What is laparoscopic surgery?

What is laparoscopic surgery

Laparoscopic or keyhole surgery is a cutting-edge surgical procedure. In traditional open surgery, the surgeon makes a single large incision to operate, whereas, in laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon creates multiple small incisions ranging from 0.5 to 1 cm in length. 


The abdominal cavity is inflated with carbon dioxide gas to give the working and viewing room at the start of the process. The trocar, or tubular instruments, are then put into the incisions.


During surgery, special devices and a camera called a laparoscope are passed through them. The surgeon can observe detailed abdominal images relayed through the laparoscope on the high-resolution monitor. This allows the surgeon to work more precisely with minimal incisions.

Frequently Asked Questions

The potential risk of laparoscopic surgery are complications related to anaesthesia, infection, and bleeding. Serious complications though rare, are:

  • Injury to the blood vessel, intestines, bowel, bladder, or abdominal organs.
  • Blood clots
  • Nerve damage
  • Adhesions
  • Allergic reactions

Laparoscopic surgery is as safe as conventional surgery. Before the surgery, Dr. Samrat Jankar, a dedicated laparoscopic surgeon in Pune, will inspect your abdomen to decide whether laparoscopic surgery can be safely performed or not. If he finds a large amount of inflammation or other factors that prevent a clear view of the organs, he may make a larger incision to operate safely.


Patients with pre-existing conditions are unlikely to benefit from laparoscopy. It is not recommended for patients with severe heart illness or COPD. Even patients who have had previous open abdominal surgery may not be an ideal candidate for laparoscopic surgery.

When non-invasive procedures such as MRI scan, ultrasound, CT scan, and other tests have failed, laparoscopy can be performed to identify and diagnose numerous gastrointestinal problems. The information or insight gained from laparoscopy is sufficient to make a diagnosis. A laparoscope can also obtain tissue samples or a biopsy from a specific abdominal organ, such as the liver, stomach, appendix, pancreas, gallbladder, etc.

A major operation does not change to a minor one with laparoscopic surgery. It is still known as a major procedure, but the recovery time is shorter due to smaller incisions. Even though laparoscopy and laparoscopic surgery are routinely performed, there are complications involved.
