What Is a Laparoscopic Surgery?
Laparoscopic or “minimally invasive” surgery is a specialized technique to perform surgery. Previously, this technique was usually used for gynecological and gallbladder surgery. During the last 10 years, the use of this technique has expanded and includes intestinal surgery. In the traditional “open” surgery, the surgeon uses a single incision to enter the abdomen. Laparoscopic surgery uses several 0.5 to 1 cm incisions.
What Are the Advantages of Laparoscopy?
- Less pain than traditional surgery.
- The recovery period is short.
- The incisions are smaller and less invasive than those of a traditional open surgery.
- Better cosmetic outcome.
What Can Be Operated with Laparoscopy?
They are mostly intestinal surgeries.
- Ulcerative colitis
- Severe constipation
Amongst other gastrointestinal problems that require surgical intervention.
How Safe Is a Laparoscopic Surgery?
Laparoscopic surgery is as safe as traditional surgery; the surgeon first examines the abdomen in order to determine if it is safe to perform a laparoscopy. The risk of any surgery is determined in part by the nature of the specific surgery. The general health of the person and other medical problems are also factors that affect the risk of any surgery.
