Laparoscopic Obesity Surgery

In the laparoscopic procedure, surgeons make small incisions (5 mm - 10 mm) to reach the abdominal cavity via trocar (small surgical instruments like tubing). The laparoscope, which is connected to a small video camera, is inserted into a small trocar. The resulting image is projected onto a TV screen, giving the surgeon an enlarged view of the stomach and other internal organs. 5 to 6 small incisions are made and trocars are placed to use special surgical instruments to perform the surgery. All surgery is performed in the abdomen after the intra-abdominal cavity is inflated with carbon dioxide gas. When the operation is over, the gas is taken out.
