Laparoscopic, or keyhole, surgery has revolutionised general surgery. Using a high definition video camera and thin instruments, complex operations are performed through a number of cuts on the abdomen as small as a centimetre. Laparoscopy offers exceptional vision, meticulous precision and safety. Smaller wounds mean less pain, smaller scars, less recovery time and a faster return to normal life.
Common laparoscopic general surgical operations:
- Hernia repair
Gastrointestinal cancer management often involves a laparoscopic examination under anaesthesia (a diagnostic or staging laparoscopy) to assess how far the cancer has progressed. Depending on the location and stage of the cancer, laparoscopic resection may be an option.
