What Is Laparoscopic Surgery?
Laparoscopic surgery uses a laparoscope—a long, slender device with a camera attached—to view the abdominal and pelvic organs on a screen. It uses a small incision to insert the camera. If the laparoscope detects an issue that needs to be fixed surgically, instruments can be inserted through the same incision or through additional small incisions. Surgeries that can be done with laparoscopy include tubal ligation and a hysterectomy.
Minimally invasive surgery has many benefits, including:
- Less pain
- Shorter hospital stays and recovery times
- Faster healing
- Smaller scars
- Lower risk of post-surgery infection
