LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY TREATMENT
What is laparoscopic surgery?
Laparoscopic surgery, also referred to as minimally invasive surgery or minimal access surgery describes the performance of surgical procedures with the assistance of a laparoscope, video camera, and several thin long cylindrical instruments. During the surgical procedure, CO2 gas is introduced into the abdominal cavity and small incisions of up to 5 to 10 mm are made. The laparoscopic instruments are placed through these small incisions in the abdomen to perform surgery.
The camera transmits an image of the organs inside the abdomen onto a medical grade monitor. The surgeon is not able to see directly into the patient without the traditional large incision. The telescope becomes a surgeon’s eye in laparoscopy surgery since the surgeon uses the image from the video camera positioned inside the patient’s body to perform the procedure.
Laparoscopic surgery is now accepted all over the world as an important skill and it is no more luxury it is considered as a necessity.
All the good hospital of the world is now equipped with laparoscopic surgery, but it is important that the surgeon who is doing laparoscopy should be qualified.
Benefits Of Laparoscopic Procedures Are
- Less post-operative discomfort since the incisions are much smaller
- Quicker recovery times
- Shorter hospital stays
- Earlier return to full activities
- Much smaller scars
- There may be less internal scarring when the procedures are performed in a minimally invasive fashion compared to standard open surgery.
Why Perform Laparoscopy?
Open traditional surgery requires making a large incision, which leaves a large ugly looking scar. Laparoscopic surgery has changed that because surgeons now operate using small incisions. Even advanced surgery can be performed by this technique nowadays.
Here are a few common examples of laparoscopy
- Gallbladder removal
- Hernia repair
- Appendix removal
- Tubal ligation (having your “tubes tied”)
- Uterus removal
- Kidney donation or removal
- Spleen removal
- Repair of hiatus and GERD
- Removal of Ovarian Cyst etc…
Many advanced specialized hospitals perform more complex surgeries. New tools are being invented recently and so that more operations can be done. This is an exciting area in the world of surgery and slowly becoming a Necessity not luxury.
Sometimes laparoscopic surgery is used just to look inside the body known as Diagnostic Laparoscopy. You may be having some pain or you might be suffering from infertility and your doctor may not be sure what’s wrong. By looking inside your body, the answer may be found and your surgeon can correct the problem. This is usually done after you’ve had some x-rays, Ultrasound and other noninvasive tests.
