ABOUT LAP SURGERY
 


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… an 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 keyholes.

Laparoscopic or Endosurgery procedures are simple, pain lesser, cost smaller, scar lesser and recover faster.

The way most operations are now being done using laparoscopy, the saying in medical circles goes -

"A doctor without a scope has no scope."
