Laparoscopic, Cholecystectomy & Appendectomy Treatment & Surgery from the Best Hospitals & the Top Surgeons in India
What is a Laparoscope and How is it Used for Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy?
A Laparoscope is a small, thin tube with a camera at the tip that is put into your body through a tiny cut made just below your navel; your surgeon can then see your gallbladder on a television screen and performs the surgery with the tools inserted in three other small cuts made in the right upper part of your abdomen.
Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy is a procedure in which the gallbladder is removed by laparoscopic techniques. Laparoscopic surgery also referred to as minimally invasive surgery involves the performance of surgical procedures with the assistance of a video camera and several thin instruments.
During a laparoscopic surgical procedure, small incisions of up to half an inch are made and plastic tubes called ports are placed through these incisions. The camera and the instruments are then introduced through the ports which allow access to the inside of the patient. The camera transmits an image of the organs inside the abdomen onto a television monitor.
The surgeon is not able to see directly into the patient without the traditional large incision. The video camera becomes a surgeon’s eyes in laparoscopy surgery, since the surgeon uses the image from the video camera positioned inside the patient’s body to perform the procedure.
The Major Benefits of Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy Compared with Open Cholecystectomy?
With laparoscopic cholecystectomy, you may return to work sooner, have less pain after surgery, and have a shorter hospital stay and a shorter recovery time. Surgery to remove the gallbladder with a laparoscope does not require that the muscles of your abdomen be cut, as they are in open surgery. The incision is much smaller, which makes recovery go quicker.
With laparoscopic cholecystectomy, you probably will only have to stay in the hospital overnight. With open cholecystectomy, you would have to stay in the hospital for about five days. Because the incisions are smaller with laparoscopic cholecystectomy, there isn’t as much pain after this operation as after open cholecystectomy.
Appendectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the appendix from the abdomen. It can be performed either with a small incision on the abdomen or laparoscopically (key hole surgery). Below is a graphical representation of the Appendix. Acute appendicitis is the most common surgical emergency with a lifetime incidence of 6%. Treatment of acute appendicitis is appendectomy. Other reasons for appendectomy are suspicion of acute appendicitis, appendix mass and tumour of the appendix.
How is the Appendix Removed?
The appendix can be removed by an appendectomy, which can either be an open surgical procedure (traditional method), or via laparoscopic procedure (key hole surgery). Most studies have shown that there is minimal difference between open and key hole surgery for appendicitis in terms of infection, pain control after surgery, hospitalisation time and recovery. It is generally the surgeons preference as to whether an open or laparoscopic appendectomy is performed.
What is the Benefit of Laparoscopic Appendectomy?
Less post-operative pain
Faster recovery and return to normal activity
horter hospital stay
Less post-operative complications
Patient ExperienceWhat People Say About Us- Patient Experience
“My problem was a hernia on my abdomen which rally started to bother me for last three years and was getting worse each day. I saw a TV program in the US that dealt with medical tourism, and Indian hospitals were highly spoken of in that segment. I thought that probably some day I might need to go to one. I had never bought medical insurance because it’s extremely expensive in the US. But I hardly knew anything about India. In Houston where I live, there are large numbers of Indian doctors. I contacted some of them and asked them about Indian hospitals, and everyone said that the level of medical practice in India was as good as in the United States. I wrote to a few hospitals, but did not get a response.
I had so many questions to ask Then I searched online and found SafeMedTrip.com”I have had an excellent time here. Everybody has been extremely helpful. As far as food is concerned, it’s different from the US, but SafeMedTrip spoke to hospital staff who went out of their way to try to get things I like to eat.
I find the doctors here to be highly professional. And the nurses, what can I say? They have done a great job! Everyone from the food service personnel to the housekeeping staff are always ready to serve. The facilities are excellent.
I had a decent room for myself, and my wife was able to stay with me quite comfortably. I sincerely appreciate your efforts, and let me say that SafeMeTrip.com will be my first choice if I ever again need surgical or any other sophisticated medical care outside the United States or if any of my friends needed a similar service.
Will recommend for sure. Thanks you all and God bless you !
