Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery (ALS) is a minimally invasive surgery that serves as an advanced surgical technique performed through small incisions using cameras and long, skinny instruments.
What is advanced laparoscopic surgery?
During ALS, our team of surgeons uses multiple small incisions (each usually 5-10 mm). The abdominal cavity is filled with gas (carbon dioxide) to provide the surgeon with visibility. A video camera is introduced through one of the small incisions and the surgery is completed using long, skinny instruments to perform the operation while looking through video monitors. At the end of the operation, the tiny incisions are closed with dissolvable stitches.
