What are the benefits of laparoscopy?

Since the surgery is performed through small holes in the abdominal wall, our patients are discharged the next day. Their return to work and home life is faster. Postoperative mobility is higher. The lenses used during laparoscopy provide magnification. In diseases such as endometriosis where the ovaries need to be protected, the magnification power of the lenses increases the quality of the surgery.
