Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgery, which is also known as keyhole surgery. It is a specialized technique that is used to carry out treatments like gall bladder surgery and gynecological surgeries by creating small incisions of about 0.5 to 1 cm. Besides this, the laparoscopic technique has also been extended to carry out intestinal surgeries.
The procedure involves making small cuts on the body, which are not more than half-inch long. Through this incision, a tube is inserted, and a special camera and surgical tools are passed through it. The surgery is then performed by screening the whole operation on a TV screen. The monitoring is done with the help of a camera and instruments that go inside the abdomen. There are situations where a surgeon opts for a special hand port. This technique requires a larger incision than usual laparoscopic surgery and is called "hand assisted laparoscopy".

The gastrointestinal tract includes organs such as mouth, stomach, large and small intestine, liver, gallbladder, anus, etc. Surgeries that involve the gastrointestinal tract are performed with the help of laparoscopic surgery. With the help of laparoscopy surgery, the surgeon can perform surgery with minimal incisions.
Operations performed through laparoscopy surgery, include:
A. Gallbladder surgery
Gallstones are small solid material that forms in the gallbladder. The surgery involves the removal of the gallbladder to prevent it from producing more stones. The gallbladder stone surgery is generally completed laparoscopically with minimal cuts, whereas open surgery is required for a very few cases.
B. Hernia repair surgery
Hernias come in different shapes and sizes and hence require different treatments. Small hernias are laparoscopically cured whereas, large and complex hernias involve a specific form of abdominal wall reconstruction so that a big mesh can assemble, and strengthen the gap.

• Laparoscopic ventral hernia repairs.
