A laparoscopy is a surgical procedure that allows viewing of the internal pelvic organs. During the procedure, a long narrow fiberoptic instrument, called a laparoscope, is usually inserted through an incision in or below the woman's navel. One or more additional incisions may be made for inserting additional instruments.
