Laparoscopy Treatment for Gynaecological Procedures

Gone are the days when open surgery used to scare and scar people, with more and more technological advancements in the medical world today you can opt for laparoscopic procedures that are much safer compared to conventional open surgeries. Laparoscopic procedures involve the creation of smaller incisions on the body through which the entire surgery is performed of removal of the cyst, treatment of ectopic pregnancy, exploration of chronic pelvic pain, tubal ligation, hysterectomy, treatment of endometriosis, hemorrhagic rupture of a cyst and many more gynaecological procedures. Laparoscopic procedures come with multiple benefits such as smaller incision scars, less blood loss and more, but that does not mean that it’s completely risk-free! 

Through this article let's dive deeper into what exactly laparoscopic procedures are, what are the limitations, what are the benefits and what all gynaecological procedures are recommended.

What are laparoscopic surgeries and how they are different from conventional open surgeries?

A laparoscopic procedure is a surgery wherein a surgeon makes a small incision in the abdomen to perform the curative steps. They make keyhole-size incisions which is why such surgeries are called keyhole surgeries or minimally invasive surgeries. This smaller incision on the body makes them different from the conventional open surgeries, wherein larger incisions were made that leave you with painful stitches and scars for life. Get to know more about laparoscopy cost by consulting with the gynaecologist in Gurgaon at Manipal Hospitals.

Limitations of Laparoscopy

Although laparoscopic procedures come with myriad benefits, they also have a few limitations and their own share of risks. During the procedure, the chances of infection, damage to surrounding organs, and internal bleeding remain but are way less as compared to conventional open surgeries.

Laparoscopic instruments are expensive so every medical facility near your home might not offer laparoscopic procedures. At Manipal Hospitals, we have a high-end facility in Gurugram equipped with advanced machines and equipment to perform a wide range of laparoscopic procedures. We also have onboard the best laparoscopic surgeons and gynaecologists in Gurgaon who have successfully performed numerous surgeries in the past. 

Discharge and Recovery After the Procedure

The procedure is performed under the influence of anaesthesia. The surgeon makes a cut to insert laparoscopy that produces the images to guide the surgeon. The entire procedure might need less time than the conventional surgery, which is completed by closing the incision with stitches. If the procedure is small then you might get discharged the same day or else the next day. 

Similarly, your recovery will also depend on the type of procedure performed and how complicated it is. You must appear for follow-up meetings with your doctor after the surgery as the doctor will check for any signs of infection and track the progress.
