What is pelvic laparoscopy?

Pelvic laparoscopy is a type of surgery that allows your doctor to see and treat organs and tissues inside your pelvis with a laparoscope. A laparoscope is a long, thin camera that is inserted through a small abdominal incision, typically ½ to 1 cm long. The camera transmits pictures of the inside of your body to a video screen viewed by your doctor as he or she performs your surgery.
