What is Laparoscopic Salpingostomy?

During laparoscopic salpingostomy, an ectopic pregnancy or blockage is removed from one or both fallopian tubes. The ovaries and tubes are left intact in order to restore fertility. This procedure is performed with a minimally invasive method that utilizes a laparoscope (a small video camera) and small instruments inserted through small incisions.

Also Known As:

·         Laparoscopic surgery
