The endometrium is the tissue lining the inside of the uterine cavity. Endometriosis is endometrial tissue found outside of the uterus in the pelvis & sometimes other areas of the body. It is often treated with laparoscopy utilizing laser or electrosurgical techniques.

A laser is a device that produces a very thin beam of light in which high energies are concentrated. In surgery, lasers can be used to operate on small areas of abnormality without damaging delicate surrounding tissue.

Lasers can be used to cut or destroy tissue. We typically use a CO2 laser for laparoscopic surgery for infertility and/or endometriosis. However, it is sometimes preferable to use other instruments such as electrocautery or scissors in these situations.
