What is a Laparoscopic Surgery? How is it done?

Refinement in modern medical science brought a tremendous change in the numerous treatment methods. One of the major advancements can be seen in the field of surgeries. 

A few years back, we often see a patient with a number of stitches after undergoing surgery. This is because doctors had to cut a large part of the skin. But nowadays, the procedure has been changed completely with the help of Laparoscopic surgery. 

Yes, this technique makes the doctors able to complete the patient’s surgery without giving much pain or stitches. 

In this article, we’ll read about Laparoscopic surgery, its procedure, and its benefits.

What is Laparoscopic surgery?

Laparoscopic surgery is a procedure performed to prevent major surgery and prolonged post-surgery healing time. Laparoscopic surgeries usually involve a thin tube called a laparoscope. It is inserted into the abdomen area through a small incision.

How Laparoscopic surgery is done?

The procedure of Laparoscopic surgery is as follows:

  1. Anesthesia is given to the patient, which makes the patient feel no pain throughout the procedure.
  2. Small incisions are made in the patient’s abdomen, around the belly button area.
  3. The doctor inserts a tube at the incision site and the CO2 gas is inflated in the abdomen. This provides the doctor a better view and more space to work. 
  4. Afterward, the laparoscope is inserted through the tube and internal images can be seen on the monitor.
  5. Surgical instruments can then be inserted via further small incisions that can be made, depending on what the surgeon finds and what procedures they need to perform.
  6. Once the operation is finished, the gas is expelled from the abdomen and the incision is closed using stitches.

Advantages of Laparoscopic surgery 

Take a look at why people prefer laparoscopic surgery as compared with open surgery:

  1. Shorter hospital stays
  2. Speedy recovery
  3. Less pain
  4. Smaller scars than in open surgery
  5. Less tissue cutting
