Laparoscopy is an advanced surgical technique often used to diagnose and treat abnormalities or medical complications such as an infection, ectopic pregnancy, cyst, fibroids, endometriosis, or pelvic inflammatory disease. Laparoscopy comes in handy in case of an accident or an injury, where it helps detect any damage to the internal organs. There are instances where laparoscopy is even used in a biopsy (to collect the tissue sample).
The technique involves a small incision, often in the belly, through which a lighted tube(laparoscope) is inserted into the abdomen to analyze or treat the problem. The technique is relatively hassle-free, causing minimum discomfort to the patient. There are so many associated benefits that more and more people are choosing laparoscopy over other surgical procedures and open surgery.

Laparoscopy surgery is often advised to treat gastrointestinal problems such as Diverticulitis, Crohn's disease, Colorectal Cancer, and Familial polyposis. Laparoscopy surgery may also be helpful in the case of severe constipation, bowel incontinence (a condition where a person fails to control bowel movements), or rectal prolapse.
As with most laparoscopic surgeries, the surgeon makes a few incisions in the abdomen. With the stomach inflated with carbon dioxide gas (to view the diseased organs better), a laparoscope and surgical instruments are placed via incisions to perform the surgery.
The different laparoscopic surgeries to treat gastrointestinal disorders include:

Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure commonly used to treat gastrointestinal diseases. Unlike traditional surgery on the colon or other parts of the intestines, where a long incision down the center of the abdomen is required, laparoscopic surgery requires only tiny "keyhole" incisions in the stomach. As a result, the person undergoing the procedure may experience less pain and scarring after surgery and a more rapid recovery.
