Laparoscopic surgery is a more innovative option and is referred to as minimally invasive surgery or MIS. In this method of weight loss surgery, small incisions are made and limited access techniques are used. The small incisions are used to insert surgical instruments and a telescope (laparoscope), which is connected to a small video camera. This telescopic system maintains an enhanced visual field and allows the operation to be viewed on a separate video monitor while the surgery is performed. The abdomen is also inflated using carbon dioxide to allow for a better internal view.
Because laparoscopic surgery is less invasive and creates smaller incisions in the body, health risks are lowered. Benefits of this approach include faster healing times, less scarring, less blood loss during surgery, reduced postoperative pain and fewer wound complications, including infection and hernias.
Along with offering health benefits, laparoscopic surgery requires a high level of skill to be performed properly and safely. This procedure is technically advanced and complex requiring surgeons to obtain extensive specialty training. Not all bariatric surgeons are qualified to perform this advanced surgery. When performed by an experienced specialist, laparoscopic surgery is a safe bariatric treatment option and offers definite advantages for patients.
