Carolina Surgical Associates' surgeons are well trained in the safe and effective use of the laparoscopic technique. This minimally invasive surgery is performed through multiple small incisions using specially designed surgical instruments and viewed through a laparoscopic or surgical telescope.
There are many advantages of laparoscopic surgery, including reduced trauma to muscular tissues, less scarring and less postoperative pain. Overall recovery time is faster and patients are able to return to normal activities sooner, compared to traditional (open) surgery. The majority of general surgery procedures now can be done laparoscopically.
