During a minimally invasive procedure, a surgeon makes 3-4 small incisions that often measure less than an inch. A small camera (laparoscope) is then placed through one of the incisions. The images from the camera are projected onto monitors in the operating room so surgeons can get a clear and magnified view of the surgical area. Additional incisions are used for specialized surgical tools that help perform the procedure.
