LAPAROSCOPY: MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY
Having to undergo a major surgery is stressful, given the common perception of uncertainties, pain, and long lay-offs associated with it. But that is no longer a valid fear today for the majority of medical conditions, thanks to revolutionary progress in medical technology.
The age-old open surgical procedures with large incisions are being overwhelmingly replaced with minimally invasive surgeries that offer outstanding benefits over the conventional procedure in terms of:
- Smaller incisions and scars.
- Shorter hospital stays and recovery times.
- Lower risk of complications.
- Less pain and discomfort.
- Less scarring.
- Reduced blood loss.
Shed your worries, if your treatment requires surgeries in the chest, abdomen, groin, and pelvis. A minimally invasive surgery (also called keyhole surgery) has a very high success rate with rare serious complications. You will be released most likely on the same day and back in your normal life in about a couple of weeks.
What is a minimally invasive surgery?
The term ‘minimally invasive’ refers to very small to no incision compared to the sizes of cuts needed in open surgeries( 6” -8” diameter).
Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure, performed in the abdomen and pelvic regions, requires only a few tiny holes of ¼” to ½” diameter.
