Laparoscopic Surgery is a minimally invasive surgery in which the operations in the abdomen are performed far from their locations through small incisions. The surgery is done with the help of video camera and small instruments. An instrument called laparoscope is used for the surgery. Small thin surgical instruments are passed through the incisions to perform the surgery.
Laparoscopic surgery is commonly used in the diagnosis of abdominal and pelvic conditions. Laparoscopic surgery has many advantages than traditional open surgery. Some of the advantages are:
- Shorter hospital stay
- Less pain and bleeding after surgery
- Much smaller scars
- Quicker recovery time
A laparoscope is a long thin fiber optic cable which illuminates and magnifies the structures inside the abdomen. There are two types of laparoscope:
Telescopic rod lens system: This is a device which uses single chip or three chip video camera.
Charge-coupled device: Here the charge-coupled device is placed at the end of laparoscope instead of the telephonic rod lens system.

Some of the signs and symptoms are:
- stomach pain
