Laparoscopic surgery is the process of using a small video camera and other small utensils to accompany a surgical procedure. The video camera allows an image of organs to be displayed on a monitor. Essentially, this monitor becomes the surgeon’s eyes during the procedure.
Benefits of laparoscopic surgery include:
- decreased post-op irritation
- faster recovery
- shorter stays in the hospital
- accelerated return to daily activities
- reduced scarring
