Laparoscopic surgery, also known as keyhole surgery, is a Minimally-Invasive surgery technique that allows surgeons to operate with small incisions ranging from 0.5cm – 1.5cm.
Thin operating instruments are inserted through the incisions, along with a camera called a laparoscope, that provides the vision of the operating field.
With advances in optics and lighting, laparoscopic surgery has become an increasingly preferred option over open surgery as recovery is faster and less painful. Post-operative scars are also smaller compared to open surgery where larger incisions are often made.
Laparoscopic surgery can be used to treat various gynaecological conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids, chronic pelvic pain, and pelvic prolapse.
Robotic surgery is an advanced approach that gives surgeons more control and precision during the operation. Small surgical instruments and a laparoscope that broadcasts magnified, high-definition images to a monitor are held by precise robotic arms that are controlled by the surgeon from a console in the operating room.
