Why is Laparoscopic Surgery used?
Because it’s less invasive, you will also recover faster, heal with less pain and have less scarring than with open surgery. Another benefit is that you will only need to stay in the hospital for a short period, on an outpatient basis. In essence, that’s all because the incision is so much smaller than the usual open incision.
Sometimes it even means there is no visible incision at all, depending on the technique your surgeon uses during the procedure.
Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgery
– less risk of infections
– faster recovery
– same level of successful outcome
In some cases, the procedure may start as minimally invasive, but later the surgeon may decide to change the procedure into an open surgery, if some difficulties such as abnormal anatomy or inflammation are met which could create serious complications.
Alternatives to Laparoscopic Surgery
Some surgeries are still performed using the traditional open incision, but many more are being done using minimally invasive techniques.
