LAPAROSCOPIC (KEY HOLE) SURGERY/ MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY
Laparoscopic Surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery or key hole surgery (Dubai). It is a modern surgical technique in which operations in the tummy are performed through small holes or incisions (usually 0.5 – 1.0cm), so that patient does not suffer from ill effects of larger incision as in open or traditional surgery.
Specialised instruments and a special camera known as a laparoscope are passed through these holes during the procedure after inflating abdomen by co2 gas so that surgeon will have working space. The laparoscope transmits images from the abdominal cavity to video monitors in the operating room. This arrangement allows surgeon to perform the same operations as traditional surgery but with smaller incisions.
