Minimally Invasive or Keyhole surgery is a modern
technique to cure many problems in the human body that
require surgery or operation. The technique uses 2 to
4 small holes of 2.7 to 10 mm diameter, in the abdomen
to perform the operation on the body parts inside. No
large cuts need to be made on the body as in earlier
days that would not only be painful, take days to heal
and in the end leave ugly scars.
The magic stick used to perform minimally
invasive surgeries is called the Laparoscope
instrument that is inserted into the body through a
small hole. Once inside, the laparoscope does the magic.
It lights the inside and has a camera that itself is
tiny but magnifies tiny body parts into manifold magnifications
that can be seen on a TV monitor by the surgeon. The
laparoscope facilitates the artistic hands of the surgeon
to perform the operation through highly specialized
instruments that are sent inside the body through other
Laparoscopic or Endosurgery procedures are simple, pain
lesser, cost smaller, scar lesser and recover faster.
