Laparoscopic Surgery Phoenix AZ


Laparoscopy is a way of performing a surgery. Instead of making a large incision (or cut) for certain operations, surgeons make tiny incisions and insert tiny instruments and a camera into a site, such as into the abdomen, to view the internal organs and repair or remove tissue.

For patients, laparoscopy can often mean a faster recovery from surgery, less time in the hospital or outpatient surgery center, and less trauma to the body. Doctors do not have to slice through large abdominal muscles to reach vital organs.

Laparoscopic instruments and techniques are used for a variety of procedures, including knee and shoulder surgery.

General surgery operations now often performed laparoscopically include the following, among many others:

  • Removal of diseased organs such as the gallbladder or appendix
  • Removal or repair of diseased parts of the colon or stomach (digestive system)
  • Repair of a hernia
  • To view the abdomen for signs of disease that has been difficult to diagnose (exploratory surgery)
  • To view a tumor in the abdomen
  • To check the source of abdominal pain or remove scar tissue
  • To look for the source of internal bleeding or fluid buildup if the patient has a normal blood pressure
