Laparoscopic surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. Tiny cuts are made in the patient’s belly. Gas is filled inside to create a small bubble. Doctors perform laparoscopy with a pencil-thin instrument called a laparoscope. It has a powerful light and a miniature camera that sends images of the surgery area to a video monitor above the operating table. The entry for the Laparoscope is usually through the umbilicus (belly button) and additional accessory tiny holes in the abdomen are utilized, allowing the slim operative instruments to be inserted. It is used to diagnose and treat many different conditions and diseases. At the conclusion of the surgery, the instruments are withdrawn, gas released and tiny cuts are closed with dissolvable sutures below the skin.
