What is Laparoscopy?
Laparoscopy, also known as keyhole surgery is a medical procedure performed in the abdomen or pelvis using small incisions with the aid of a camera.
How is laparoscopy done?
During laparoscopy, the surgeon makes a small cut, usually near your belly button. A tube is inserted through the incision, and carbon dioxide gas is pumped through the tube to inflate your abdomen to see your organs more clearly with the help of an inserted camera and make room to work. After the procedure, the carbon dioxide is let out of your abdomen, the incisions are closed using stitches or clips, and are dressing properly.
