Laparoscopic surgery, also known as “Laparoscopic camera surgery,” was among the earliest forms of minimally invasive surgery in the medical field. This approach allows surgeons to address a wide range of surgical conditions with many added benefits. This technology allows operations to be performed through small incisions in your belly, utilizing specialized instruments and cameras to treat your surgical condition.

HOW IS LAPAROSCOPY SURGERY PERFORMED?
Laparoscopic surgery begins with making small incisions (5-10 millimeters) under the abdominal skin to introduce small surgical instruments and a camera, which allows the doctor to observe, cut, and seal the internal organs and tissues.
To avoid any pain or discomfort, you will be given a sedative anaesthetic. The length of the procedure is determined by the type of surgery, however, it normally takes less time than open surgery.
POSSIBLE RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS
Laparoscopic surgery allows for fewer surgical incisions and is generally less risky than standard open surgeries. As is the case with every surgery, there are always potential risks or complications involved. Your doctor will discuss each of these with you prior to any surgery.
