Advanced laparoscopic surgery, also known as ‘keyhole surgery’, is a minimally invasive surgery that utilises small incisions in the skin which reduces pain, discomfort and recovery time for the patient.
In comparison to conventional approach to surgery which requires a much larger incision to be made, advanced laparoscopic surgery involves a small telescope (or laparoscope) inserted into the small incisions and used to view the abdominal and pelvic organs during surgical operations.

What are the Benefits of Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery
Advanced laparoscopic surgery has many benefits, including being less invasive than traditional surgery, a substantial reduction in pain and discomfort post-operation, and a shorter recovery time so you can get back to your life quicker. There is also a lower chance of internal scarring (adhesions) and smaller post-operative scars.
Additionally, this type of surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis so the patient can often go home the same day or the following day.
For some types of advanced laparoscopic surgery, the use of a large screen and magnification of the area being operated on makes the procedure easier to complete for the surgeon which lowers risk and complications.
