  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Tubal permeability certification (dye test)
  • Congenital uterine malformations (Mullerian malformations) by means of hysteroscopy

Laparoscopy has replaced the traditional surgery tο a great extent and it is widely used as it offers many advantages.

Its main advantage is the absence of extensive surgical incision and its replacement by three small incisions of about 1 cm. This means minimal trauma and pain, minimal blood loss, absence of intra-abdominal adhesions as well as reduced postoperative hospitalization. In most cases recovery is immediate and return to work is possible within the next few days.

Furthermore, the absence of extensive incision has no negative aesthetic effect improving in this way the woman’s psychology and leading her to a faster recovery.
