Laparoscopic (Keyhole) surgeries for all feasible conditions

Compared to open surgery, laparoscopic or keyhole surgical procedure is a minimally invasive procedure that requires only small incisions. The evolution of laparoscopic technique has enabled the patients to experience rapid recovery with less pain and discomfort.

What is Laparoscopic Surgery (Keyhole)?

Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure that allows the surgeon to have access to the body parts with minimal invasiveness. The surgery is mainly performed using an instrument called a laparoscope. This is a small tube-like instrument with a special camera. The instrument is inserted into the body so that the surgeon can see the organs properly and operate. After the procedure, the incisions are stitched and dressed. The surgery may leave small scars behind which is 0.5 to 1cm long.
