Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Spleen removal surgery. Image 4 of 9. Surgeon preparing a plastic portal during keyhole surgery to remove a patient's enlarged spleen. Here, the portal is being inserted into the hole through which the spleen will be removed. The keyhole surgery (also called minimally invasive surgery) allows the spleen to be removed through a relatively small hole in the abdomen. This is less traumatic than opening the body up. The spleen acts as a filter for the blood. An enlarged spleen, which can be caused by infection or other disorders, is usually surgically removed.
