laparoscopic surgery in pune

Laparoscopy is referred to as diagnostic laparoscopy. It is a diagnostic surgical procedure that is useful for the examination of organs inside your abdomen. It is a minimally invasive and low-risk procedure that only requires small incisions.

Laparoscopy is done with the help of an instrument that is known as a laparoscope. It helps the doctor to have a look at your abdominal organs. A laparoscope is a thin, long tube with a high-resolution and high-intensity light and camera. After making an incision, the doctor will insert the laparoscope. When it moves, the camera will send certain images that a monitor will receive.

Why is laparoscopy necessary?

Laparoscopy is important for diagnosing and identifying the source of abdominal or pelvic pain. It is performed with the help of non-invasive methods that cannot help with the diagnosis.

In certain cases, abdominal issues can be diagnosed with some imaging techniques like-

  • MRI scan; uses radio waves and magnets to produce body images
  • CT scan; is a special kind of x-ray that takes cross-sectional body images
  • Ultrasound; uses sound waves of high frequency to create images of your body

Your doctor can recommend laparoscopy for the examination of the following organs-

  • Reproductive organs or pelvis
  • Stomach
  • Spleen
  • Large intestine (colon) and small intestine
  • Pancreas
  • Liver
  • Gallbladder
  • Appendix

Recovery after laparoscopic surgery:-

  • You have small scars
  • You get out of the hospital quickly
  • You have less scarring internally
  • You can resume normal and day to day activities quickly
  • The scars heal soon
  • You experience less pain while the scar heals
