Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is also called minimally invasive surgery, keyhole surgery or bandaid surgery. Laparoscopic procedures can be performed using small incisions of around 0.5 to 1.5 cm that can be made far away from the surgical site. Small, thin surgical instruments can then be passed through the incision and threaded through to the operational site. The whole procedure is carried out using a laparoscope which is a small tube with a camera at the tip that can be used to relay images from inside the body to a TV monitor.
