In this less invasive surgery, laparoscope is inserted, which is a small tube with the tiny video camera at the end, through the 10-millimeter incision made in middle of the abdomen. Then the surgeon inserts the surgical instruments from the additionally made incisions in order to perform operation. In this entire process, the laparoscopic camera projects the magnified and high-resolution image of the surgical area onto the multiple monitors, and allows the surgeon to perform the surgery safely with high precision. And people who have the laparoscopic weight loss surgery experience less pain, which can be resolved with over-the-counter medicines.
