Abstract

Laparoscopic surgery, when performed by a well-trained surgeon, is a remarkably effective procedure that minimizes complications associated with large incisions, operative blood loss and post-operative pain. It also reduces the recovery time. However, the procedure is more challenging than a conventional surgery due to the restricted vision, hand-eye coordination problems, limited working space, and lack of tactile sensation. These issues make the laparoscopic surgery a more difficult technique for medical students and residents to master.
