What is Laparoscopic Surgery?

Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure often utilized in the abdominal and pelvic regions. It uses a laparoscope, a small, telescopic rod with a camera at the end, to allow you to see within your body without having to open it fully. Laparoscopic surgery requires two to four tiny incisions, each measuring no more than half an inch, as opposed to the 6- to 12-inch cut required for open abdominal surgery. The first one is for the camera, and the others are for the surgical equipment. Keyhole surgery, which refers to these tiny incisions, is another name for minimally invasive surgery. This type of minimally invasive surgery is known for a quicker recovery and better results. It even cuts down on the time needed for postoperative recovery, lowering the dangers of extended bed rest, such as blood clots.

Why Might I Need
Laparoscopic Surgery?

The abdomen and its organs can be examined by abdominal laparoscopy to look for the following:

Nowadays, laparoscopic surgery is a viable option for many routine procedures. A laparoscopy is frequently performed when a physical examination, X-ray, or CT scan provides unclear results. Your eligibility for a laparoscopic operation will depend on your condition’s complexity. To treat some complex illnesses, open surgery could be necessary. Yet, due to its advantages in terms of cost savings and better patient outcomes, laparoscopic surgery is increasingly being used as the standard procedure for various routine surgeries.

How Do I Get Ready for a
Laparoscopic Procedure?

You’ll need to be ready for this in a few different ways because general anesthesia is generally used for laparoscopic procedures. Before surgery, you should fast for roughly eight hours. You should also arrange for someone to drive you home following the surgery. Even while you’ll probably be allowed to return home that day, the anesthetic may have left you feeling drowsy. Further detailed instructions about your medications may be provided by your doctor.

During Laparoscopic Procedure

Around your belly button or pelvic bone, a little incision marks the start of the procedure. Pumping carbon dioxide gas into your abdomen or pelvic cavity is done through this first incision. Trocars, small surgical tubes, are ports for surgical tools in laparoscopic surgery. To fill your abdominal or pelvic cavity with gas, the surgeon will first enter the first trocar. This helps to separate your abdominal wall from your organs and makes it simpler to see your organs on the video display.

After inflating the cavity, the surgeon will remove the gas tube and insert the laparoscope via the trocar. The video display will receive real-time video footage from the surgery site through the laparoscope. The remaining surgical tools will be positioned by this. Depending on the operation, they could create one or more keyhole incisions and insert trocars there. For some circumstances, the tube may need to stay in your body to continue draining fluids for a while after the procedure. After the procedure, everything else will be stitched up. Before the wounds are closed, the gas will be released from your body. Before removing your breathing tube and IV, your surgical team will check that your vital signs are stable.

After Laparoscopic Procedure

Your vital signs will be watched until you wake up while you are transferred to a postoperative recovery room. You can experience drowsiness and disorientation after laparoscopic treatment as you come to grips with the anesthetic after-effects. Some patients may experience nausea or vomiting. You could now require an alternative type of painkiller. Gas pain from leftover carbon dioxide in the body is a typical adverse effect of laparoscopic surgery. You could get shoulder pain which is typical and will pass on its own in a day or so.

Laparoscopic Treatment

Depending on the particulars of your procedure and how your body heals, you might be able to return home the same day, or you might need to stay overnight. When you return home, you will get instructions from your medical team on how to take care of yourself. Included in this are instructions for eating, particularly if you underwent stomach surgery, as well as wound and drain care, if applicable. To monitor your recovery and, if necessary, have your fluid drain removed, you will also make a follow-up appointment before you go.
