Lakecity Hospital has advanced laparoscopic surgical instruments for performing surgeries on regular basis. Laparoscopic surgery has much higher success rate than conventional surgery. Laparoscopic surgery is also referred as minimally invasive surgery. In this surgery type, an instrument known as laparoscope is used. A laparoscope is a long, thin tube with a high-intensity light and a high-resolution camera at the front. During the minimally invasive surgical procedure, small incisions of up to half an inch are made and laparoscope is placed through these incisions. The camera and the instruments are then passed through the ports which allow access to the inside of the patient.
