Laparoscopic Tubal Ligation

What is a Laparoscopic Tubal Ligation

Laparoscopy enables the physician to complete tubal ligation or tubal removal by making a small incision near the navel. This smaller incision reduces recovery time after surgery and the risk of complications. In most cases, the woman can leave the surgery facility within four hours after laparoscopy.
