Laparoscopic surgery is an operation in which inside of the abdomen is examined by means of a telescope called a laparoscope. The operation is performed by making two or three small punctures (about 0.5 to 1 cm in size) on the abdomen – i.e., without making a big incision. In fact, no other test or investigation can diagnose adhesions with certainty – looking for them through a laparoscope is the only way confirming their presence. If the surgeon encounters adhesions, they can be easily divided using long laparoscopic instruments. The procedure is called adhesiolysis. A patient recovers quickly after laparoscopic surgery for adhesions as he / she has very little pain.
