Laparoscopy is a type of surgical procedure that allows a surgeon to access the inside of the abdomen (tummy) and pelvis without having to make large incisions in the skin. This procedure is also known as keyhole surgery or minimally invasive surgery. MIS
Large incisions can be avoided during laparoscopy. The surgeon uses an instrument called a laparoscope to visualise the interiors.
The video processing system relays the internal images to the monitor outside.
The advantage of this technique over traditional open surgery includes a shorter hospital stay, speedy recovery, less analgesic requirement, less bleeding and reduced scarring.
Laparoscopic surgery can be used to treat a number of different conditions, including
removal of an inflamed appendix
removal of the gallbladder – often used to treat gallstones
repair hernias – such as those found in the groin
repair perforated and bleeding stomach ulcers
perform weight loss surgery.
Other surgeries that can be done Laparoscopically are
Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy or Lap Chole,
Lap Nissen Fundoplication and other Lap Antireflux procedures.
Lap Hernia Surgery includes TAPP, TEP, IPOM, eTEP, TAR
Laparoscopy is used to diagnose certain types of cancer. Laparoscopic biopsy aids in getting tissue samples through small incisions.
Cancers that can be diagnosed using laparoscopy include liver cancer, pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer, cancer of the bile duct, cancer of the gallbladder.
It can pick up disseminated malignant peritoneal deposits, very easily.
It is important to stay nil by mouth for 6-12 hours before surgery. (Don't eat or drink anything for 6 to 12 hours before the procedure).
If the patient is receiving any blood-thinning medications like aspirin or warfarin, one is advised to stop it a few days beforehand. This protects from excessive bleeding during the procedure.
Some patients may be advised for bowel preparation.
Although one tends to think of laparoscopic surgery as minor surgery ( as it involves very small incisions), it is major surgery with the potential for major complications – visceral injury and bleeding, injury to the bowel, or injury to the bladder. Further urgent surgery is often required to treat many of these more serious complications.
Robotic-assisted laparoscopy or the Robotic Surgery
In the last few decades, the robot is used to do-assist many procedures.
During robotic surgery, the surgeon uses a console located in the operating theatre to carry out the procedure by controlling robotic arms. The robotic arms hold a special camera and surgical equipment.
The robotic system provides magnified 3D vision and an increased range of movement for instruments working inside the body. Robotic surgery allows surgeons to carry out complex procedures with increased precision and smaller incisions.
