Laparoscopy is a procedure that examines the organs of the abdomen. A narrow-illuminated tube with a video camera is used in laparoscopy. A laparoscope is a name for the tube. It is inserted into a small cut or incision in the stomach. The images from the video camera can be viewed on a computer screen.
Laparoscopy has the advantage of being minimally invasive, involving a small cut in the stomach. Compared to open surgery, laparoscopy usually takes less time and has a quicker recovery.
