Appendicectomy

Laparoscopic appendicectomy involves several small incisions (cuts) being made in the lower right abdomen (stomach) and a narrow tube with a tiny camera attached (laparoscope) is inserted. This allows the surgeon a view of the appendix and, by inserting small surgical instruments through the other cuts, the appendix can be removed.
