What is Laparoscopic surgery?

Laparoscopic surgery is also known as MIS (Minimally Invasive surgery) or keyhole surgery. This surgical procedure is modern in which the operation is performed on the abdomen by making small incisions which are around 0.5 cm to 1.5cm, these are smaller as compared to the incisions required in the laparotomy.

During the surgery, images can be seen on TV monitors to see the surgical elements correctly. Patients can get many benefits with laparoscopic surgery as compared to open surgery. The pain is reduced because of the smaller incisions and less blood loss. Also, there is shorter hospital stay, better results, and less downtime.

The best part is that the patient can get back to a normal routine within 1 to 2 weeks. If you are planning to undergo the surgery then make sure to get in touch with the team of experienced urologists in Ludhiana.
