Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Surgery
Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery (MIS), is a modern surgical technique in which operations in the abdomen are performed through small incisions, as opposed to the larger incisions needed in conventional open surgery. It is considered the most important innovative advance in the history of surgery since the invention of anesthesia.

Laparoscopic surgery makes use of images displayed on TV monitors to magnify the surgical elements, and to be able to do the entire operation using specialized instruments, with the smallest incisions and minimal amounts of dissection.
There are a number of advantages to patients with laparoscopic surgery:
- Less pain and discomfort.
- Better cosmetic results.
- Quicker recovery.
- Less hospital stay.
