What is laparoscopy?

Laparoscopic surgery is commonly referred to as minimally invasive surgery or keyhole surgery. These procedures can be performed using small incisions which are made at a little distance from the surgical sites for easier view. Laparoscopy is a diagnostic procedure where the surgeon uses a thin device with a light and camera to visualize the disease better. Small, thin surgical instruments can then be passed through the incision and threaded through to the operational area. The process got its name from the Laparoscope which is a slender tool. Earlier when surgeons used to perform they would have to make larger incisions for surgery. With new tools, it is easier to perform surgery which is less painful because of smaller incisions.

Why is a laparoscopy surgery performed?

Here are some reasons for why laparoscopy surgery is performed:

  • It includes diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis, chronic pelvic pain, inflammatory disease, or infertility issues in gynecology cases.
  • During surgery for removing fibroids, ovarian cysts, lymph nodes also during an ectopic pregnancy.
  •  It also is undertaken during the surgery of disorders including urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapses, and certain forms of cancer.
  • It also helps in the evaluation of certain cancers of the uterus, ovary, cervix, etc.

Benefits of a Laparoscopic Surgery

Several benefits are offered by laparoscopic surgery according to our best laparoscopic surgeon in Jaipur: 

  • The risk of bleeding during surgery is reduced drastically because the incision is smaller. Also reduces the need for any type of blood transfusion.
  • With longer incisions, there are risks of pain and bleeding which leads to the requirement of long-term pain relief to heal the stitch lines. With laparoscopic surgery healing process is a lot easier and less messy.
  • Smaller incisions lead to really small scars after the surgery is over. In the case of larger surgical wounds, the scars can get easily infected and vulnerable to herniation.
  •  As the surgery is happening with larger openings the internal organs are prone to outside infection. Laparoscopic surgery reduces the risk of post-operative infections.
  • After the surgery, patients love to leave hospitals quickly. This is quite the case with laparoscopic surgery where patients even take same-day discharge very easily

How is Laparoscopy Performed?

The process of laparoscopy is quite easy and understandable. The laparoscopic surgeon performs these surgeries as an outpatient procedure which means you will be able to go back to your home on the same day as your surgery. It can be easily performed within a hospital or a surgical center.

Most probably, the patient is given general anesthesia for the surgery so that the patient keeps sleeping through the procedure and does not feel any pain. A local anesthetic is used to numb the area so that even if you get awake during the surgery, you will not feel any pain.

During the process, an incision will be made right below the belly button. A small tube, called a cannula, is then inserted. The cannula is then used to inflate the abdomen through CO2 i.e. Carbon Dioxide gas. This gas helps the surgeon look through the abdominal organs. Once the abdomen gets inflated, a specialized device called a laparoscope is inserted through this incision, and the camera, attached to this device, displays the internal images on a screen in real-time.

During surgery, a total of 4 cuts are made which allow other instruments to be inserted. For instance, the surgeon might need to use some other tools to perform a biopsy. Under this process, the doctor takes out a small sample of tissues from that organ that is to be evaluated. Once the procedure is completed, the instrument is removed and the incision is closed through surgical tape and stitches. Bandages may be placed over the incisions.

Recovery after the Laparoscopy

When the surgery process is over, you might be observed for hours before being released from the hospital. Vital signs for monitoring include breathing rate, heart rate, and pain. Any symptoms and signs of adverse reactions to anesthesia or other types of pain are also monitored. Prolonged bleeding must be timely reported. The timing of release varies:

  • Your body's reaction to the surgery
  • Your overall physical condition
  • The type of anesthesia used
