What is laparoscopy?

This is a surgical diagnostic method used to analyse the organs inside the abdomen. Compared to open surgery, laparoscopic surgery creates only small cuts.

The name is derived from a slender tool known as Laparoscope that has a tiny video camera and light attached to an end. The surgeon inserts this instrument through a small cut into your body. As it moves along, the camera sends video to the monitor and the doctor can analyze inside of your body by looking at the visuals. He can also collect biopsy samples during this procedure.
