Laparoscopy is basically a modern surgical technique that requires smaller cuts or incisions as compared to open surgery. It is also widely known as Minimally invasive surgery all across the globe. In this type of surgery, a thin tube that has a tiny camera and light attached to its one end is used for the surgery. This tool is also known as a laparoscope; the video camera helps in the visualization of inside organs on a huge monitor screen and it also guides the doctor to perform the surgery with absolute precision. Earlier, in open surgery, large cuts were made in order to see the organs for performing the surgery. Open surgery had a lot of risks associated with it as compared to laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic surgery has certainly made surgical procedures easy to perform for doctors and safer for patients. Laparoscopic surgery works great, especially in abdominal areas as a doctor is able to use the instrument to visualize the organs more clearly so that there are zero chances of mishappening during the procedure.
