Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic Surgery

Luciano Fiszer, MD, is a board-certified general surgeon based in Miami and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

Surgery is a type of treatment that has positive results. If a surgical procedure becomes a necessary part of your treatment plan, it’s likely your doctor will use a laparoscopic surgery. The procedure is typically less invasive than other traditional surgery methods. That less invasiveness is why many doctors choose a laparoscopic procedure for their patients. It cuts down on the risk of infection and has a minimal recovery time.

What Is A Laparoscopic Procedure?

Laparoscopic procedures allow doctors to repair damaged internal body parts. A camera at the end of the scope goes into your body through a small cut into your belly button. A video of your inner body allows a live view for doctors to see as they operate on your organs.

Advantages of Laparoscopic Surgeries

Also known as minimally invasive surgery, laparoscopic surgery can reduce the risks commonly associated with traditional surgeries. Utilizing a larger incision increases the chances of complications afterward. Your recovery time in the hospital will decrease. Most patients experience less discomfort and pain. Your doctor may suggest laparoscopic surgeries because of the likelihood of a good outcome, especially for fragile groups like the older population. Dissecting through organs like the stomach is tough for doctors to maneuver with traditional surgery measures. However, laparoscopic procedures make the process less complicated by using higher accuracy and smaller incisions. Before the discovery of the laparoscopic procedure, doctors would cut a large vertical line into your abdominal area to perform the same minimal invasive surgery available today.
Is a Laparoscopy the Same as a Laparoscopic Surgery?

Though similar and used for the same meaning at times, a laparoscopy is not the same as a laparoscopic surgery. When your doctor schedules a laparoscopy, it is to detect; not treat.  They can give you a clearer diagnosis and later treat conditions better because of the in-depth view the surgery provides. If you complain to your doctor about having pain in your pelvis or stomach area, they might order a laparoscopy to find out why your pain exists.  Just as with laparoscopic surgery, a surgeon would insert a laparoscope with a tiny camera on the end through your belly button. The video is shown to your doctor in real time so they can quickly identify any problem areas. Then, if there is an issue, your doctor can fix it with a laparoscopic procedure in the future.
Types of Health Complications Treated With a Laparoscopic Procedure


Thirty years ago, you had one option for gallbladder surgery. You would dedicate nearly a month to recovery. Today, your doctor can use a laparoscopic surgery, and that recovery time drops to a few days. Most patients return home and can resume their routine.  A gallbladder surgery is very common in the United States. Newer technology allows the removal of painful gallstones quicker and safer. Laparoscopic surgeries prevent scarring and infection.

A doctor fixes a hiatal hernia after damage from consistent GERD, or gastrointestinal acid reflux disease. When medications meant to prevent and block acid from rising to the throat are unsuccessful, your doctor may suggest a hiatal hernia surgery.

It would not be uncommon to have your doctor send you home the same day as you received your spleen surgery. Unless there is an underlying issue, the most common reason a doctor would request a splenectomy is for a spleen rupture.
Weight Loss Aid

Gastric sleeve or gastrectomy surgery takes a large piece of the patient’s stomach to stop overeating habits causing obesity. The surgery hopes to extend a patient’s quality of life. A gastrectomy cannot be reversed once the procedure is complete.
Ectopic Pregnancy

Pregnancies created outside of the womb are dangerous to the mother and fetus. Your doctor would terminate an ectopic pregnancy because of the serious risk of death it poses. The attached fetus and damaged fallopian tubes are taken out during a laparoscopy.

Faster advancements in technology benefit the medical community. Laparoscopic surgery is proof of the benefits of treatment. Your doctor can help speed up the time you stay in the hospital, lower your infection risks, and reduce blood loss. That’s why laparoscopic surgeries are great options if your doctor should need to operate.

    "I had the gastric sleeve with Dr. Fiszer a few weeks ago and it was the best experience I could have hoped for. He was caring and attentive to all my questions, offered information when there were things I didn't ask that I would need to know and the procedure itself was so so much better to recover from than I could have hoped for. I would (and will) highly recommend him to anyone and everyone that is looking for a surgeon. He also did an endoscopy on me a few months earlier and I had an equally good experience for that procedure. A+++ in my book!"

    - Alejandra Martin, Patient

    "Dr Fiszer and his staff are wonderful. He is a very knowledgeable, kind, caring, and concerned physician. He answered all of my questions and even answered questions I did not know I had. I was very hesitant about having any type of bariatric surgery. Dr. Fiszer helped me choose which procedure was best for me and when I decide on the gastric sleeve I felt well informed and comfortable with my decision. I would highly recommend him to anyone without reservation."

    - Kristin Volz, Patient

    "Dr. Fiszer is an amazing doctor. His bedside manner is impeccable and his desire to make you feel safe is one of the main reason I will always seek him out for any future surgery. His medical expertise is next to none. Dr. Fiszer performed emergency surgery on my husband for an abscess last weekend and his treatment, compassion, love for his work and respect for his patients is the highest I’ve ever seen. I loved his treatment, courtesy and overall desire to help. God bless you Doc! You ROCK!!!"
