Laparoscopic surgery

Laparoscopy is minimally invasive surgery using a laparoscope, a long, thin tube with a high-intensity light and camera that is inserted through small incisions in the abdominal wall. Images are projected onto a video monitor, while additional small incisions are used to insert surgical instruments and perform procedures. The small incisions result in very little visible scarring. Laparoscopy is performed in the hospital, usually as a same-day procedure and is effectively used for: 

Laparoscopic procedures performed:

  • Endometriosis

  • Hysterectomy

  • Myomectomy

  • Lysis of adhesions

  • Ovarian cystectomy

  • Tubal procedures


Mini/Macrolaparoscopy has revolutionized laparoscopic surgery. While a standard laparoscopic procedure uses incisions approximately ½-1/4 inch in length, the mini/microlaparoscopic procedure uses even smaller incisions, approximately 1/10 of an inch in length, and smaller instruments. This means certain procedures can be performed with less anesthesia resulting in even less pain and quicker recovery. Depending on the procedure, mini/microlaparoscopy may be performed in the operating room and is effectively used for: 

  • Diagnostic evaluation of pain

  • Lysis of adhesions

  • Mild endometriosis

  • Oophorectomy

  • Ovarian cystectomy

  • Simple hysterectomy  hysterectomy 

  • Tubal procedures

Few surgeons have mastered mini/microlaparoscopic. Finding a surgeon experienced in using this technique helps ensure you will have a positive outcome. If you need help finding an OB/GYN, use our Find a Doctor tool.


Cystoscopy is used to examine the inside of the bladder. Dr. Orady uses a cystoscope, a thin tube with a camera and light at the end, inserted through the urethra to visualize the inside of the bladder. Images are projected to a video monitor screen for your physician to view. A cystoscopy is used to investigate conditions such as blood in the urine (hematuria), frequent urinary tract infections (UTI), overactive bladder, urinary incontinence, urinary track blockage, or pelvic pain. A cystoscopy is usually performed in the office for: 

  • Diagnosis                

  • Vaginal procedures to correct injuries, defects, damage, or deformities of the vagina caused by childbirth or congenital or organic conditions are usually performed in the hospital and include:

  • Bartholin cyst marsupialization or resection

  • Conization of the cervix

  • Perineoplasty

  • Vaginal repair

  • Vulvoplasty
