General Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery has several advantages over traditional, open surgery. Laparoscopic surgery is less invasive and requires only small incisions. It is associated with less pain, bleeding, complications, and scarring. Additionally, less invasive surgery methods tend to require a shorter hospital stay and have a quicker recovery time. In some cases, surgeries may be performed as outpatient procedures.

Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a laparoscope to view internal body structures and organs. A laparoscope is a thin tube with a light and a camera. It is inserted into the body through small incisions called trocars. Images from the laparoscope may be sent to a video monitor. Thin surgical instruments are inserted through the trocars during the surgery.
