What Is Laparoscopic Surgery?
Laparoscopic Surgery is the medical term for what is more commonly known as ‘keyhole surgery in the abdomen and pelvic region. Avoiding large incisions, laparoscopy involves inserting a small tube with a camera which relays images to a television monitor allowing the surgeon to inspect the internal tissue.
The Advantages of Laparoscopic Surgery
Keyhole surgery is our speciality at Manchester Gynaecologist and one modality of this is the full range of advanced laparoscopic surgical options we provide.
Laparoscopic surgery combines the benefits of simplicity and short hospital stays, most of which are usually a day to overnight stay, with faster recovery and minimal abdominal scarring.
