Key Hole Surgery
Key Hole surgery or the
Laparoscopic surgery is a revolutionary method of performing
operations that is less invasive than traditional open surgery.
The technique involves the use of a scope that magnifies the
internal structures and projects the image on video monitors in
the operating room.
Special surgical instruments
are introduced through small incisions placed by the surgeon to
make repairs. This results in smaller incisions, less pain,
little or no scarring and a greatly reduced recovery time. This
is a big improvement over days of hospital recovery and weeks of
rest at home that are required following traditional open
Open traditional surgery is
very stressful to the body because of the incision that is made.
The pain invoked and the healing process of nerve and muscle
tissue causes a great deal of stress to the body. Key Hole
approach to surgery decreases stress. Very small incisions are
made (One inch) vs large incisions (6 to 7 inches). Because the
stress to the body is greatly reduced, this approach many more
patients can undergo this surgery that they would otherwise not
be able to tolerate.
Minimally invasive surgical
techniques have been used in gynecologic surgery for nearly 3
decades and today more than 90% of all gall bladder surgery is
performed using these techniques, which can apply to a broad
range of procedures including hernia, heartburn and lung
