Laparoscopy Q&A

What is laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique that involves making small incisions in the abdomen to view the abdominal or pelvic organs. During the procedure, the Roswell ObGyn, LLC team inserts a laparoscope, a thin tube with a light and camera, to view your internal organs on an outside monitor.


Laparoscopic procedures allow your doctor to diagnose and treat conditions without fully opening your abdomen. Laparoscopy typically takes less time than open surgery and may result in better outcomes.

What are the benefits of laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy offers many benefits over traditional open surgery, such as:


  • Less invasive
  • Minimal scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less recovery time
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Quicker return to normal activities
  • Reduced risk of infection


After reviewing your medical history and completing a thorough physical exam, the team can determine if you’re a candidate for laparoscopic surgery. 

Are there different types of gynecologic laparoscopy procedures?

Roswell ObGyn, LLC offers several types of laparoscopic procedures, such as:

Myomectomy (fibroid removal)

A myomectomy involves removing fibroids (benign tumors) while preserving the uterus. This procedure is ideal for women who still want to have children in the future.

Sterilization (tubal ligation)

Tubal ligation blocks or seals the fallopian tubes to permanently prevent pregnancy. While the procedure is reversible, reconnecting the fallopian tubes can be complex.

Tubal reanastomosis 

This procedure can reverse a tubal ligation by reconnecting the fallopian tubes, allowing for future pregnancy.


A hysterectomy removes the uterus. Depending on your needs, the team can perform a total, partial, or radical hysterectomy.

Why might I need laparoscopy?

Laparoscopic procedures can address the symptoms and complications of many gynecologic conditions, including:


  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Sterilization


If you have a condition that requires specialty care, such as a blocked fallopian tube, your OB/GYN can refer you to a provider who specializes in managing these conditions. The team works with many specialty providers to coordinate your care and ensure the best outcomes for your condition.
