Laparoscopic surgery goes by various names – minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is one of them. It is also generally called ‘Keyhole Surgery’ and also ‘Band-aid Surgery’. All these indicate that this advanced surgical technique involves operations that are usually performed through microscopic incisions compared to normal open surgeries. Here the incisions are extremely small – just about 0.5 to 1.5 cm – is required.
Some of the other benefits of Laparoscopic surgery are that the post-operative scars are very small and the scar marks can soon become unnoticeable. The patient has to undergo much less post-operative pain and this is especially beneficial for senior citizens. The recovery time needed is also reduced and so the patient can leave the hospital relatively soon.
The biggest benefits are that the patient does not have to suffer much pain. The bleeding is kept to the minimum. And since the wound is smaller, the need for treatment of infection is reduced tremendously. Over the years there has been rapid development in the improvement of surgical techniques and the advancement of laparoscopic surgery instruments and equipment.
