Often, laparoscopic surgery can be used for children. Laparoscopic surgery is any surgical procedure using a fiber optic device that lets the surgeon operate without the use of a large open incision. Instead, the surgeon makes several small cuts through which the instruments are passed. This type of minimally invasive pediatric surgery results in less bleeding, minimal scarring, and faster recovery. Minimally invasive procedures include appendectomy, pyloromyotomy, hernia repair, ovarian surgery, repair of pectus excavatum, and others as appropriate.
