Laparoscopic Surgery And Its Benefits

Date : 22-Jul-2019

Laparoscopic surgery is a surgical procedure where tiny incisions are made to operate the targeted area. The process involves the usage of a tool known as the laparoscope which consists of a tiny video camera with a small light at its end. It is by far the safest and most effective surgical procedure performed by surgeons these days. Unlike traditional open surgery, laparoscopic surgery involves small incisions so it is also known as "minimally invasive" surgery. Most of the abdominal surgeries like gall bladder surgery, bariatric surgery, pancreatic surgery, hernia repair and many more are conducted through laparoscopic procedures.

How is the surgery conducted?

In Laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon makes a few small incisions on the targeted area. Each incision is about a centimeter or less in width. This is why Laparoscopic surgery is also known as keyhole surgery. Now through one of the openings, a tube is inserted which consists of a small camera and light at its end. The camera attached projects a video of the area that needs to be operated and the surgeon looks at the monitor and operates accordingly.

Why is laparoscopic surgery far better than traditional open surgeries?

Laparoscopic surgery has several benefits compared to open surgeries.

  • First of all, it's a minimally invasive surgery, therefore it involves very little pain and discomfort.
  • As small incisions are made, the blood loss during the surgery is negligible.
  • The laparoscope provides accurate results, so there is no risk post surgery.
  • Smaller incisions get healed at a fast rate. Therefore the patient can get back to normal life within a few days.
  • The hospital stay is also less as the patient starts recovering quickly
  • Also, there will be very less internal scarring since it’s a minimally invasive procedure.
