Surgeries initially involved bigger incisions, and the recovery time was higher just because of the huge incisions. Laparoscopic surgery brought down the recovery time and reduced the pain. The surgery used smaller cuts and was initially used for gynecology procedure and gallbladder surgeries. In this surgery, many small incisions are made, and each is called a port. A trochar is inserted into each port, and small cameras called laparoscope is also inserted. Carbon dioxide is filled to let the surgeons get working space and view to perform the surgery.
