PMID:  3288117     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Pelviscopy has positive aspects for the patient. The procedure reduces the amount of time the patient spends in surgery, the recovery period, and the amount of time the patient must be away from work. Much like other endoscopic procedures, pelviscopy incurs little or no bleeding, and reduces inflammatory tissue response.
