Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique that uses small incisions and the use of a laparoscope to view the surgical area. Once the area is in view, the surgeon is able to perform the procedure effectively and efficiently with a reduced amount of pain, scarring, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery. Laparoscopic surgery is often used for abdominal surgery on the stomach, pancreas, liver, and bile duct.
