So, what is laparoscopic surgery?
Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure where the surgeon can look inside the abdomen and pelvis without making large incisions in the skin. Laparoscopic surgery is also called minimally invasive surgery or keyhole surgery.
What is laparoscopic surgery used for?
Laparoscopy helps diagnose various conditions that develop inside the abdomen or pelvis. It is also used in carrying out surgical procedures, like the removal of a damaged organ or the removal of a tissue sample for further testing.
How to prepare for laparoscopic surgery?
Before laparoscopic surgery, you may undergo specific physical examinations like X-rays, ultrasound, MRI, CT scans, etc. Dr. Harsh Sheth may also give some pre-operative guidelines, which are as follows-
- Avoid eating or drinking anything after midnight the day before the surgery.
- Avoid wearing jewelry
- It is advisable to wear loose-fitting clothes
- If you apply nail polish, it is advisable to remove it before surgery.
How is laparoscopic surgery done?
Laparoscopic surgery is performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Harsh Sheth makes tiny incisions in the abdomen. A tube is inserted through each opening, and CO2 gas is pumped through the tube to inflate your abdomen. This allows the surgeon to see your organs more clearly. Then the surgeon inserts a laparoscope through the tube. The camera on the laparoscope shows the images on the screen. This allows your doctor to see images in real-time. After the procedure, the CO2 gas is let out of the abdomen, and the incisions are closed using stitches.
What happens after laparoscopic surgery?
After the laparoscopic surgery is done, you will stay at the hospital for some time. The doctor will observe your condition. If everything is alright and you don’t experience any side effects, you will be allowed to go back home.
