Miracle Of Laparoscopic Surgery And It’s Benefits

In the past few years, Laparoscopy surgery procedures have developed to a great extent. The laparoscopy surgery has become most popular considering the large number of benefits it offers and the faster time to recovery. Let’s go through what exactly this procedure involves.

Laparoscopy, also called as keyhole surgery is a minimally invasive procedure, where a surgery is performed with a small incision of less than 3mm. The procedure uses an instrument called the laparoscope. A camera attached to the tube allows the surgeon to view the internal body organs on an electronic screen.

Laparoscopy surgery is also known as keyhole surgery or minimally invasive surgery. This kind of surgery is being used to operate organs such as intestines, liver, abdomen and other organs.

Benefits of laparoscopic surgeries

  • Laparoscopic surgery takes a very short time to recover and heal.
  • A shorter period of hospital stay, most of the time it takes one or two days.
  • Compared to traditional or open surgery, incision and scars are small in laparoscopic surgery.
  • The risk of infection is lower in laparoscopic surgery.
  • Lesser pain at the incision site after surgery.
  • Lesser restrictions concerning daily activities compared to open surgery.

The following surgeries performed by using a laparoscopic procedure:

Hernia Surgery: A hernia occurs when an internal organ pushes against a muscle or tissue wall. Hernias occur within the abdomen or between the pelvis and chest. The common types of hernias are:

  • Inguinal Hernia:
  • Hiatal (hiatus) Hernia:
  • Umbilical Hernia:
  • Femoral Hernia:

Appendectomy: Appendectomy is the surgical process of removing the appendix. It is a small and tube-shaped sack attached to the large intestine and located in the lower right side of the abdomen. The function of the appendix is not clear, although it is thought to help us to recover from small and large intestinal infections. Generally, an appendectomy is performed as an emergency surgery to address appendicitis, which is inflammation of the appendix.

Gallbladder removal: The gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ located below the liver on the right side of the abdomen. A cholecystectomy is performed to surgically remove the bladder using a laparoscopic approach.

Colon Surgery: Laparoscopic surgeries are commonly used to treat piles, fistulas, and other colorectal conditions.

Bariatric Surgery: Bariatric surgery is performed when diet and exercise do not produce the expected results and the patient is facing serious health problems due to excess weight. Some procedures control and limit the amount of food a patient can eat but reduce the body's ability to absorb certain nutrients.
