Laparoscopic is a minimally invasive procedure where tiny holes are drilled into the body using advanced optical and video technology. Through the miniaturization of surgical instruments and the development of better cutting and sealing energy sources (than lasers), tiny holes have been made possible in surgery. In comparison to large cuts, tiny holes lead to a significant reduction in pain, disability, scars, incision hernias, and wound infection complications after surgery. Surgery has been transformed since the possibility of tiny holes was discovered. During recovery, one can eat and move around within a day, and one can resume normal activities within a week.
At CARE Hospital, our surgeons are experts in both minimally invasive and laparoscopic procedures. As a leader in the adoption of new technologies, our surgeons have been at the forefront of providing comfortable, painless, and accurate diagnosis and treatment by means of both traditional laparoscopic techniques. CARE Hospital’s doctors offer palliative care in addition to identifying the causes of the conditions and preventing future complications through a multidisciplinary approach.
Laparoscopy is frequently used to detect and diagnose pelvic or abdominal pain. In most cases, it is used when non-invasive methods do not provide adequate results.
A variety of imaging techniques can be used to diagnose abdominal problems, such as:
Ultrasound creates images of the body by using high-frequency sound waves.
CT scans are a series of X-rays that produce cross-sectional images of the body.
An MRI scan produces images of the body by using magnets and radio waves.
Laparoscopy is used when these tests are not enough to make a diagnosis. An abdominal biopsy may also be taken using this procedure to collect tissue from a particular organ.
How does Diagnostic Laparoscopic and Surgical Work? What are the benefits?
It is difficult to diagnose stomach (abdominal) pain because it could be due to many causes. A laparoscope often helps in making the diagnosis when tests such as scans and endoscopies cannot identify the cause of abdominal or stomach pain. The procedure is known as Diagnostic Laparoscopy. Laparoscopic surgery can often eliminate or correct the cause once it has been diagnosed. This can be demonstrated by stomach pain that is caused by adhesions between organs and structures in the abdomen. Laparoscopy provides the best means of diagnosing (Adhesiolysis) and treating these conditions. Laparoscopy can therefore be used both as a diagnostic test and as a surgical procedure. Additionally, it can help with other abdominal problems like fluid collections, swellings, injury, and cancer staging and palliation.
Laparoscopic surgery uses small cuts that range in size from 5-15 mm to perform the procedure. Depending on the procedure, small cuts can vary in number and location but typically range from 1 to 6. This procedure is also referred to as “keyhole surgery”.
The first step in any laparoscopic procedure is to create a space in the abdomen for the procedure to be carried out. In order to create this space, carbon dioxide is pumped into the abdomen. The tubes are then inserted, allowing instruments to be inserted safely. Laparoscopes are long narrow instruments that transmit intense light and have a high-resolution camera at one end. During the examination, the camera transmits a live image of the abdomen to a video monitor. An organ of interest is operated on using long slender instruments while the surgeon watches a video monitor.
Can laparoscopic surgery be used to treat all gastrointestinal conditions?
The procedure is commonly used for treating conditions like:
Stones in the gallbladder (laparoscopic cholecystectomy)
An appendicitis (laparoscopic appendicectomy)
An intestinal, incisional, or umbilical hernia
Laparoscopic surgery has now been expanded to include advanced laparoscopic surgery, and many more procedures are performed with this technique.
Some of these are:
The laparoscopic antireflux procedure.
Emergency laparoscopic surgery for duodenal ulcers and intestinal obstructions.
Diaphragmatic hernia repair by laparoscopic surgery.
A laparoscopic procedure to remove a pseudocyst or necrosis of the pancreas.
The biliary system is treated with laparoscopic procedures for choledochal cysts and CBD stones.
Laparoscopic removal of the small bowel and large bowel, with anastomosis.
Repair of rectal prolapse with laparoscopic surgery.
The treatment of gastrointestinal cancers affecting the esophagus, stomach, gallbladder, liver, pancreas, colon, and rectum through laparoscopic surgery.
Facilities & Services
A laparoscopy can be used to treat an inflamed appendix, gallstones, Crohn's disease or diverticulitis, hernias, stomach ulcers, oncological surgery, ectopic pregnancy, removing fibroids, and hysterectomy. Our aim at CARE Hospitals is to relieve pain and restore function as efficiently as possible. We provide minimally invasive, laparoscopic procedures, ensuring patients’ recovery and enhanced quality of life with the least invasive, most appropriate, and most advanced treatment available.
