Laparoscopy - A Painless Invasive Treatment and its Procedures

Overview of Laparoscopy

Laparoscopy is a diagnostic method that provides minimally invasive surgery. It painlessly treats complicated surgeries. If you experience abnormal abdominal pains, consult with a urologist near you. 

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive form of surgery. It finds application during the surgical intervention of the abdominal region or in the female reproductive system. Capable of precisely locating the targeted tissue, it uses accurate surgical intervention to treat the condition. 

Laparoscopy is a cost-effective treatment that solves complicated surgical issues with little or no pain. To learn more about Laparoscopy, consult with a urologist near you.

What should you know about  Laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy uses precise tools to perform minimally invasive surgery. Unlike open surgeries, Laparoscopy involves an incision around half an inch. A couple of incisions place the laparoscope, suction irrigator, and surgical instruments to perform Laparoscopy. A steady supply of sterile water is maintained to clean the operated area of blood and puss. 

Laparoscopy is a hassle-free surgical option. While an open surgery takes hours and carries a sufficient risk of infection, a Laparoscopic intervention happens all the way sterile. A patient is often released within 24-hours of a Laparoscopy, while an open surgery requires months both to heal and release.

Who qualifies for Laparoscopy?

Anyone suffering from discomfort or complications around the lower abdominal region may have underlying urological complications. Consult with a urologist near you who may prescribe you Laparoscopy for a better diagnosis.

  • Abdominal
  • Rectal
  • Penile
  • Urinary Bladder
  • Female reproductive system
  • Digestive

  • Intestinal anomalies

Laparoscopy makes complicated surgeries look easy. Its precision-guided technique finds great success in collecting cellular samples. The detection of suspicious cellular activities using Laparoscopy helps in the early detection of cancer. 

Laparoscopic operations cause no harm to buffer tissues. It uses the merit of USG, CT-scan, and MRI to precisely locate the affected cell mass.

What are the various types of Laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy gets classified into myomectomy and hysterectomy.

Myomectomy

  • Abdominal myomectomy
  • Hysteroscopic myomectomy
  • Laparoscopic myomectomy

Hysterectomy

  • Abdominal hysterectomy
  • Laparoscopic hysterectomy
  • Vaginal hysterectomy

For complicated and rare cases, a robotic arm performs Laparoscopy. 

  • Robot-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy
  • Robot-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy

What are the various benefits of Laparoscopy?

A laparoscope is a slender, long tube with a high-resolution camera, high-intensity light on the head. The urologist near you creates an incision to penetrate the laparoscope inside the target organ. The surgeons watch the entire scene on a magnified screen while performing the Laparoscopy. It eliminates the need for open surgery to a great extent. 

The precise operational technique prevents loss of blood, risks of infection, delayed healing of the surgical wound. It benefits the patient due to minimal pain experienced and quick discharge after Laparoscopy.

  • Pathological tests and imaging (MRI, CT, X-ray) for a precise overview

  • Full-body anesthesia is employed (local anesthesia too applied in some cases)
  • Operation time could vary between half an hour to one hour

I am a woman aged 22. Will I face fertility problems if I undergo Laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy is amongst the vital procedures in the treatment of infertility. It removes various uterine and ovarian anomalies through hysterectomy and myomectomy.

I am a 45-year old diabetic patient. Is it safe for me to undergo Laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy is a micro-surgery. While other forms of intervention have risks of delayed wound healing (side-effects of diabetes), the same is not applicable for Laparoscopy.

I’m sensitive to pain. Am I at risk from trauma while undergoing Laparoscopy?

The patient receives an optimum dosage of local anesthesia. It makes them inert to any form of pain. You are free to consult with a urologist near you to eliminate any degree of phobia.

How does Laparoscopy help in the detection of cancer?

Laparoscopy precisely collects cell samples from suspected tissues through a minimally invasive technique. Unlike biopsy (limited due to needle length) or requiring the opening of the skin, Laparoscopy can penetrate deep to collect samples from root tissues.
