What can be done Laparoscopically?

Virtually any procedure that has been done as an open or conventional operation previously can now be done laparoscopically (and these are all available at Greenslopes Specialist Gynaecology) including Hysterectomy, ovarian cysts, fibroid removal, treatment of endometriosis, treatment of adhesions, Uterine and cervical cancer treatments including lymph node assessment, some ovarian cancers. There are still times that an open (laparotomy) procedure may be necessary for a variety of reasons which Dr Land will discuss with you, however a majority of cases are treated very successfully with the laparoscopic approach. Prior surgery and obesity are not contraindications for laparoscopic surgery.
