Laparoscopic surgery is a method in which only 5-10mm of abdominal micro-incision is made instead of a laparotomy. Diagnosis and treatment of most gynecological diseases is possible with the laparoscopic method, and is recognized as a universal surgical method due to faster recovery and being able to return to daily activities with minimal scarring.
Advantages of Laparoscopic Surgery Outweigh Laparotomy
  1. 1 Patients are often left with a tiny scar that is hardly visible with a shorter recovery period and less pain
  2. 2 Microsurgery is possible through magnification.
  3. 3 Fast recovery period, shorter inpatient period, and can return back to daily activities sooner.
  4. 4 Less bleeding, infection and adhesion after surgery.
Surgery Method
During laparoscopy, the doctor makes a 10mm incision below the navel, and then inserts a small tube to inflate the abdomen with carbon dioxide gas. This gas allows the doctor to see your abdominal organs more clearly. Once your abdomen is inflated, the doctor inserts the laparoscope through another 5-10mm incision in the lower abdomen. The camera attached to the laparoscope displays the images on a screen, allowing your organs to be viewed.
Laparoscopy can be used for diagnosis and treatment of fertility patients. Uterine fibroids, adhesions in the pelvis, endometriosis, fallopian tubes, PCOS can be diagnosed and treated through laparoscopic surgery. Also, if the occlusion of the fallopian tubes is suspected during a hysterosalpingogram, the fallopian tubes can then be examined thoroughly through a laparoscopy.
  • Diagnostic Laparoscopy

    The anatomical structure of the pelvis and the lesions of pelvic organs can be viewed as an enlarged image through an endoscopic camera, and if needed, treatment through surgical laparoscopy can be performed.

    1. 1 Unknown cause of infertility
    2. 2 Suspected occlusion of the fallopian tube or adhesion around the fallopian tube through hysterosalpingography
    3. 3 Suspected endometriosis
    4. 4 Chronic lower abdominal pain and suspected pelvic adhesions
    5. 5 Suspected ectopic pregnancy, but the location is unknown
  • Myomectomy
    Depending on the location of the uterine fibroid, it may cause infertility by interfering with the movement of the egg or sperm or the implantation of the embryo. However, if the size of the uterine fibroid is too large, open surgery may be performed.
  • Tuboplasty

    Tuboplasty is a surgical procedure performed on the fallopian tubes. It is often necessary to remove a blockage in one of the tubes that may occur either near where the tube meets the uterus or toward the end of the tube. Fallopian tube blockages may be caused by pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, and postoperative pelvic adhesions, and can prevent a woman from becoming pregnant.
    Tuboplasty is performed by a laparoscopic procedure to either remove adhesions around the fallopian tube and create a new opening within the fallopian tube by rejoining existing parts. The probability of pelvic adhesion after surgery is less than that of open surgery, which may increase the chances of pregnancy.

  • Microsurgical Tubal Reconstruction

    When a woman who previously had bilateral fallopian tube ligation for contraceptive purposes wishes to get pregnant again, it is a surgery that restores the function of the fallopian tube by resecting the area where the fallopian tube is ligated with laparoscopic microsurgery and reconstructs the fallopian tube.
    This surgery requires the most advanced surgical skills among laparoscopic techniques as it requires the use of a fine suture and the anastomosis of multiple layers of the fallopian tubes within the abdominal cavity. CHA Fertility Center has the most experience in surgeries related to fertility with the highest pregnancy success rates worldwide.

    If the fallopian tube is restored, natural pregnancy can be attempted, while having the advantage of avoiding ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome and multiple pregnancies, which can occur during IVF procedure. Microsurgical tubal reconstruction can be an option to significantly improve a woman’s chance to conceive naturally.

  • Endometriosis Surgery

    Endometriosis is a common gynecological condition, affecting up to 10% of women. It is a disorder in which the tissue that forms the lining of your uterus grows outside of your uterine cavity. Swelling and scarring caused by inflammation may affect the movement of the egg so it may not reach its proper destination. The inflammation also can damage the sperm and egg when endometriosis is present. The endometriosis can also start to cause adhesions, and the pelvic organs begin to stick to each other, resulting in decreased function. Endometriosis can also block the fallopian tubes which can also be a cause of infertility. In addition, chronic lower abdominal pain, severe menstrual pain, and pain during intercourse can seriously affect the quality of life. The best method for diagnosing endometriosis is by a laparoscopy, and through laparoscopic resection of the endometriosis lesion, the adhesion of the pelvic organs can be removed to restore normal pelvic structure.

    In addition, by removing ovarian cysts caused by endometriosis, you can increase the success rate of pregnancy while alleviating pain. Hormonal treatment may also be given for 3-6 months before or after surgery.
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

    PCOS affects 4-10% of women during their childbearing years and is one of the main reasons for infertility. With PCOS, your reproductive hormones are out of balance which can affect your menstrual cycle and lead to infertility. PCOS can also cause acne, abnormal uterine bleeding, and also be associated with obesity. Small polycystic follicles are observed through an ultrasound, and in the long term, they may also be associated with metabolic diseases such as diabetes and hypercholesterolemia.

Hysteroscopy is done using a lighted 3-5mm hysteroscope, that is inserted into the vagina to examine the cervix and inside of the uterus. Hysteroscopy is used to investigate symptoms or collect biopsies for diagnosis if necessary. Anesthesia is usually not needed for investigating purposes and can be performed as an outpatient exam. However, if there are suspicions of congenital anomaly of the uterus, severe pelvic adhesion, or abnormal shape of uterus, general anesthesia may be given.
  1. 1 Infertility of unknown cause or repeated failure of IVF
  2. 2 If the endometrium is constantly thin during IVF or when inducing ovulation
  3. 3 When either the ultrasound or hysterosalpingogram shows abnormal findings and diagnosis and treatment is needed for intrauterine abnormalities (polyps, myomas, endometrial adhesions, etc.) or congenital malformations of the uterus (uterine septum, bilateral uterus, etc.)
  4. 5 For persistent or recurrent abnormal uterine bleeding
