Minimally Invasive Surgery (Laparoscopic)

Why Choose Florida Hospital?

A procedure used to examine organs and tissue in the abdominal cavity, minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery (laparoscopy) provides surgeons a view of the inside of the body through a tiny incision. Florida Hospital surgeons insert specialized surgical tools through other small incisions to perform procedures while viewing the surgery site on a monitor from the laparoscopic camera—eliminating the need for an “open” surgery through a much larger incision. We offer this minimally invasive procedure to patients to reduce pain, scarring, recovery time, risk of complication during surgery and to improve the overall care we provide for patients.

Eliminating the need for major open surgery to diagnose and treat qualified patients, the laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy) requires only a small incision in the abdomen. Through this incision, surgeons insert a small tube with a light and camera lens on the end. The camera produces images on the computer screen to help surgeons view the organs and tissue in the abdominal cavity through the tube without creating a major incision. Carbon dioxide gas may also be used to improve visualization.
 
Besides visualizing the pelvic cavity, doctors can also treat certain conditions using specialized laparoscopic instruments that fit through the tube, including biopsy, appendectomy and hysterectomy. It can also help surgeons diagnose the staging of a cancerous tumor, evaluate trauma to the abdomen and assess ovarian cysts or fibroids.

  • Less pain after surgery
