Laparoscopy Procedure Treatment & Diagnostics in Kondapur, Hyderabad
Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure that is used to scan and inspect the organs inside the abdomen or the women’s reproductive system. A laparoscope, a thin, long tube with a high-resolution camera and high-intensity light, is used to perform the procedure of laparoscopy.
The tube is inserted in the abdominal wall through an incision that allows for further examination of the body. The laparoscopy procedure involves low risk and is defined as minimally invasive surgery, that asks for a short stay at the hospital and involves a shorter recovery period. Laparoscopy procedure is also known as diagnostic laparoscopy and laparoscopic surgery.
A Laparoscopy procedure is used to diagnose the source of pelvic or abdominal pain in the body. It is generally performed when noninvasive methods fail to help with diagnosis.
How is the Procedure of Laparoscopy Performed?
Before the procedure of laparoscopy, your doctor may ask you to get some blood tests, urinalysis, electrocardiogram, and chest X-ray done, along with some imaging tests, including an ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI scan. These will help your doctor with a better understanding of the issue as these tests will provide a visual guide of your abdomen. Thereby helping him to perform a relatively more efficient laparoscopy.
General anaesthesia is used to perform the procedure of Laparoscopy. While performing the procedure of laparoscopy, several cuts, each about ½ inch in length are made below your belly button. A small tube called a cannula is inserted that helps to inflate your abdomen with carbon dioxide gas.
This gas allows your doctor to see your abdominal organs more clearly. A tube is inserted through each of the openings to allow a passage for the laparoscope and other surgical tools inside the body. The camera attached to the laparoscope displays the images that it captures inside the body on a screen, allowing your organs to be viewed more clearly. The surgeon performs the procedure and after the completion of the procedure, the instruments are removed and the incisions are closed with the help of stitches or surgical tape.
