A few tiny incisions are all that is needed for laparoscopic, or minimally invasive, surgery. This revolutionary approach involves using a videoscope and small instruments to perform operations that used to be done through large incisions. This major advance has allowed patients to experience decreased postoperative pain, minimal scarring and a much quicker return to their everyday lives.
