Minimal Invasive Surgery

Minimal Invasive Surgery is a modern way of endoscopic surgery of the abdomen using a few small incisions allowing instruments to be entered in the abdominal cavity including a small camera by which surgical procedures can be recorded.

Some years ago most surgical procedures in the abdomen were carried out by more invasive methods i.e. by making a large incision to enter the abdomen in order to get access to the internal organs. Such invasive methods offer a higher risk of infections..

iLappSurgery Foundation

The iLappSurgery Foundation was started out of passion for surgery and therefore it’s a non-profit organization.

The goal of the Foundation is to develop educational material concerning specific advanced techniques in the field of Minimal Invasive Surgery and to make such material available to surgeons, residents and other interested parties worldwide in the form of App-modules. As a result we aim to increase the level of minimal invasive surgical skills in order to lengthen the life expectancy of patients, to improve their quality of life and to shorten the duration of hospital stay.

Quick access

The use of App and digital modules in the field of surgical teaching is still in an initial stage, but minimal invasive surgery is ideal for such an approach as it uses a small camera inserted in the abdominal cavity resulting in a digital recording of the procedures.

The editing of the iLappSurgery video-parts is handled by a team of specialists consisiting of a 3D-graphist, a medical illustrator, a video editor and a colorizing-editor and other specialists.

All procedures are commented by world renowned experts
