Laparoscopy is a surgery that uses a thin, lighted tube put through a cut (incision) in the belly to look at the abdominal organs or the female pelvic organs.

Myomectomy

Myomectomy is the surgical removal of fibroids from the uterus. It allows the uterus to stay in place and, for some women, makes pregnancy more likely than before. Myomectomy is the preferred fibroid treatment for women who want to become pregnant.

Tubal Ligation

Tubal Ligation

Tubal ligation is a surgical procedure for female sterilization which involves the fallopian tubes being cut, tied, or blocked to prevent pregnancy permanently. Tubal ligation is performed as a permanent method of contraception and should only be done if you are certain, you will not want to fall pregnant in the future. It is effective for women who cannot use other methods of contraception or for women who have health problems that make pregnancy unsafe. Your doctor should make you fully aware of the risks and benefits of tubal ligation as it is not for everyone.
