The Role of Diagnostic Laparoscopy in Fertility Treatment

Diagnostic laparoscopy allows our specialists to closely examine the reproductive organs, including the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries, through a small incision in the navel. This procedure is instrumental in identifying and treating conditions that may affect fertility, such as adhesions, blocked tubes, ovarian cysts, and endometriosis. In some cases, it also facilitates the laparoscopic removal of uterine fibroids.

Laparotomy vs. Laparoscopy

While laparotomy involves a larger incision and is akin to abdominal surgery, laparoscopy is favored for its minimally invasive nature, offering shorter recovery times and reduced risks. Most fertility-related surgeries can be performed via laparoscopy, making it a preferred method for both diagnosis and treatment.

Selecting a Reproductive Endocrinologist

Choosing the right reproductive endocrinologist is a critical step on your fertility journey. Recommendations from trusted sources or research can guide you, but at CCRM Fertility, we simplify this choice with our team of highly qualified reproductive endocrinologists, including Dr. Robin Poe-Zeigler, MD, FACOG. With years of experience and a personalized approach to care, our team is ready to support your path to parenthood.
