What is an Adhesion?
An adhesion is a band of scar-like tissue that occurs when the body tries to heal itself after an invasive surgery. This tissue can prevent internal organs from moving around, causing them to become twisted or pulled from their normal positions.
Adhesions are caused by open surgery. Studies show that up to 100% of women who have open pelvic surgery develop adhesions.
Laparoscopy is the best solution because it’s minimally invasive, preventing other adhesions from occurring. This is especially important if you’re considering pelvic surgery.
