Abstract Laparoscopic procedures are becoming increasingly preferred by both surgeons and patients owing to decreased pain, reduced perioperative morbidity, and an earlier return to self-reliance. Laparoscopy for solid organ surgery has been slower to evolve when compared with procedures such as laparoscopic cholecystectomy owing to factors involving lower case volume and refinement of technologies specific to operations involving the spleen, adrenal, pancreas, and liver. Future integration of technology will allow surgeons to offer increasingly less morbid therapies aimed at the patient's best clinical outcome.
