What is laparoscopy?
Laparoscopy is a surgical diagnostic procedure used to examine the organs inside the abdomen.
It uses an instrument called a laparoscope to look at the abdominal organs. It is a long, thin tube with a high-intensity light and a high-resolution camera at the front. The camera sends images to a video monitor during the surgery. The incision is as small as 5~10mm, so it is a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure.
Benefits of Laparoscopy
- Patients have much less pain and discomfort (Compared to open surgery, it is significantly less).
- Patients are able to go home sooner compared to the open surgery.
- Laparoscopic incision site is small and scars are almost invisible.
- It is also less likely to develop wound infections compared to open surgery.
- Period of recovery is short. Patients may get back to their daily life.
- A clear, wide operation sight is secured, which leads to more precise surgery.
