Basic Laparoscopic Procedures

Laparoscopic surgery, also known as minimally invasive surgery, involves making small incisions in the abdomen and inserting a camera to see inside the patient. Long instruments are then placed in the abdomen to perform the surgery. Laparoscopic procedures typically result in less pain and
quicker recovery.
