Laparoscopic appendectomy: Laparoscopic appendectomy is a minimally invasive operation to remove the appendix from the abdominal cavity. Several small "keyhole" incisions are made in the lower abdomen, through which a tiny video camera (laparoscope) is inserted so the surgeon can see inside without making a large incision. Other instruments are inserted into the other holes as needed to remove the appendix.
