Ethical Problems Posed by Laparoscopic Surgery
Ethics may be defined as a process for identifying, by consensus, the right course of action in a setting of uncertainty or ambivalence. When the right action is immediately obvious to almost anyone within a common value system, nothing is moot. Values guide us, and there is no need for ethical dialogue. The course of action indicated by a thoroughly ethical process may subsequently prove wrong. Error is not unethical. It is unethical to avoid dialogue when prevailing values fail to guide us.
