Endoscopic surgery is performed under general anaesthetic and includes hysteroscopy and laparoscopy.
- Hysteroscopy involves passing a telescope into the uterine cavity through the vagina and the cervix. It is used to inspect the condition of the uterus from within.
- Laparoscopy involves an inspection of the pelvic organs by a telescope passed through a tiny incision at the navel. Separate small incisions at the level of the hip bones are used to introduce probes to manipulate the pelvic organs.
