Laparoscopic Urology Surgery
Laparoscopic surgery and hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery (HALS) are “minimally invasive” procedures commonly used to treat diseases of the urological procedure. Unlike traditional surgery on the colon or other parts of the intestines where a long incision down the center of the abdomen is required, laparoscopic surgery requires only small “keyhole” incisions in the abdomen. In the case of hand-assisted surgery, a 3-4 inch incision is also used to allow the surgeons hand access to the abdominal organs. As a result, the person undergoing the procedure may experience less pain and scarring after surgery, and a more rapid recovery.
Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure that employs fiber-optic instruments to inspect and operate on the organs inside the abdomen or the pelvic cavities. Through the use of fiber-optic technology, small incisions are made during the procedure and therefore it is a minimally invasive operation.
During a laparoscopy, an instrument called a laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen through a very small incision in the abdominal wall. A laparoscope is a long, thin tube with a high-intensity light and a fibre-optic camera on the end which transmit images to an external video monitor.
