Laparoscopy a modern surgical wonder
Laparoscopy is a non-invasive method of surgery that does not include large cuts on to the body. A camera is attached to the laparoscope which displays the images on a screen, allowing the organs to be viewed in real-time. During the procedure, the surgeon makes an incision below your belly button and then inserts a small tube named cannula. The cannula is used to inflate the abdomen with carbon dioxide gas, which helps the doctor to see your abdominal organs in an enlarged form. Laparoscopy has revolutionized the surgical field with its advantages of reduced morbidity with fast recovery. Laparoscopic procedures have been traditionally performed under general anesthesia due to the respiratory changes caused by pneumoperitoneum, which is an integral part of laparoscopy.
