What is laparoscopic surgery ?

Laparoscopic or keyhole surgery is an advanced technique for performing surgery. Generally, in conventional open surgery, the surgeon makes a single large incision to operate, whereas, in laparoscopic surgery, several small incisions are made, which measure around 0.5 to 1 cm. At the beginning of the procedure, the abdomen cavity is inflated with carbon dioxide gas to provide working and viewing space. Then tubular instruments known as a trochar are inserted through the incisions. Through them, specialized instruments and a special camera called a laparoscope is passed during the surgery. The surgeon can see detailed images of the abdomen on the high-resolution monitor, which are transmitted through the laparoscope. This helps the surgeon to operate with precision through smaller incisions.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

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.
