Laparoscopic Surgery in Tuscaloosa

Minimally Invasive Surgery Leads to Faster Recovery Times

The purpose of laparoscopic surgery, which first emerged in the 1980s, is for faster post-operative healing times compared to traditional surgery. That’s because laparoscopic surgery is performed through smaller incisions, and surgeons utilize tiny surgical instruments. The laparoscope is an instrument the surgical team uses to view the inside of the body with a fiberoptic system attached to a video camera that connects to a television in the operating room. This allows the surgical team to view the patient’s surgical treatment area without the need for large incisions, and it inflicts less damage to surrounding healthy tissues. The continual innovations in laparoscopic surgery make it possible for surgeons to utilize this technique to treat a wide range of conditions.

Some of the benefits of laparoscopic surgery over open surgery include:

  • Smaller scars
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • You’ll be able to get back to your everyday activities sooner
  • Less internal scarring
