Operative and diagnostic laparoscopy

Our Approach

A laparoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used for both diagnostic and operative purposes.

Risks and side effects

Your doctor will walk you through any specific preparation measures depending upon the operation you’re receiving. Be sure to bring up any questions or concerns you may have, as our professionals want to ensure you understand every aspect of your treatment.

What to expect after treatment
