Laparoscopic Surgery


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
