The doctors at Midwest Fertility Center want to help all couples are individuals struggling with fertility issues. If a woman is struggling to conceive, doctors want to determine the possible cause of a woman’s infertility. To achieve this, Midwest Fertility Center uses a minimally-invasive procedure called laparoscopy which uses a small camera to look into the abdominal and pelvic cavities with a small incision.
Midwest Fertility Center uses laparoscopy to determine female infertility by examining a woman’s reproductive organs. Fertility specialists at Midwest Fertility Center only schedule the procedure after an infertility consultation has taken place. The specialist can then determine when the best time to schedule the operation is based on the patient’s reproductive cycle.
Midwest Fertility Center uses laparoscopy for more than examining a patient’s reproductive organs. The procedure is also used by the center to perform tubal ligation reversal. Thanks to laparoscopy, many women have been able to reverse their procedure in order to successfully procreate again.
Laparoscopy is also used to examine a woman’s uterus for hysteroscopy and dilatation and curettage. Midwest Fertility Center’s surgeon performs hysteroscopy to see inside the uterus. Midwest Fertility Center uses this to diagnose tumors or scarring. The dilatation and curettage is performed by surgeons at Midwest Fertility Center to remove tissue samples from the uterus and feel for irregularities using the curette.
Like all medical procedures, laparoscopy does come with risks and complications. Midwest Fertility Center will always sit down and discuss treatment and medical procedures with patients before a procedure begins. Even though the procedure is minimally-invasive, Midwest Fertility Center has to administer anesthesia before the procedure. Midwest Fertility Center’s specialists always carefully explain the entire process as well as follow-up procedure. Midwest Fertility Center encourages their patients to ask questions. They believe the more informed a patient is, the less stress a patient will have prior, during, and after a procedure.
