- INSPIRING BETTER HEALTH
Keyhole surgery, or minimally invasive surgery, is a surgical method used to access the interior of the body through a small incision, by-passing the need for open surgery. Keyhole surgery is most commonly used to access the abdomen and the female pelvic organs in a procedure known as a laparoscopy. Keyhole surgery on a joint, such as the knee, is called an arthroscopy.
During keyhole surgery, a thin rod fitted with a telescopic lens, light source and a camera is passed through a small incision in the skin, giving doctors a magnified view of the inside of the body. The rod is called an endoscope. Surgical instruments can also be passed through the incision, allowing surgeons to operate.
Keyhole surgery may be used to diagnose certain medical conditions, as well as perform a variety of surgical procedures, such as the removal of damaged or diseased organs, or parts of organs. Keyhole surgery is a commonly performed procedure with a number of advantages over traditional open surgery. These include reduced recovery times after the surgery and reduced levels of pain, scarring and bleeding.
