(CBSNEWS) — Next time you need laparoscopic surgery, you may want to consider a doctor with a penchant for playing Wii Sports, according to new research.
A laparoscopy is a common medical procedure — also known as keyhole surgery — in which a surgeon makes a small cut below the belly button and inserts a tiny camera tube that allows doctors to see the insides of the abdomen and other organs. They can then remove anything that is causing a problem.
The procedure can be performed to find a growth or an unknown cause of pain, check if cancer has spread, or to confirm unclear x-ray results.
