Laparoscopic surgery is typically performed using small incisions to remove a tumor or small section of gland.
What happens during the procedure?
Laparoscopic procedures are performed with small incisions in the abdomen through which telescope-guided instruments are placed. With laparoscopic procedures, surgeons are generally able to reduce blood loss and risk of infection for the patient.
What are the benefits of the procedure?
Most patients who are candidates for the laparoscopic procedure may experience smaller incisions, shorter hospital stays, reduction in blood loss and a lower risk rate of infection.
