Endoscopic Surgery


Reproductive surgery is performed as a diagnostic procedure to find out the cause of infertility when no apparent reasons are obvious.

It is also performed to either treat infertility with the aim of restoring the reproductive organs to normal or near normal state; or to optimise access to the ovaries for egg harvest. Surgery also aims to improve the chance of implantation of the developing baby by improving the womb through removal of polyps or fibroids.


Laparoscopy uses an instrument called a laparoscope to look at the abdominal organs. A laparoscope is a long, thin tube with a high-intensity light and a high-resolution camera at the front. The instrument is inserted through an incision in the abdominal wall. As it moves along, the camera sends images to a video monitor.

Its greatest advantage is the ability to magnify the views of the operating field, allowing the surgeon to operate precisely and therefore minimising scar tissues. In addition, the patient recovers quickly due to less pain and commonly goes home after several hours. The recovery time after surgery is about 2 to 3 days.


Hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to look inside your uterus in order to diagnose and treat causes of abnormal bleeding. Hysteroscopy is done using a hysteroscope, a thin, lighted tube that is inserted into the vagina to examine the cervix and inside of the uterus. Hysteroscopy can be either diagnostic or operative.
