Laparoscopy is an operation performed through small incisions (usually 0.5–1 cm) and with the aid of a camera. This method can either be used to inspect and diagnose a condition or to perform surgery as a part of treatment. Laparoscopic surgery has revolutionized surgery to a great extent. This type of surgery ensures minimum discomfort, reduced medication, less of post-operative care and a shorter period of hospitalization.
