What is Laparoscopic Surgery?
A class of surgical procedures performed through very small incisions in the abdomen, using specialized instruments. A pencil-thin viewing mechanism called a laparoscope is used to provide access and visibility inside of the abdominal cavity. Laparoscopic surgery patients have faster recovery time and less pain.
