Laparoscopic Surgery

Introduction To Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique that promises faster recovery, fewer complications and less pain than the traditional ‘open’ surgery. It has become a popular choice for gynaecological surgeries due to its ability to reduce trauma inflicted on the body while still providing positive surgical results.

With the help of a laparoscope – a long slender instrument with an attached camera – doctors can see inside the abdominal cavity on a monitor. This allows them to make smaller incisions (as small as 2-3 millimetres) while still having access to targeted organs to perform delicate and complex surgeries.

For women looking for solutions for their medical problems such as fibroids, pelvic floor relaxation syndrome, endometriosis etc., laparoscopic surgery is a viable option.

And if you’re looking for safe solutions towards these issues, then Dr. Supriya Puranik, one of the leading gynaecologists in Pune with extensive experience and expertise provides successful treatments tailored to each individual, ensuring high-quality outcomes every time.

Benefits Of Laparoscopic Surgery

The best part about this treatment type is that it offers many benefits over traditional ‘open’ methods. Some of these include:

  • Lesser post-operative pain & discomfort due to smaller incisions which leads to faster recovery
  • Lower infection rates as it does not involve cutting through muscle tissue or major organs like the liver & pancreas
  • Reduced risk of internal scarring due to minimal trauma caused by smaller incisions leading to improved organ functionality
  • Shorter hospital stay with the lesser time required for recovery
  • Cost-effectiveness – a lot of times, laparoscopy is cheaper in comparison to open surgeries as there is no need for major equipment and long hospital stays

Preparing For Laparoscopic Surgery

Patients must be prepared properly before undergoing laparoscopic surgery. Your doctor will provide detailed information about what needs to be done before & during the procedure, including dietary changes & medications prescribed.

They may also advise you on how activity restrictions must be followed after surgical completion, ensuring no damage is caused in the long run.

Risks Associated With Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery, like any medical procedure, comes with certain risks and potential complications. It is important to be aware of the possible risks before undergoing the procedure. 

Here are some potential risks of laparoscopic surgery:

  • Infection: The risk of infection is lower with laparoscopic surgery due to smaller incisions. Infections may affect the incision sites or internal organs, and they may require treatment with antibiotics.
  • Bleeding: Laparoscopic surgery often involves less blood loss but there is still a possibility of bleeding during the procedure. In rare cases, excessive bleeding may require additional intervention.
  • Organ or Tissue Damage: During laparoscopic surgery, there is a small risk of unintentional damage to nearby organs, blood vessels, or tissues.
  • Anaesthesia Complications: Anesthesia carries its own set of risks, including allergic reactions, adverse effects, or complications related to pre-existing medical conditions.
  • Scarring: Laparoscopic surgery results in smaller incisions and less scarring, some scarring at the incision sites is still possible.

It’s important to discuss these potential risks with your fertility doctor before undergoing laparoscopic surgery. They will provide you with detailed information, answer your questions, and help you make an informed decision about the best treatment option for your specific case.
