What Does “Laparoscopic” Surgery Mean?

It means more days with your family, and less in the hospital. It means getting back to work, to your hobbies, to your life. It means you and your community get the care you deserve.

Laparoscopy is a type of minimally invasive surgery. This means that the surgeons use smaller incisions to perform the procedure, so the patient will have a shorter hospital stay, smaller scars, less need for pain medication, and a faster recovery.
