Minimally Invasive General Surgery


What is Laparoscopic Surgery

Minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery is a modern surgical technique that uses small incisions, usually 0.5 to 1.5 centimeters, to access the inside of the body. Through these incisions, specialized surgical instruments and a laparoscopic camera are inserted, allowing the surgeon to see and operate on the affected area without the need for large cuts.



Patients typically experience a faster recovery compared to traditional open surgery and reduced recovery times in a host of ways.

Reduces pain

Postoperatively, the small incisions cause less trauma to the body, resulting in less pain after surgery.

Lower risk

If we refer to possible infections, the reduced size of the incisions reduces exposure to pathogens.

Best result

Aesthetically, another advantage is that the scars are significantly smaller and less visible.

Hospital stay

Thanks to this procedure, many patients are able to return home the same day of surgery without the need for a hospital stay.
