What Is Laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy, a form of diagnostic surgical treatment, to examine your reproductive and abdominal organs within your body. The method can also be used to obtain tissue samples (biopsies) for analysis. In your abdomen a small cut (incision) of around 1 -1.5 CM, usually near your belly button is made, and a narrow, telescope-like instrument called a laparoscope is inserted.
