Laparoscopy In Toronto Mt. Sinai Hospital

Today I am going to Mt Sinai Hospital located in Downtown Toronto to undergo a Laparoscopy procedure. I am a bit scared but keep holding on to my faith that everything will be just all right. To give you some informations about the the procedure, I made a short research on the internet.

Laparoscopy is a surgery that uses a thin, lighted tube put through a cut (incision) in the belly to look at the abdominal organs or the female pelvic organs . Laparoscopy is used to find problems such as cysts, adhesions, fibroids , and infection. Tissue samples can be taken for biopsy through the tube (laparoscope).

In many cases laparoscopy can be done instead of laparotomy surgery that uses a larger incision in the belly. Laparoscopy can be less stressful and may have less problems and lower costs than laparotomy for minor surgeries. It can often be done without needing to stay overnight in the hospital.

I will share more informations and my experiences about Laparoscopy on my future post. God Bless...
