Core Tip The introduction of laparoscopic surgery for gastric cancer did not seem to result in increased costs as compared to open gastrectomy for gastric cancer. Despite higher operating room costs (longer operating time and more costly operating room materials) costs were similar between the open and laparoscopic group due to reduced length of stay and complication rate in laparoscopic gastrectomy patients.
