Diagnostic Laparoscopy Alternatives

Major Abdominal Surgery
A surgical alternative to laparoscopic surgery is major abdominal surgery. However, this alternative carries greater risks, requires a much longer period to recover, and causes more pain and discomfort. Therefore, when laparoscopic surgery is possible, diagnosis and treatment can be achieved at a lower risk and less discomfort.
If you have any questions about possible alternatives for your particular situation, you should discuss the different alternative methods for surgery with your doctor and decide which one, if any, is right for you.
