Laparoscopy

 

Laparoscopy (non invasive key hole surgery) is a procedure which allows the surgeon to see the organs inside the abdomen and pelvis. 

A laprascope is inserted into the abdomen via a small incision (5/10mm) The laprascope is fitted with a video camera and light source. Images of the abdomen and pelvic organs are displayed onto a video monitor and photographs are taken.
