The abdominal cavity of the human body contains both hollow and solid organs, all of which have important roles in digestion and other functions. Solid organs include the liver, spleen, kidneys, adrenal glands and pancreas.
There are many different kinds of surgeries that can be performed on the solid organs, including resection (removal). With few exceptions, most surgeries may be performed laparoscopically or robotically, which is generally better tolerated than open surgery.
