Few must know things about laparoscopic surgery

 What is laparoscopic surgery?

Also known as ‘minimally invasive’ surgery, laparoscopic surgery is a specialized technique used to perform operations of almost every kind. Earlier this technique was limited up to only certain parts, but in the past few years, most of the clinics offer laparoscopic surgery Dubai at cost-efficient prices.


How is this procedure different than open surgery?

In laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon makes use of several 0.5-1cm incisions for entering into the abdomen, in place of a single cut as done in open surgery. At the beginning of the laparoscopic procedure, the abdomen is inflated by carbon dioxide and tiny instruments used for the surgery are inserted through those small cuts. A special instrument called the laparoscope is inserted inside, which has a small camera to view the insides of the abdomen and perform the surgery with the miniature tools inserted inside. The surgeon watches the detailed images on the monitor and performs this operation in the same way as done in open surgery but with smaller instruments.


What are the advantages of laparoscopic surgery?

The many advantages of laparoscopic surgery include

  • Less number of incisions
  • Tiny incisions
  • patients often experience less pain
  • a shorter recovery
  • less scarring 


What kinds of operations can be performed using this technique?

Most kinds of surgeries can be performed using this technique. These include surgery for Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, colorectal cancers, rectal prolapse, and severe constipation. Bariatric surgeries can also be easily performed using this technique.


How safe is laparoscopic surgery?

As far as the safety of this kind of surgery is concerned, it has been proven that laparoscopic surgery is as safe as open surgery. The surgeon would, however, consider the overall health of the patient and then figure out how safe a laparoscopic surgery would be for the patient. Small incisions or cuts made on the stomach or abdomen can be safely and quickly healed. The patient should, however, have to regularly visit the surgeon after the surgery. 


The safety of laparoscopic surgery also depends on the experience of the surgeon performing it. It is therefore recommended that one must visit a good clinic that has a team of experts to perform laparoscopic surgery Dubai.
