General & Laparoscopic Surgery
Laparoscopic surgery, also called diagnostic laparoscopic surgery, is a method to examine the organs inside the abdomen.
It is a minimally invasive surgery and a low-risk surgery that only requires small incisions to perform the surgery. Through these small incisions, a surgeon can examine and look at the organs by using a device called a laparoscope.
The first thing that comes in our mind after hearing the word surgery is pain, blood and wounds. But, don’t worry, not all the surgeries are painful and involves blood loss. Thanks to the advancement in the medical science that laparoscopy surgeries came in.
During a laparoscopy surgery, a surgeon makes a small incision near the belly button. Through this incision, he inserts a laparoscope, with the help of which high-resolution images can be seen on the video monitor. The incisions made cause no pain and very less blood loss. The images that are formed helps a surgeon to know about the exact underlying problem.
Laparoscopy has many benefits over open surgery in cases like splenectomy, cholecystectomy and esophageal surgery. It is a completely safe and quick surgery in which deep tissue heals within two months. The patient gets discharged on the same day sometimes and even the scars heal quickly.
