Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive technique of performing a surgery through smaller incisions. A thin fibre-optic instrument called laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen through a small cut. It allows visualisation of pelvic organs and also treatment of problems if detected.

Laparoscopy in general surgery is used to diagnose and treat for any abnormalities in the gastrointestinal tract including esophagus, stomach, intestine and other associated organs of GI system such as liver, gall bladder & pancreas. Laparoscopy reveals more information to surgeons which are not evident by other diagnostic procedures such as X-rays and other scans.

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia in the operating theatre. Your surgeon will make a small incision in your abdomen or required area through which the laparoscope is inserted. Then carbon diooxide gas will be filled into the cavity around which gives a clear view of the internal organs. Other incisions will be made to insert surgical instruments if any abnormalities are detected that require treatment. Once the treatment is complete, the gas is removed and the incisions will be closed.

Laparoscopic procedure is a minimally invasive surgery that enables the surgeons to treat a wide range of disorders with significantly decreased pain, minimal hospital stay, and better surgical outcomes.
