What is an Abdominal Laparoscopy?

A laparoscopy, also known as a diagnostic laparoscopy, is a surgical diagnostic procedure done to examine the organs inside the abdomen, as well as other closed spaces, such as the knees.

It’s a low risk, minimally invasive procedure that requires only small incisions.

When an abdominal laparoscopy is performed, a doctor uses an instrument called a laparoscope to look at the abdominal organs.

A laparoscopy allows your doctor to see inside your body in real time, without having to make large incisions. Your doctor can also obtain biopsy samples during this procedure, as well as also perform surgery.
