Minimally invasive surgery has revolutionized the field of gastrointestinal surgery since the mid 1980’s. With modern laparoscopic techniques, patients can expect to undergo simple to complex gastrointestinal operations without many of the complications associated with open surgery.
Because in laparoscopic surgery incisions are small and the approach is non-invasive, patients experience significantly less pain and fewer complications such as wound infections or incisional hernias. Very often, patients are able to leave the hospital the same day and return to normal activities within a few days of surgery.
