Laparoscopy Topic Guide
Laparoscopy: Laparoscopy is a less invasive form of surgery where surgeons make tiny incisions and insert tiny instruments and a camera into the incision to view internal organs and repair or remove tissue. Patients who undergo laparoscopic surgery may have quicker recovery times and experience less trauma to the body.
Adhesions (General and After Surgery) Adhesions are bands of scar tissue that form over organs. Adhesions can occur in the abdomen, pelvic region, or around the heart. Adhesions generally do not cause symptoms; however, they may cause abdominal or pelvic pain, and shortness of breath. The only way to treat adhesions is surgery to free them.
