Laparoscopy has played an important part in field of Gynecology since the early 1970's.
Initially used for diagnostic purposes, surgical sterilization was quickly found to be feasible through minimally invasive surgery. Infertility and ectopic pregnancy procedures were then adopted, and now many more complex procedures can be performed through the small incisions needed for laparoscopic surgery.
