Recommending Laparoscopic Surgery for an Ectopic Pregnancy
Based on your past medical history, physical exam, and current symptoms, your healthcare provider may believe that you have an ectopic pregnancy. One treatment option for an ectopic pregnancy is laparoscopic surgery.
Laparoscopic surgery can be used as a tool for diagnosing medical conditions, such as ectopic pregnancy, by actually looking inside your abdomen (stomach). A laparoscopy offers many advantages over traditional open abdominal surgery. With laparoscopic surgery, people usually have shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery times because it is a simpler, less invasive procedure.
