Lasers can not stand alone as the sole energy delivery system used for advanced operative laparoscopy. Proper application of other types of energy expand greatly the scope of laparoscopic surgery. The laser is never used solely for the sake of using space age technology. The ultimate outcome of laparoscopic surgery depends primarily on the skill of the surgeon and the extent of disease present. The laser surgeon must select an appropriate combination of instrumentation and proper utilization of ancillary incisions in order to accomplish the operative task.
