Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure used to examine and operate on the organs inside the abdomen. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that requires only small incisions. Laparoscopy uses an instrument called a laparoscope to look inside the abdomen. A laparoscope is a long, thin cylindrical instrument with a high-intensity light and a high-resolution camera attached to it. The instrument is inserted through an incision(10mm) in the abdominal wall. As it moves along, the camera sends images to a video monitor. Two to three laparoscopic instruments are inserted into the abdominal cavity through even smaller incisions(5mm) for the operation Laparoscopy allows your doctor to see inside your body in real time, without open surgery.
