Microsurgery

Microsurgery may be used for procedures such as the reversal of sterilisation (tubal anastomosis), the re-opening of blocked tubes (salpingostomy) and the removal of scar tissue around the uterus, tubes and ovaries (adhesiolysis).

Microsurgery involves specialised operative techniques, including the use of an operating microscope. Surgeons trained in microsurgery use these skills and techniques for the repair of very small structures or obstruction, in the fallopian tubes.
