Fertility Surgery Treatments at Taiwan IVF Group

Fertility specialists at Taiwan IVF Group turn to fertility surgeries primarily to correct anatomic defects that may be impairing your ability to conceive. By contrast, non-surgical fertility treatments use fertility drugs to treat infertility caused by biochemical abnormalities, e.g. hormone imbalances.

Why is Taiwan IVF Group at the pinnacle of surgical fertility treatment in Taiwan?

Taiwan IVF Group’s fertility doctors are considered highly skilled in the surgical and micro-surgical techniques used to correct these conditions, and use minimally invasive techniques wherever possible.

Our in-house ambulatory surgery center was specifically designed and built for fertility-related surgical procedures, and is fully equipped with the latest technologies supported by expert staff.

Which conditions require Surgery?

For women, some common situations where surgery is required include the removal of uterine fibroids, polyps, pelvic adhesions, and endometriosis tissue.

For men, surgical treatments include vasectomy reversal and varicocele repair, a procedure treating varicose veins in the scrotum.

In any case, Taiwan IVF Group’s fertility specialists offer a variety of innovative, advanced fertility surgeries to address your unique situation.

Infertility Laparoscopy for Diagnosis and Treatment of Tubal Factor Infertility

Laparoscopy is considered the gold standard for the detection and treatment of tubal disease, and should be considered in any patient with risk factors for tubal disease such as a history of sexually transmitted disease, pelvic inflammatory disease, previous pelvic surgery, or appendectomy. Despite what you may have heard, tubal reversal (revering a previous tubal ligation) is not straightforward or easy, and is not a major focus of our practice.

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that allows the surgeon to both view and treat anatomic abnormalities by using a very small fiber-optic lens inserted through a small incision in the navel. If necessary, additional small incisions are made to allow the use of other specialized surgical instruments during the procedure. Because laparoscopy lets the surgeon perform exploratory surgery to reveal pelvic defects, as well as perform surgical excision to treat these defects – all in one minimally invasive operation – it has become an invaluable part of infertility diagnosis and treatment.

How is laparoscopy performed?

For an infertility laparoscopy procedure, your surgeon will:

  • Administer general anesthesia
  • Insert the laparoscope, which is a bright, lighted fiber optic tube, through a small abdominal incision; surgical instruments that may be required are also inserted.
  • Fill the abdomen with carbon dioxide gas. This causes the abdominal cavity to expand, giving your surgeon a clear view of the reproductive organs.
  • Evaluate the outside of the uterus and fallopian tubes for anomalies and repair them surgically.
  • Laparoscopy is done during the early part of the menstrual cycle to avoid disruption of possible early pregnancy.

Laparoscopy is Useful for Diagnosis and Treatment (Removal) of:

  • Endometriosis lesions
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Tubal adhesions
  • Hydrosalpinx

Advantages of Laparoscopy over Traditional Abdominal Surgery (Laparotomy)

  • Many diseases and abnormalities of the abdomen and pelvis can be safely treated using laparoscopy.
  • Special laparoscopic instruments allow the surgeon to incise, biopsy, cauterize, or vaporize problem areas without the need for a large abdominal incision.
  • Smaller incisions mean less discomfort and pain and reduced recovery time. Laparoscopic patients typically can return to normal activities after only two to three days of recovery.

What is Hysteroscopy?

Hysteroscopy is a surgical procedure used for looking within the uterine cavity (diagnostic hysteroscopy) and performing necessary sampling (biopsies) and corrections (operative hysteroscopy). It is not laparoscopy (laparoscopy uses abdominal incisions). However, hysteroscopy may be performed in conjunction with laparoscopy. The hysteroscopy procedure consists of gently dilating the canal of the cervix, and inserting a narrow viewing instrument (hysteroscope) directly through the canal into the uterine cavity. Hysteroscopy allows for direct and clear visualization of the cavity, and enables treatments of abnormalities such as polyps, fibroids, and projections of the uterine wall.
