Laparoscopy is a surgical diagnostic procedure used to examine the organs inside the abdomen. It’s a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure that requires only small incisions.
This surgery is named on the tool it is performed with, i.e. Laparoscope. This tool has a very small video camera along with a light attached on the end. A surgeon will make a small cut and insert the laparoscope, which will help him clearly look inside your body on the monitor right in front of him.
Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgery
Being one of the most advanced ways of performing a surgery, following are the list of benefits it offers
- Small Incisions hence smaller scars.
- Helps in faster recovery.
- The recovery of the scars is quicker and less painful.
- Results in very less internal scarring.
- You can get back to your day to day activities very quickly.
For example: Any intestinal surgery if performed with the traditional open surgery, it will require you to stay in a hospital for at least 5-6 days and a total recovery time of 4-8 weeks. Whereas, in a laparoscopic surgery you will have to stay in the hospital for only 2-3 days and recovery time is just 2-3 weeks.
Pro Tip: Always consult a specialist before making any decision about your surgery. The best type of surgery depends from patient to patient as your condition might require a specific type of surgery for the best results.
