Caption: Laparoscope surgery. A team of surgeons carry out "keyhole" surgery on a patient while observing the process on a monitor. In keyhole surgery a fibre- optic viewing tube or laparoscope (lower centre) is inserted through the patient's abdominal wall to give a view of internal organs on a monitor. Other instruments may also be inserted through the laparoscope. This surgeon is using hand-operated forceps to manipulate or remove a piece of tissue. Common operations carried out by keyhole surgery include gall bladder removal and female sterilization. The technique is described as minimally invasive, because it avoids resorting to major surgical incisions.
