A laparoscopic, or minimally invasive 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. This device transmits images from within the body to a video monitor, allowing the surgeon to see the operative area on the screen.
