Laparoscopic Surgery (Appendectomy, Cholecystectomy, Colectomy, Proctectomy, Ostomy)

Laparoscopic Surgery in Yeshwanthpur, Bangalore

An abdominal laparoscopy uses smaller cuts than normal surgery. In this procedure, a tiny camera and light are attached to a slender tool called a laparoscope. An inserted video monitor allows surgeons to watch what's happening inside your body from a small cut in the skin. The opening would have to be much larger without those tools. In addition to not having to reach into your body, your surgeon will be able to use special instruments. As a result, there will be less cutting.

Is "minimally invasive" surgery something you've heard about? There are different kinds of surgery, including laparoscopic surgery. Initially, doctors used it to operate on gallbladders and gynaecological problems. 

What is it?

An exploratory surgery using a laparoscope is called a laparoscopy. The surgeon explores your abdomen and/or pelvis through one or two keyhole incisions. A laparotomy can be avoided with this less-invasive procedure. The aim is to find problems that imaging tests cannot detect, usually for diagnostic purposes. In the course of the examination, tissue samples may be taken for biopsy. Laparoscopy can also be used to treat minor problems - such as removing growths or blockages discovered during the procedure.

Why is the procedure performed?

Laparoscopic surgery is available for many common procedures today. It depends on how complicated your condition is whether you are a candidate for laparoscopic surgery. Open surgery may be required to treat some complicated conditions. Its cost-saving benefits and improved patient outcomes are making laparoscopic surgery more popular for a growing list of common operations such as,

  • Proctectomy - A surgical procedure that removes the complete rectum or part of the rectum.

  • Appendectomy - A surgical procedure that removes the appendix.

  • Colectomy - A surgical procedure that removes the complete colon or part of the colon.

  • Cholecystectomy - A surgical procedure that removes the gallbladder.

  • Ostomy- A surgical procedure to create an opening on the body from an area inside the body to treat certain digestive or urinary issues.


During laparoscopic surgery, carbon dioxide gas is pumped into your abdomen through a small incision near your belly button or pelvic bone. Your abdominal or pelvic cavity is pumped with CO2 gas through the first incision. Trocars are narrow surgical tubes used for laparoscopic surgery to hold surgical instruments. The surgeon inflates the abdomen or pelvic cavity with a gas tube placed through the trocar. The medical professional can better visualise your organs on the video monitor when your abdominal wall is separated from your organs. Laparoscopic Surgery in Yeshwanthpur, Bangalore is available at Manipal Hospitals, visit today.

A laparoscope will be placed through the trocar after the surgeon has inflated the cavity. Laparoscope images are projected live onto the video monitor to show the surgical site, and other surgical instruments will be placed based on this. A keyhole incision or several keyhole incisions might be made, as well as trocars inserted, depending on the procedure. By using long, narrow instruments that fit through trocars, laparoscopic surgery can be performed.

It is possible to place a surgical drain inside the cavity during some operations to drain excess fluids, such as those caused by inflammation. There will be a small tube through which the fluids will drain. Depending on your condition, it may be necessary for the tube to stay in your body for a time following the surgery. The remainder of the wound will be stitched up after the operation, and incisions will be closed after the gas has been expelled from your body. Before removing your breathing tube and IV, your surgical team will check your vital signs. Book an appointment at our multi-specialty hospital in Bangalore today.
