How is laparoscopic surgery used in oncology?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Laparoscopic surgery is used in oncology to perform surgery in a less invasive manner, using small incisions. The oncologist uses a laparoscope, which is a tool that allows him to see the inside of your body via camera. The images the camera produces allow your oncologist to maneuver surgical tools inside your body through very small incisions. These incisions heal more quickly and with fewer dangerous complications than the incisions used in some other types of surgery.
