In our state of the art, accredited operating room and recovery suite we perform laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures. A staff of board certified anesthesiologists, registered nurses, and surgical technicians dedicated solely to gynecologic procedures complement our reproductive surgeons. We are able to provide specialty hospital level care, in a safe, private and personalized environment.
California Fertility Partners specializes in reproductive surgery.
Reproductive surgery remains one of the foundations of fertility care at California Fertility Partners. All of our physicians have completed extensive reproductive surgery training and have accumulated years of experience in restorative reproductive surgery. The goal of reproductive surgery is to correct defects, whether congenital or acquired, to restore normal anatomy and the spatial relationships between the fallopian tubes, ovaries and pelvic structures to allow for natural reproductive function.
Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure that allows us to look directly into the pelvic cavity through a narrow telescope-like instrument placed through the navel area. This procedure allows visualization of endometriosis, adhesions and other conditions that can cause infertility. These conditions can often times be treated directly by lysis of the adhesions, excision of ovarian cysts, and laser of endometriosis.
If the surgical findings are too extensive to correct by laparoscopy, then a laparotomy – which is a larger incision in the abdominal wall – may be recommended to provide greater access to the pelvic organs and provide greater ability to restore the diseased tissues. Uterine fibroids, large ovarian cysts, and extensive pelvic adhesive disease are often removed though this larger incision. Laparotomy procedures are performed at one of our affiliated local hospitals.
Hysteroscopy is an outpatient surgical procedure in which a telescope is inserted through the cervix into the uterus. This procedure allows visualization of the uterine cavity to diagnose conditions, which can cause infertility and miscarriages such as polyps, fibroids, adhesions, and congenital defects. Uterine abnormalities can often be corrected by operating directly through the hysterscope.
