Laparoscopic Ovarian Drilling

Laparoscopic ovarian Drilling is a minimally invasive surgical method of inducing ovulation. The laparoscopic surgeon “drills” 5 to 6 holes in the substance of each ovary using a special needle like instrument. We are not entirely sure how this mechanism helps induce ovulation. It may do so by destroying excess amount of androgen secreting ovarian tissue. Most women become ovulatory following surgery and about 50% of these women conceive naturally within a year of undergoing the surgery.
