Aim: In this prospective study we aim to discuss and share our experience of what we have learned in laparoscopic surgery in general. Material and Method: Prospective case controlled study. Data obtained from 172 laparoscopic procedures performed in Baskent University Alanya hospital gynecology clinic were collected between April 2012 and March 2014. Results: Difference in abdominal wall elevation measurements with force applied during primary trocar entry ranged from 1cm to 3cm (mean: 2.13 +/- 1cm) when elevated manually and 0.5cm to 3cm (mean: 0.89 +/- 0.8cm) with the towel clips. The difference was statistically significant (p<0.05). Discussion: Laparoscopic surgery or minimally invasive surgery in general will undoubtedly dominate all fields of medicine in the near future, therefore it would be mandatory for almost every surgical branch to provide adequate training and skills for the operator in the both pre and post graduation period.
