Laparoscopy, sometimes called diagnostic laparoscopy, is a surgical procedure that examines the organs inside the belly. A laparoscope is used to examine the abdominal organs during Laparoscopic Surgery.
A laparoscope is a long, narrow tube with a front-mounted high-intensity light and a high-resolution camera.The camera delivers photos to a TV monitor as it goes inside the patient’s abdomen. Your doctor can look inside your body in real-time with laparoscopy. This process will eliminate the need for open surgery. During the Laparoscopic Surgery process, your doctor will also take biopsy samples.
Laparoscopic Surgery is used to evaluate the cause of pelvic or abdominal pain. When noninvasive approaches fail to help in diagnosis, this procedure is frequently used. Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the body CT scan is a series of special X-rays that take cross-sectional images of the body. When these tests do not provide enough information or insight to make a diagnosis, laparoscopy is used. The process can also be used to get a biopsy, or tissue sample, from a specific abdominal organ.
In most cases, Laparoscopic Surgery is performed as an outpatient operation. This implies you'll be able to leave the hospital the same day. It can be done in a hospital or in an outpatient surgical facility. For this form of surgery, you'll most likely be given general anesthesia. This means you won't feel any discomfort and will sleep through the process. The surgeon cuts below your belly button and inserts a tiny tube called a cannula during laparoscopy. The cannula is used to inject carbon dioxide gas so that the doctor will be able to see your abdominal organs more clearly.
The surgeon places the laparoscope through the incision after your abdomen has been inflated. The photos from the camera attached to the laparoscope are displayed on a screen, providing real-time viewing of your organs. They extract a small sample of tissue from an organ to be examined during a biopsy. The instruments are removed after the Laparoscopic Surgery is completed. Stitches or surgical tape are used to close your incisions. The incisions can be covered using bandages.
You'll be monitored for many hours after the procedure before being released from the hospital. Vital signs such as respiration and heart rate will be closely checked. Staff at the hospital will also monitor for any adverse responses to the anesthesia or surgery, as well as any persistent bleeding. Because the effects of general anesthetic take several hours to wear off. You may experience significant pain and throb in the places where incisions were made in the days following your Laparoscopic Surgery. Any soreness or pain should subside within a few days. To alleviate the pain, your doctor will usually prescribe painkiller drugs.
