LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY

What Is Laparoscopic (Key Hole) Surgery? Is It Safe?

Laparoscopy means looking inside someone’s body with camera through a small incision using special camera (Laparoscope). One would be put to sleep (General Anesthesia) for this.

What is Laparoscopic Surgery?

It is newer and better way of performing surgery. After passing the laparoscope small incisions are made through which special instruments are passed and operation is carried out in a safe environment while looking at each move in the screen. This is done instead of traditional method of cutting open the abdomen to the surgery.

You can argue that most of the pain patients would have suffered is transferred to surgeons wrist.

What are advantages of Laparoscopic surgery?

Laparoscopic surgery has clear advantages over open surgery in almost all the aspects. It has proven safety compared to open surgery. Some of the benefits are

1. Much less pain compared to open method
2.Very short stay compared to open method
3. Minimal scar compared to open method
4. Less complications
5. Early return to work
6. Less chance of hernia
7. Less chance of adhesions leading to long-term pain

Yes in fact its more beneficial in this type of patients

Yes people who had open surgery can also have laparoscopic surgery safely but you would need an expert.

Laparoscopic Surgery can come across as slighly more costlier thank traditional open surgery but cost would be more than compensated as patients stay for much lesser time in the hospital and hence less hospital cost and medicine cost.

Patients also tend to return to work or daily acitivity much quicker than open surgery so slightly high initial more cost is more than compensated.

Robotic surgery can be described as advanced version of laparoscopic surgery and when used for advanced procedures certainly has great advantages.

Currently initial cost of ROBOTIC surgery is very high thus making procedures more costlier than laparoscopic surgery.
ROBOTIC surgery has no proven benefits over laparoscopic surgery for common performed procedures.
