Laparoscopic surgery is often referred to as minimally invasive surgery due to the technique of using small incisions and the assistance of a lighted video camera (or laparoscope) to perform the surgical procedure.
During the procedure, small incisions are made, small instruments are used to operate and the laparoscope allows the surgeon to clearly view the area of concern on a television monitor. The benefits of laparoscopic surgery include shorter hospital stays, reduced postoperative discomfort, quicker recovery times and less visible scarring.
