Laparoscopic removal of endometrioma or endometriosis is a surgical procedure that is performed to remove endometriomas or endometriosis tissue from the ovaries or other pelvic organs using laparoscopy.

Endometriomas are cysts that form when endometrial tissue (the tissue that lines the uterus) grows outside the uterus, most commonly on the ovaries. Endometriosis is a condition where this same tissue grows outside of the uterus and can cause painful periods, infertility, and other symptoms.

During the laparoscopic procedure, a surgeon will make several small incisions in the abdomen and insert a laparoscope, which is a thin, lighted instrument with a camera, to view the pelvic area. The surgeon will then use other specialized instruments to remove the endometriomas or endometriosis tissue while minimizing damage to surrounding organs.

Laparoscopic removal of endometriomas or endometriosis is preferred over open surgery because it is less invasive, results in less scarring, and typically requires a shorter recovery time. After the surgery, patients may experience some mild discomfort, but most can return to their normal activities within a few days to a week.
