Laparoscopic pelvic dissection is a surgical technique that uses a laparoscope to see inside your body without making large incisions in the skin. The laparoscope is a thin, telescopic rod with a camera at the end that is inserted through small incisions in the abdomen. This technique is used for various purposes such as removing tumors or cysts, treating endometriosis, and performing hysterectomies.
Laparoscopic pelvic dissection has several advantages over traditional open surgery. It causes less pain and scarring, has a shorter recovery time, and allows patients to return to their normal activities more quickly. However, it also has some risks such as bleeding, infection, and damage to nearby organs.
The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. During the surgery, the laparoscope transmits images of the inside of the abdomen to a video monitor in the operating room. The surgeon then uses specialized instruments to perform the surgery while watching the monitor.
