Issue: 
Pages: 
467–71
Synopsis: 
This article serves to trace the history of laparoscopic surgery in the West Indies and to uncover the advances in this field in the Caribbean.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The first world witnessed a laparoscopic revolution in the 1990s. At the start, laparoscopic surgery was heavily criticized and ridiculed. Despite this, the specialty has blossomed where almost any procedure can be done laparoscopically with the now obvious tremendous benefit to the patients. The objective of this paper is to examine where the Caribbean is placed relative to the rest of the world in terms of laparoscopic surgery and to understand why we are here.
