A field of minimal access surgery (MAS) has seen continuous and significant advances in the last two decades since the first laparoscopic cholecystectomy was reported in the year 1987. The benefits of industrial innovation were most realized in this field through continuous introduction of superior instruments, advanced optics, shorter port sizes, unique designs and newer energy sources. In fact, the industry has raised the minimal access surgery to such a level of excellence that patients world over now seek this mode of surgery for advantages of lesser pain, better cosmetic outcome and faster recovery. The optics in the instruments has changed from analogue signals to the present day high-definition signals, while 3D video technology is at an advanced stage of development. Introduction of robotic surgery has further made it possible for highly intrinsic maneuvers to be performed inside the abdomen. With such rapid advances in this field and growing interest among surgeons.
