Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgery

Until quite recently, most traditional urologic surgical procedures required large incisions with lengthy hospitalization and recovery. Now, many urological surgeries can be performed safely and effectively with minimally invasive techniques or laparoscopic surgery. Using a small telescope with built-in magnification, long, thin surgical instruments are placed through 3-5 incisions (each of which is usually no larger than a dime in size) and the surgery is performed in a manner that is similar to how it would be performed through an open incision.

Minimally invasive procedures offer the same diagnostic and therapeutic benefits of traditional open surgery - but also reduced postoperative pain, shorter hospitalization, faster recovery, and better cosmetic results.
