Laparoscopy is a method to see into the abdomen through small incisions, about a quarter of an inch long. It may take 2-3 incisions to accomplish a surgery. Carbon dioxide is used to distend the abdominal wall so that your internal organs may be seen.
By using a scope, the ovaries, uterus, ureters (kidney tubes), intestines, liver and abdominal wall are visible. By visualizing these structures, Dr. Basinski or Dr. Juran are able to diagnose conditions that may be causing you pain or bleeding.
The surgery can take as little as 10 minutes or up to an hour depending on what needs to be done. If you have a lot of scar tissue, it may take more time to remove the scar tissue. If you have endometriosis, additional time may be needed to remove visible endometriotic implants.
The doctor can usually remove one or both ovaries with the laparoscope and bring them through a 1 inch incision above the pubic hairline.
Most women can return to work in 2-7 days after the procedure.
"Compassionate quality care. Knowledgeable staff. I had three procedures done with Dr. Bazinski. She is wonderful, she made me feel comfortable. Everything was explained before my procedure. She answered all my questions and was there for continued support."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Mar 18, 2017

"Saw Dr. Juran for the first time today and she is literally one of the nicest people I've ever met. I walked in completely uncomfortable and anxious and walked out feeling so much calmer and like my doctor really cared about me!!"- Y. / Wellness / Jun 29, 2017
"I moved her from NJ and found Dr. Juran and I am so glad I did. She is an extremely knowledgeable Doctor who listens to what you have to say and helps you make the best decision for your circumstances. Before and after my surgery, she was attentive and checked up on me periodically. Not only is she a great Doctor, but she is a sweet woman. The staff is great as well. I will continue to be seen by her and look forward to my visits."- K.T. / Wellness / Jun 19, 2017
"I have been seeing Dr. Juran for a year now after being referred to her office by 2 friends at work. I was having some major issues that had gone on for quite some time. I had seen another GYN and was so unhappy with every aspect of my treatment that I was ready to just 'live with it'. After calling Dr. Jurans office and explaining my situation they got me in to the office the very next day. After my exam we discussed options and chose a course of action. Dr. Juran told me not to worry, that she was going to have me better and she was right! She did not need 6 months of 'let's try this' or a half dozen consultations. She knew right away I needed help and she hopped to it! I have never felt better in my life and I have her to thank for it. I truly feel like she saved my life. I highly recommend this kind caring woman to anyone needing a GYN."- J. / Wellness / Jun 19, 2017
