopy is the only available procedure.
2) The same procedure is further used for removing the endometriotic tissue or implant that is causing infertility or pain. If the endometriosis has gone into the ovaries, it usually forms a cyst, which can also be removed by the laparoscopic procedure. Studies have shown that in over 70% women who have undergone laparoscopic surgery, endometriosis does not recur for more than five years.What does the Laparoscopic Surgery Involve?
Laparoscopic surgery for Endometriosis is a relatively simple procedure that treats the issue effectively. Eight hours before the procedure, the woman is not given anything to drink or eat. Laparoscopy can be performed under general or regional anesthesia, depending on the extent of the problem and preference of the surgeon.
First, the abdomen of the woman will be inflated with nitrous oxide or carbon dioxide gas through a needle. This gas will push the wall of the abdomen away from organs, which enables the surgeon to view the insides clearly. The laparoscope is then inserted through a small incision for examining the internal organs. Additional incisions might be made to insert instruments for moving internal structures and organs in order to get a better view.
The surgeon will then remove the endometriotic tissue by various methods. The surgeon might cut and remove the tissue, or might destroy it with a laser beam or by passing electric current. After all the endometriotic tissue is removed or destroyed, the surgeon will close the small incision/s with a few stitches. The whole procedure usually takes about 45 minutes and usually the patient is sent home the same day. In some cases, the patient might have to stay for one more day.
If you are not getting pregnant, even after a year of unprotected sex, then you might be having endometriosis, which is causing infertility. Visit Ruby Hall Clinic immediately, and consult the highly experienced Dr. Sunita Tandulwadkar, who will conduct a thorough examination of your issues. Laparoscopic surgery for Endometriosis is usually advised for moderate to severe cases, as that will improve your chances of pregnancy considerably.
