Dr Gavin Kemball

A fertility specialist for life

Laparoscopy

This is a common diagnostic test for infertility, as well as for ovarian cysts or pelvic pain. You will need to have a general anaesthetic, so it is performed in an operating theatre. Dr Kemball performs laparoscopic surgery at St George Hospital or City East Specialist Day Hospital in Maroubra.

A laparoscope (a tiny telescope) is passed through an incision in the umbilicus to view your uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries and pelvic cavity. By injecting dye through the uterus, Dr Kemball can check your fallopian tubes are not blocked.
