Laparoscopic surgery is also known as keyhole surgery or minimally invasive surgery (MIS). The technique enables surgeons to view, access and remove sections or entire organs through very small incisions rather than large incisions that cause extensive tissue damage, longer healing processes and greater risk of infection. Today, more facilities and surgeons utilize such techniques to perform a variety of surgeries, from liposuction to heart valve replacement.
Individuals undergoing laparoscopic surgeries have shortened recovery times as well as less postoperative pain. Smaller incisions decrease the chance of complications such as infection and offer decreased mortality rates. The fiber-optic instruments and video cameras attached to the laparoscope enable surgeons to view the surgical area on a monitor while utilizing special instruments that avoid surrounding tissue damage of the surgical area.
Hand access devices in laparoscopic surgery enable surgeons to perform a variety of functions, such as pancreatectomy and liver resection procedures. Advancements in technology are increasing capabilities of single port entry techniques for more complex surgical procedures. Laparoscopic techniques are used in orthopedic, obesity and bariatric surgical procedures, cosmetic surgery fields, cardiac or heart care and chronic disease treatments, among others.
Laparoscopic gallbladder removal, groin hernia repair and laparoscopic inguinal or ventral hernia repair are just a few of the procedures performed through laparoscopic surgical techniques. Facilities such as Laparoscopic Solutions in Coahuila, Mexico or the world-renowned facilities of Jordan Hospital and Medical Center in Amman, Jordan make good use of such procedures to enhance patient care and reduce surgical and post-surgical complications.
