Laparoscopic surgery is a modern, minimally invasive, surgical technique. Abdominal operations are performed through multiple, small, less than one half inch incisions, as compared to larger incisions needed in traditional surgical procedures. Laparoscopic surgery includes operations within the abdominal or pelvic cavities.
There are several advantages to having your procedure done using laparoscopic techniques. These include a better cosmetic result, quicker recovery, less internal scarring, lower wound infections, and fewer incisional hernias when compared to the traditional open approach.
