Adhesiolysis

Infertility and pelvic pain can sometimes be caused by scar tissue that joins two surfaces that are usually separate, causing the organs it attaches to become twisted or to move from their normal positions. The adhesions may present as thin sheets of tissue or thick fibrous bands. Adhesiolysis is the surgical procedure to remove or divide this tissue and restore normal position and function to the organs involved.

What happens during the procedure?

The procedure is done through laparoscopic methods (with a tiny incision) and takes between 2 – 4 hours depending of the type and extent of the adhesions. It is done under general anaesthesia and you would have to stay overnight at the hospital after the procedure. You can resume normal activities in a week’s time.

“We now know that 100% of women who have open pelvic surgery develop adhesions, which can impair their fertility later. That’s why, at Srushti, we choose Laparoscopy in cases where surgery is the most effective course to treat infertility, as there is a decreased risk of new adhesions forming.” – Dr.Divya Sivaraman, Surgeon and Fertility Consultant.
