Laparoscopic surgery refers to a minimally invasive surgery technique. Laparoscopic surgery involves small cuts being made instead of long and invasive cuts of 6 to 12 inches long.
Laparoscopic surgery is sometimes referred to as keyhole surgery since the surgeon makes cuts that are not usually more than half-inch long.
Benefits of Laparoscopic surgery are as follows:
Since Laparoscopic surgery is minimally invasive, it has some really important benefits to offer:
- Smaller scars
- Less hospitalization time
- Less of pain
- Early recovery
Laparoscopic surgery can be used to perform which operations?

- Removal of liver tissue
- Removal of pancreatic tissue
- Hernia repair
- Bariatric procedures
- Esophagus repair
- Partial removal or repair of colon or small bowel

Advancement in the field of Laparoscopic surgery
Laparoscopic surgery has had its share of advancements and Robotic Laparoscopy surgery is something that will change the paradigms of medical science and surgical procedures.
In the robotic version of laparoscopic surgery, a small cut is made and a camera is inserted through that as usual. Here the difference is that the surgeons set up a robot’s mechanical arms and control it via a Surgeon console unit.
The robotic version of the laparoscopic surgery lets the surgeons be more comfort. Therefore, right from detecting an abnormality to removing an abnormality, Laparoscopic surgery is now a preferred type of doing surgery!
