Procedure - Laparoscopic Surgery

In recent years, laparoscopic surgery has become a popular option for patients at Ogden Clinic in Utah. As opposed to open surgery, laparoscopic surgery is less invasive and many surgeries can be performed as outpatient procedures versus requiring long hospital stays. Laparoscopic surgery is also commonly referred to as keyhole surgery or minimally invasive surgery.

Laparoscopic surgery is performed with a surgical tool called a laparoscope. A laparoscope is a thin tool affixed with a light and camera which allows the surgeon to view the interior of the abdomen on screens inside the operating room.

How It Works

For a laparoscopic surgery at Ogden Clinic in Utah, you will be asleep under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will make a small cut near your belly button and inject some gas to slightly inflate the wall of the abdomen to make your organs more visible. The laparoscope is then inserted through this incision and additional incisions are made if necessary to use other surgical tools. Once your procedure is complete, the small incisions are stitched and dressings are applied. Laparoscopic surgery is the preferred choice of many patients because of its extensive benefits including:

  • Reduced blood loss during the procedure
  • Smaller surgical scars
  • Reduced pain following the surgery
  • Shorter stay in the hospital
  • Quicker return to normal activities
  • Less risk of infection

Surgery can be intimidating for many people. With laparoscopic surgery at Ogden Clinic in Utah, we hope to alleviate some of that stress by offering minimally invasive procedures which allow people to recover faster, have less scarring, and reduce their risk of complications.
