Laparoscopy means: Laparoscopy is a type of surgery that makes small incisions in the abdominal wall. This allows a laparoscope or other instruments to be placed and allow structures to be seen in the pelvis and abdomen. These small skin incisions can be used to push various probes and other instruments through. This allows for many surgical procedures to be done without the need of a larger incision.
