Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopy is an approach to address a surgery. Instead of making a big incision (or cut) for certain surgeries, the surgeon makes tiny incisions and inserts small instruments along with a camera to repair organs or extract tissue.

Description

Laparoscopic surgery refers to a specialized technique that a surgeon performs through several small incisions in the abdomen with the help of a camera, also known as a minimally invasive surgery. These incisions are much smaller than those that would have been done with the use of traditional surgical techniques.

Method

Many surgeries that where performed with open techniques (longer incisions in the abdominal wall that allowed direct visualization of the abdominal content) today are possible to do with the same success through laparoscopy. Laparoscopic surgery can be used in different organs, including but not limited to colon, small intestine, stomach, gallbladder, liver, pancreas, see tumors, kidneys or repairing of other organs. The surgeon will decide if the laparoscopy approach is the best option for the patient.

Candidates
Candidates for this procedure

A good candidate for a laparoscopic surgery should be determined by the surgeon considering several factors into account. One of them is the type of surgery that is being performed and if the surgeon considers that it would be easier to perform the procedure through laparoscopy. Other factors to have in mind are the amount of previous procedures that a patient has had in that same body part and any complications during these surgeries, such as problems related with anesthesia or insufflation (blowing a gas in a cavity of the body during the surgery)

Recovery

For patients that undergo a laparoscopic surgery, normally this procedure translates into a faster recovery, less hospitalization time, and less trauma to the body. All of these benefits are thanks to the fact that surgeons do not have to cut thru large abdominal muscles to reach vital organs, which allows shorter times in surgery and recovery.

Duration

1 to 3 hours (depending on the surgery that will be performed through laparoscopy.)
