Laparoscopic splenectomy can be taught and performed safely. It presents less significant morbidity than does open surgery, and efficacy in the control of hematologic disease is comparable while offering the proven benefits of the minimally invasive approach. Laparoscopic splenectomy for selected hematologic disorders should replace open splenectomy as the technique of choice and prompt earlier consideration of surgery when it is indicated.
