What is Laparoscopic Surgery?

 

Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgery done through one or more small incisions, using a tube that contains a small video camera and surgical instruments inserted into the body through the small cuts in order to evaluate and assess the situation of organs inside the human body and conduct an operation.

 

How does Laparoscopic Surgery operate?

 

Before this system came along, surgeons were obliged to cut their patients 15 to 30 cm long during an operation; which is invasive.

But with laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon makes several small cuts; usually, each one is no more than 1.5cm long (that’s why it’s sometimes called keyhole surgery). Then he inserts a tube through each opening, and the camera and surgical instruments go through those and finally the operation is done.

 

 Laparoscopic surgical procedures 

 

A number of different surgeries can be performed laparoscopically; so the patient will feel better with less pain, a shorter hospital stay and faster recovery time.

In the field of urology, almost any procedure can be carried using his minimally invasive technique is performed by the adequate experts including: Laparoscopic nephrectomy and partial nephrectomy (removal of an entire kidney or part of the kidney), laparoscopic prolapse correction (for bladder, uterus and rectal prolapse), laparoscopic prostatectomy (removal of prostate), laparoscopic pudendal nerve release (for chronic pelvic pain) and much more.


Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgery

The benefits of laparoscopic surgery include:

  • Reducing hospital stays

  • Less infections

  • Less pain

  • Faster recovery time: For example, if a patient undergoes open major surgery, the recovery period might take between 4-8 weeks; but with laparoscopic surgery, the recovery period is shortened to around 1 week. 

  • Less surgical trauma

  • Improved outcomes

  • Small scars

  • Return back to normal activities sooner.
