Laparoscopy lets us look at the internal organs through one or two small holes in the abdominal wall. We are able to examine the abdominal contents and biopsy liver, kidneys and pancreas easily and safely. This is much more comfortable than a full abdominal surgical procedure and the recovery time is much shorter.
