Laparoscopic Appendectomy

Laparoscopic Appendectomy Procedure in India

This treatment is carried out for the removal of inflamed appendix. The appendix, which is located on the lower right side of your belly, is a little finger-shaped organ with a narrow tubular body. It contains microbes. Appendicitis occurs when the appendix gets inflamed due to obstruction. An appendix rupture might cause the infection to spread to other organs, endangering the patient's life. The best surgical and diagnostic approach to simultaneously diagnose and treat appendicitis is laparoscopy.

Solutions for Laparoscopic Appendectomy

A few tests will be administered when your gastroenterologist suspects appendicitis in order to make a definitive diagnosis. In order to provide you with the choice of choosing this minimally invasive surgery for safer results, he may propose laparoscopic surgery depending on the degree of the inflammation and your medical history. This has the added benefit of allowing you to both assess the extent of the appendicitis and remove it by cutting it away.

Your surgeon will create a few keyhole-sized incisions in your belly during a laparoscopic appendectomy. Your abdomen will be inflated with carbon dioxide gas through one of the incisions using a tiny, narrow tube known as a cannula. The surgeon can see your appendix well because of this gas. The laparoscope, a narrow tube with a high-intensity light and a high-resolution camera at the end, will be put through the incision once the abdomen has been inflated. The surgeon can see into your abdomen and direct the instruments by looking at the images the camera beams on a monitor. The appendix will be located and removed after being tied off with stitches. After that, the tiny incisions are cleansed, stitched, and dressed.

For obese and older patients, laparoscopic surgery is frequently the best choice. It is less risky than an open appendectomy and recovers faster, resulting in a shorter hospital stay. However, open surgery might be advised if the appendix has ruptured.

Complexities in Laparoscopic Appendectomy

Although there are no particular hazards, the gas in your abdomen could cause some discomfort or soreness at the point of your shoulder.
