LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY

What is a Laparoscopic surgery?

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is also known as key-hole or laparoscopic surgery.

This surgical technique is good for patients as there is less complications when compared to open surgery. Patients benefit from good cosmesis and less post-operative pain. Furthermore, hospital stay and recovery time is shortened.
