Laparoscopic surgery has become an established treatment for certain causes of infertility as a less traumatic alternative to conventional surgery (laparotomy). The classic indications for laparoscopy include endometriosis, pelvic adhesions, tubal disease, and drug-resistant polycystic ovarian syndrome. Uterine fibroids can also reduce fertility, and as long as they are not over-large or too numerous, can often be excised laparoscopically.
