  1. Dr Manas Tripathy Presents 10 Things you wanted to ask about Laparoscopic Surgeries

  2. 01 Why is Laparoscopic surgery performed? Diagnostic Laparoscopy is often performed on cases of liver disease, ascites, abnormal abdominal growth, internal bleeding, and cancer staging. For diagnosis of problems associated with the abdomen, other imaging techniques such as ultrasound, MRI and CT scan are used. However, when these examination tools do not reveal enough information, Laparoscopy is the most reliable procedure.

  3. 02Which surgeries can be performed laparoscopically? Laparoscopy procedure can be performed on a number of surgeries. The surgeries that are most commonly performed laparoscopically are: Removal of the gallbladder (laparoscopic cholecystectomy) Correction of hernia through laparoscopy Removal of spleen (laparoscopic splenectomy) Removal of liver or portion of liver (laparoscopic hepatectomy) Pancreatic resectioning (laparoscopic pancreatectomy)

  4. 03How is Laparoscopic procedure carried out? While performing a Laparoscopic procedure, a minute incision of 0.5-0.6 inches is made around the navel. Further, a slender tube is inserted into the incision made, carbon dioxide gas is channelled into the abdomen. The laparoscope is then sent via the tube which captures the real-time image of the affected area and displays on the monitor. On the completion of the procedure, the carbon dioxide is pumped out of the abdomen. The incisions are then sutured and dressed.

  5. 04How much time do laparoscopic surgeries take? The time required to do laparoscopy depends on the purpose of the procedure. If laparoscopy is performed for examination and diagnosis, then the procedure typically takes about 30-60 minutes. However, if the laparoscopy is used for treatment, then the time taken is much longer depending on the surgery’s objective

  6. 05Do laparoscopic surgeries cause pain? In comparison to other surgical procedures, laparoscopy is a lot less painful. Immediately after the procedure, a small amount of pain in the shoulder and discomfort is observed for a few days. This pain can be relieved by medications. However, the recovery is much faster in the approach.

  7. 06How safe are laparoscopic surgeries? Laparoscopic surgeries are routinely performed with very high success rates. Although risks are very uncommon, intestinal surgery is often complicated. Some of the issues encountered are related to internal bleeding, infection, and administration of anaesthesia. Like any other procedure, laparoscopy is faced with these challenges.

  8. 07Among open surgery and laparoscopy, which is better? The laparoscopic procedure eliminates the need to cut open the abdomen to perform a surgery. Thereby, they are less painful and less prone to infections. The patients are not required to spend a long duration at the hospital for recovery. As the incision made for performing the surgery is only about half an inch, the scar from the surgery is less.

  9. 08What is the recovery period following the laparoscopic procedure? The recovery time from laparoscopic surgery cannot be generalized. It varies from person to person. The main determining factor is the objective of the procedure. If the objective of the procedure is the examine the target organs for a diagnosis, then the patient can be back on his feet with 5-6 days. If the procedure is done for removal of appendix then the recovery time can go up to 3 weeks. When surgery is done for more severe conditions such as removal of kidney or ovaries or treating cancer, the recovery period is much longer and it can be up to 10-12 weeks or more.

  10. 09When can one get back to driving after laparoscopy? Again, the main factor here is the purpose of surgery undergone. If it is a simple examination, then one can drive after 48 hours of the laparoscopy. This lag time is to ensure that the anaesthesia completely wears off from the system. If the surgery is performed for a severe cause, then recover time is longer.

  11. 10When should I see the doctor after the procedure? Ideally, the next visit to the doctor after laparoscopy is after 2-6 weeks since the procedure. However, if you observe anything unfamiliar, then it is always recommended to see the doctor immediately.
