What is Appendicitis?

Appendicitis is a medical condition where the appendix becomes inflamed and filled with pus, causing severe abdominal pain. The appendix is a small 3 and 1/2-inch-long pouch joined to the large intestine on the lower right side of your belly (abdomen).Appendicitis typically starts with pain around the navel. Within hours, the pain travels to the lower right-hand side, where the appendix usually lies and becomes constant and severe as the inflammation worsens. Although anyone can develop appendicitis at any age, most often it occurs in people between the ages of 10 and 30. At Pristyn Care, we have the finest doctors and medical coordinators who will take care of you until you are relieved.

What are the benefits of undergoing minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery for appendicitis?

Laparoscopic surgery for appendix removal or laparoscopic appendectomy is performed under general anesthesia, which means that the patient would be asleep while the surgery is performed. In laparoscopic surgery for appendix removal, a laparoscopic surgeon makes 2-3 small incisions near the belly button and inserts a port which creates an opening and fills the abdomen with gas. Since the abdomen is inflated with gas, the surgeon gets space to perform the surgery well. The surgeon then inserts a laparoscope that has a tiny camera attached to it inside the abdomen. The camera guides the surgeon to view inside the abdomen which the surgeon can see on a monitor. The surgeon locates the appendix and removes it through one of the incisions. The results of a laparoscopic appendectomy may vary from one person to another depending upon several factors. But, in general, this procedure is considered to be the safest of all forms of surgical treatment for the removal of an appendix. Benefits of laparoscopic surgical removal of appendix include:A shorter time in the hospitalGetting back to normal activity fasterLess pain after post-surgeryNil to very few surgical scarsGet back to normal bowel movements sooner
