Laparoscopy is the technique of the
millennium for doing most of the abdominal and thoracic
operations. It is the most significant advancement of Surgery,
which took place in the 20th century. Diagnosis and correction
of gynaecologic disorders once required major surgeries and
many days of hospitalisation.
Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy,
now allow the diagnosis and correction of many of these
disorders on an outpatient basis. Reduced postoperative pain,
Reduced patient discomfort, Early mobilization, Reduced
hospital stay, are all just few of the advantages of this
advanced technology. Patient recovery time is only two to
three days, which is significantly less than the recovery time
from major abdominal surgeries. The Laparoscopic surgeries are
preferred because of their cosmetic advantages as well.
