Dear Katie

The process can be accomplished either through a laparoscopy (keyhole surgery) or by means of a laparotomy (open procedure). Currently there is far higher success with the open procedure although the laparoscopic approach seems to be gaining popularity. However there is limited data on success via the laparoscope and therefore I can only recommend the open procedure at this stage. Also this is a one off attempt and should it not be successful, a second attempt is usually ill advised.
