Laparoscopic surgery involves making small incisions for entry, with specially designed surgical instruments equipped with a camera that project onto a television screen in the operating room. This permits the surgeon a full internal view without having to make larger incisions.  Carbon dioxide gas is inserted through a tube in the incision to inflate the surrounding internal area and increase visibility for the physician.

Patients who experience laparoscopic surgery will experience minor discomfort, but have lower risk of infection than those who experience traditional methods of surgery.
