Laparoscopic surgery is common nowadays for gastrointestinal surgeries such as colorectal, gallbladder, hernia, bariatric, intestinal, and many more. And Dr. Samrat can perform all these surgeries using the minimally invasive method.

What is Laparoscopic Surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery is another name Laparoscopic surgery where the surgeon makes several tiny incisions. A tubular instrument called a trocar is inserted through each port.

After that, Dr. Samrat inserts a laparoscope which has a tiny video camera and light on the end.

He would then uses carbon dioxide gas to inflate provide a working & viewing space in the abdominal cavity.

In the operating room, there are high-resolution video monitors through which the surgeon can view the images sent by the laparoscope on the monitor while performing the procedure.

What are the advantages Laparoscopy Surgery?

There are many advantages of a laparoscopy surgery especially when compared to traditional open approach.

Low Blood loss

The risk of bleeding is lower during surgery as the size of the incision is very small compared to a large incision made in the open surgery. This reduces the need for blood transfusion to compensate for blood loss because of the surgery.

Small Incisions

The sizes of incisions are smaller compared to open surgery which reduces the pain and bleeding after surgery. In open surgery, a large incision causes the patients to use long-term pain relief medication while the stitch heals. With laparoscopic surgery, the post-surgical scars are smaller and the healing less painful.

Small scars

The scars from a laparoscopic surgery are smaller due to the size of the incision as we’ve talked about before. In open surgery, the large surgical scar tissue is more likely to become infected or vulnerable to herniation. This risk is particularly high in overweight and obese patients but could be avoided for everyone through the use of laparoscopy surgery.

Very Low risk of contamination

In laparoscopic surgery, the risk of exposing internal organs to external contaminants is very less. This, therefore, reduces the risk of post-operative infection. Whereas, in open surgery, the risk of contamination is higher.

Stay in Hospital

Since the healing is so much faster with laparoscopic, your stay of the hospital is significantly shorter. In some cases, patients might be discharged on the same day or the next, and be able to go back to their normal everyday lives. The initial healing and hence the requirement of monitoring very high in an open surgery procedure.

What are the Complications of Laparoscopic Surgery?

Every medical or surgical procedure carries some risk with it. Complications related to laparoscopic approach can be grouped into

  1. Complications of laparoscopic access: Access to the peritoneal cavity to introduce carbon dioxide may lead to injury to blood vessels and bowel

  2. Physiologic complications of the pneumoperitoneum: A consideration in cardiac patients is cardiac output decreases and means arterial pressure increases.
