There are a wide variety of surgical procedures that can now be performed in an outpatient hospital. Procedures that once required an overnight stay at the hospital can now be performed differently, allowing you to be in and out of the hospital on the same day. Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive way to perform surgery and is done through small incisions in the body generally 0.5–1.5 cm in length, depending on the procedure.
There are many benefits for the patient when choosing laparoscopic surgery over conventional surgery. The incision sites are smaller, less painful, and the recovery time is shorter. The chance of infection is also minimal.
