Laparoscopic Surgery – Is It Suitable For You?

Laparoscopic surgery (also called minimally invasive surgery or keyhole surgery) is surgery performed

Through small incisions in your abdomen as well as other closed spaces using a high intensity lighted tube with a video camera (laparoscope) and instruments that are inserted through the incisions. The surgery is performed by a surgeon while the patient is under general anesthesia.

Minimally invasive surgery or laparoscopic surgery is the fastest growing area of surgery worldwide. Laparoscopy is used to evaluate the abdomen, pelvis, and peritoneum along with treating the most common conditions such as:

  • Cyst, fibroid, stone, and polyp removals
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Endometriosis
  • Cancer of the reproductive organs.
  • Biopsies
  • Small Tumor Removal
  • Hernia Repair Surgery
  • Prostatectomy

Laparoscopic surgery has evolved over the past 25 years as technology has advanced and surgeons have gained experience. The results of laparoscopic surgery have improved. The procedure is considered to be safe and effective if performed by an experienced surgeon.

There are several advantages of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) over traditional methods. With MIS:

  • You’ll have smaller scars.
  • You can leave the hospital sooner.
  • You’ll feel less pain while the scars heal, and they’ll heal more quickly.
  • You can get back to your normal activities sooner.
  • You may have less internal scarring.
  • Reduced risk of wound infection.
  • Reduced risk of hemorrhage.

If you are considering laparoscopic surgery, it is important to discuss your options with your doctor to determine if it is the right treatment for you. Laparoscopic surgery is generally safe, but as with any surgery, there are some risks involved. These risks will be specific to your individual case and will be discussed with you by your doctor.

Laparoscopy is used to treat a variety of conditions including gallbladder disease, endometriosis, and cancer of the reproductive organs.
