This is a particular area of interest to me. Known as keyhole surgery it allows many operations to be undertaken using small incisions and an operating system linked to a large TV monitor. Recovery times are reduced enormously and the surgery has many advantages over the traditional open approach.
I have a day only list at the Wollongong Day Surgery once a fortnight where I do diagnostic laparoscopies often with a hysteroscope to look inside the uterus. I have a theatre list at Wollongong Private Hospital once a month where I can see to some of these larger cases with significant disease needing advanced laparoscopic surgery.
