Laparoscopy surgery

Laparoscopies are a minimally invasive procedure in which surgeons insert a small camera along with other specialized equipment into the patient’s abdomen through small incisions, leading to minimal scarring. Some are same day procedures.
This procedure is done under general anesthesia. The surgeon does one or more small incisions on the abdomen to insert the necessary tools. This procedure has a large variety of uses, it could be used to diagnose conditions in the abdomen or to perform other procedures that would otherwise require open surgery.
Depending on the doctor and the needs of the patient, the procedure might be a robotically assisted surgery.
