What is the laparoscopic technique in surgery?
Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic surgery is a surgical technique in which small, short, and thin tubes are inserted into the patient’s abdomen, making small incisions.
Usually, Minimally invasive surgery or surgery with minimum invasion, comes with less pain, a shorter hospital stay, and fewer complications
What is Minimally invasive Laparoscopic or robotic gynecologic surgery?
The minimally invasive surgical technique consists of performing the procedure through small holes instead of large traditional abdominal incisions. In gynecologic surgeries, 3-4 incisions of 5-10 mm are usually needed in different zones of the pelvis.

Afterward, gas is introduced into the abdominal cavity to distend it and allow for the procedure to be performed.
Through one of the holes, usually the one in the belly button, a camera is introduced and its image is seen by the surgeons on an external screen.
Through the remaining 5 mm incisions, delicate instruments that help carry out each of the surgical procedures are inserted.
What advantages does minimally invasive laparoscopic-robotic surgery have?
- Faster postsurgical recovery: In the absence of complications, patients can normally return to their usual daily life between 7-10 days after the surgical procedure.
- Shorter hospital stay: Patients are usually discharged on the same day of the intervention or the next day at the latest. In exceptional cases, the discharge must be delayed further than 48 hours.
- Lower level of postsurgical pain: Patients are discharged with common analgesics (Paracetamol, Enantyum, Ibuprofen) taken orally. This is enough to return to their daily life with a tolerable pain level.
- Lesser aesthetical impact: This is due to smaller abdominal incisions that go unnoticed because of their size.
- Smaller risk of infection and other complications: This is due to less surgical trauma given the more delicate surgical tools. Thus, apart from increasing surgical precision, the possibility of complications is reduced, including postoperative infections.
