At times, the procedure is performed to look for the cause of pelvic pain or infertility, and is called a “diagnostic” laparoscopy. Once disease is identified, however, the surgeon should be capable of performing an “operative” laparoscopy, and actually treat the disease. Instruments such as laser can be useful in some cases to treat adhesions and endometriosis.
