Laparoscopic Surgery is the surgical technique which involves using several small incisions which are 5-10mm in length. Thin tubes, called trocars, are placed through these incisions into the abdominal cavity. Carbon dioxide gas slowly inflates the abdomen. A long, thin camera is placed in one of the trocars and allows the surgical team to view the inside of the abdomen on a TV monitor. Specialized instruments are then placed in the other trocars so the surgeon may perform the operation.
