Laparoscopic surgery is also called Minimal Invasive Surgery (MIS), Band-Aid surgery or Keyhole Surgery. This is a modern surgical technique in which operations in the abdomen are performed through small incisions (usually 0.5 – 1.0 cm) as compared to larger incisions needed in traditional surgery procedures.
Laparoscopy is a procedure that allows looking directly at the contents of a patient’s abdomen or pelvis, including the fallopian tubes, ovaries, uterus, small bowel, large bowel, appendix, liver, and gallbladder. Many advanced surgeries are now performed through laparoscopic procedures..
