Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure where surgeons can access the inside of the abdomen and pelvis without making large incisions in the skin. It is minimally invasive performed using a laparoscope. There is a small tube used as the source of light and a camera that clicks images of the inside of the abdomen and relays them to a television monitor. The advantages of Laparoscopic Surgery over traditional surgeries:
- You don’t have to stay inside the hospital longer.
- The recovery is much faster than your expectations.
- There is less pain minimal loss of blood during the surgery.
- Reduced scarring as needed by everyone.
