Keyhole Surgery is carried out to avoid the need for a large incision and is conducted using a laparoscope which is a tiny camera that is inserted into the body, usually through the stomach. The camera is used to guide the surgical instruments around the body.
When conducted successfully it can have many benefits over open surgery however if a surgeon fails to carry out the procedure with the necessary skill and care causing injury, serious complications such as puncture or perforation of internal organs can occur. As with any surgery, there are risks associated with the procedure; however, if a surgeon has failed to follow protocols intended to reduce the risk of accidental damage, and injury has been sustained, this may amount to a compensation claim.
