Minimal Invasive (Laparoscopic) Surgery

What is Laparoscopic surgery?

This is a minimum invasive surgery that allows the surgeon to perform the procedure using a small incision and visualizing the site through a small telescope-like instrument. This is a great benefit to the patient since small incisions heal with less discomfort and usually results in a shorter hospital stay.
