Pelvic pain is a generalized term that can mean numerous different things in the gynecologic world. Treatments for pelvic pain are determined by the actual cause of the pelvic pain. Sometimes patient's pelvic pain is so vague, that there is no other way to determine the cause of the pain without a diagnostic procedure such as a laparoscopy. A laparoscopy is a surgical procedure in which a telescope type instrument is placed through the bellybutton and the abdomen is distended with Co2 gas and the entire pelvis is inspected. This will diagnose the etiology of the patient's pain, and from there, we will decide on certain treatment plans or possibly be able to treat the problem at the time of the surgery.
