Advantages of the procedure

Laparoscopic surgery offers greater benefits for the patient than conventional surgery, among these, the faster recovery and the lower postoperative pain of the patient stand out. Thanks to these advantages, this minimally invasive approach has become the technique of choice in numerous surgical procedures.

The learning of laparoscopic techniques should be initiated in animal models that allow health professionals to acquire the skills required to subsequently apply these techniques in the clinic human. The need to carry out this course is determined by the great interest that arises among the surgeons for learning minimally invasive techniques.
