Also known as keyhole surgery. Minimally invasive surgical techniques are used for many types of surgery including:

  • Hernia repair
  • Thyroid surgery
  • Colon
  • Appendix
  • Stomach
  • Adrenal
  • Lymph node biopsy

Using specialized techniques: miniature video cameras, fibre-optic technology and high-definition video monitors, the surgeon is able to perform an operation through small incisions which usually require only a stitch or two to close.

The benefits of a laparoscopic hernia repair include:

  • Tiny incisions and better cosmetic effect
  • Reduced post-operative pain
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Earlier return to work
