Laparoscopy, also known as keyhole surgery or minimally invasive surgery, is a type of surgical procedure that allows a surgeon to access the inside of the abdomen and pelvis without making large incisions in the skin. The surgeon uses a thin, lighted tube called a laparoscope to see inside the body and perform the surgery. This method has many benefits over traditional open surgery, such as a shorter hospital stay, quicker recovery, less pain, less bleeding, and less scarring. Laparoscopy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including the removal of the appendix, gallbladder, and hernias, as well as weight loss surgery. Robotic-assisted laparoscopy is also available, where a robot is used to assist the surgeon with the procedure, providing greater precision and smaller incisions.
