There are a number of advantages to the patient with laparoscopic surgery versus an open procedure. These include: Reduced hemorrhaging, which reduces the chance of needing a blood transfusion. Smaller incision, which reduces pain and shortens recovery time, as well as resulting in less post-operative scarring. Requirement for less pain medication.

Although procedure times are usually slightly longer, hospital stay is less, and mostly with a same day discharge which leads to a faster return to everyday living.
