Laparoscopic/Open GI Cancer Surgery
What is a Laparoscopic Procedure?
A laparoscopic, or minimally invasive keyhole surgical procedure, is an alternative to traditional “open” surgery in which a large incision must be made. These small incisions create a passageway for special surgical instruments and a laparoscope. A laparoscope is a fiber-optic instrument that is inserted in the abdominal wall. This device transmits images from within the body to a video monitor, allowing the surgeon to see the operative area on the screen.
Advantages to the minimally invasive approach include:
- Quicker recovery
- Quicker return to normal activities and work
- Shorter hospital stay
- Reduced rate of infection
- Reduced recurrence rate
- Minimal scarring
