Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic procedures 

performed include:

  • Hernia repair

  • Gallbladder removal

  • Appendectomy

  • Bowel Resection

Laparoscopic surgery, or minimally invasive surgery, is done with very small incisions and the help of a video camera positioned in the patient's body which serves 

as the surgeon's eyes during the surgery.
