2. Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery (MIS), Band-Aid surgery, keyhole surgery is a modern surgical technique in which operations in the abdomen are performed through small incisions (usually 0.5-1.5cm) as compared to larger incisions needed in traditional surgical procedures. There are a number of advantages to the patient with laparoscopic surgery versus an open procedure. These include reduced pain due to smaller incisions and hemorrhaging, and shorter recovery time. Advantages; there are a number of advantages to the patient with laparoscopic surgery versus an open procedure. These include: Reduced hemorrhaging , which reduces the chance of needing a blood transfusion. Smaller incision, which reduces pain and shortens recovery time, as well as resulting in less post-operative scarring. Less pain, leading to less pain medication needed. Although procedure times are usually slightly longer, hospital stay is less, and often with a same day discharge which leads to a faster return to everyday living. Reduced exposure of internal organs to possible external contaminants thereby reduced risk of acquiring infections.
