Laparoscopic appendectomy

Laparoscopic Appendectomy Treatment in Kolkata

This minimally invasive procedure (keyhole surgery) is performed to remove the appendix from the body. The appendix is basically a finger-like blind-ended tube connected to the caecum which is a part of the large intestine. However, it is only removed from the body when it starts causing pain or other symptoms as the removal of a normal appendix is not recommended. Infection in the appendix is called appendicitis and it causes pain in the right lower abdomen. 

The appendix is removed with the help of a laparoscope via a small incision in the abdomen. The surgery is very simple and patients are usually discharged the day after the procedure. 

Laparoscopic Appendectomy in Kolkata is available at Manipal Hospital where doctors have specialized knowledge and experience related to the diagnosis, pre-operative, operative, and post-operative management.
