Laparoscopic Surgery In Vadodara

A Comprehensive Guide To Laparoscopic Surgery: What You Need To Know

Laparoscopy surgery uses smaller cuts and is thus known as the minimally invasive surgery. With the help of this process, various abdominal surgeries are easily performed. Patients mostly prefer minimally invasive treatments these days and laparoscopy is the ideal solution.

The Process & Techniques

This process takes its name from the laparoscope which is nothing but a slender tool with a tiny video camera and light on the end. Surgeons insert this tool through a small cut into the body of the patient. They can look at a video monitor and can clearly see what’s happening inside the patient. Because of this small tool, doctors no longer need to make larger cuts.

In advanced laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon may use the device with a hand. This process is called hand-assisted surgery and this particular method is helpful for liver and other organ operations. Although the cut is a bit larger than the usual laparoscopic surgery, it is still smaller than a traditional surgery cut.

The best part of advanced laparoscopy treatment is the use of robotic techniques. In this robotic version of the surgery, the robot takes hold of the surgery instrument and performs the treatment while the doctors watch the entire process on the video.

The use of robotic laparoscopy is mostly recommended during gynecological surgeries and for people with overweight.

Benefits of Laparoscopy Treatments

Minimum bleeding and almost no pain: Bleeding during laparoscopic surgeries is minimal which reduces the need for blood transfusion. Even the pain is negligible and very low. This is the reason why many patients prefer laparoscopy. This process involves very small incisions compared to those made in open surgeries.

No pain and post-surgical bleeding: Post-surgery many patients used to face bleeding and pain with the traditional surgery. However, with laparoscopy, there are reduced risks of pain and bleeding. Since in laparoscopy, the wound is small, healing is fast. So patients’ recovery time is quicker.

Very small scar: With a smaller incision laparoscopy creates a very small scar. Post-surgery many patients find their scars fading within months. The best part is with small incisions, there is a minimum risk of infection after surgery. Minimally invasive treatments always reduce the exposure of internal organs to external contaminants. However, with a large surgical wound, the scar tissue carries a higher risk of infection.

Recovery From Laparoscopic Surgery

Although recovery is fast in laparoscopy treatment, it still depends on three major factors such as:

  • The medical condition of the patient.
  • Age of the patient.
  • Occurrence of any complications during the surgery

For some, recovery might be 1 to 2 weeks. But others may take longer. That’s why it is advisable to listen to the surgeon who will tell you the estimate of the recovery time.

At Narayan Smruti Multispeciality Hospital we have advanced treatment facilities. We perform laparoscopy treatment depending on the patient’s condition. Not all procedures can be performed laparoscopically. This is why one must always talk to a specialist surgeon to understand all the factors before planning for a surgical approach.
