Also known as minimally invasive surgery, laparoscopic surgery is the use of a lighted camera and long, thin instruments to perform operations through small incisions. Over the last 20+ years, laparoscopic surgery has become a proven technology with numerous benefits to patients. It has been applied to many of the operations performed in the abdomen and has become the standard of care for several of them. Not all abdominal operations are able to be completed laparoscopically, but the surgeons at Tri-State Surgical Associates have over 40 years combined advanced laparoscopic experience and, if feasible, will offer a laparoscopic approach to most abdominal operations we perform.
Advantages of laparoscopic surgery include:
- Less pain
- Shorter recovery time
- Smaller incisions (which mean minimal internal scarring)
- Less blood loss
- Shorter hospital stay or no hospital stay
