Laparoscopic Surgery

Specialty of Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is a mininvasive surgical technique that allows the specialist to diagnose or treat pathologies without extensive surgical incisions. During laparoscopic surgery a laparoscope is introduced in the abdomen, ie a thin tube (about 5-10mm in diameter) equipped with an illumination system and a fiber optic camera that transmits the images to a monitor. The benefits of laparoscopic surgery are numerous. Although surgical times are the same as those of traditional surgery, laparoscopy has a much faster postoperative recovery, a risk of reduced complications, less intraoperative bleeding, and a minor aesthetic and psychological impact. Numerous abdominal interventions can be performed using laparoscopic technique.
