What is a laparoscopy?
Laparoscopy uses a laparoscope, a thin tube containing a video camera. The laparoscope is placed through a small incision in the abdomen and produces images that can be seen on a computer screen. Several small tubes are placed in the abdomen. Different instruments are placed through these tubes in order to perform surgical procedures.
The advantage of laparoscopy is that it allows a direct view of the abdominal organs and structures without the need for major surgery. Laparoscopy also allows surgical procedures to be performed using small incisions.
What are the reasons for the procedure?
There may be other reasons for your physician to recommend a laparoscopy.
