What is Appendicitis?

Appendicitis is a condition in which the appendix becomes inflamed and causes severe pain in the lower abdomen. The appendix is a finger-sized organ located on the right side attached to the large intestine. The organ has no known function but if it gets infected or becomes inflamed, it will cause immense pain that will only grow over the next few days. The appendix will rupture eventually if you don’t see treatment in the next few days. 

If your primary care provider has suggested that you need to undergo appendix removal surgery (appendectomy) and you are looking for the best surgeons, Pristyn Care is the ideal destination. You can get advanced appendix treatment in Hyderabad under our care and get the organ removed through a quick and painless surgery.

Diagnosis

During the initial consultation, the doctor will examine your body and ask for the history of signs and symptoms to identify the cause of abdominal pain. For an accurate diagnosis, the following tests will be done:

  • Physical Exam- It is done to assess your pain. The doctor will gently apply pressure on the painful region. When the pressure is released, you may feel a surge in pain that will indicate that the adjacent peritoneum is inflamed. 

The doctor may also look for signs of rigidity or stiffening of the abdominal muscles in response to the pressure applied on the region above the appendix. 

  • Blood Test- It is done to see if there are excessive amounts of white blood cells in the body that will indicate that an infection is present in the appendix. 
  • Urine Test- The urinalysis is done to eliminate urinary tract infection or a kidney stone as the potential cause of abdominal pain. 
  • Imaging Tests- Abdominal X-ray, ultrasound, computerized tomography (CT) scan, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is done to confirm appendicitis or find other causes of abdominal pain. 

Procedure

Sometimes antibiotics can treat infectious appendix, but surgery is the most common treatment. Appendicitis is a medical emergency situation which must be treated between 36-72 hours before it gets burst. Therefore, there are two surgical approaches open and laparoscopic appendectomies.

  • Open Appendix Removal Surgery- In open appendectomy, the surgeon removes the organ through a large incision in the abdomen. The appendix is removed and the wound is closed with stitches. This is the most preferred procedure for those who have already gone through abdominal surgery or those who have perforated appendix.
  • Laparoscopic Appendix Removal Surgery- In laparoscopic appendectomy, a surgeon removes the appendix through one of the incisions in the abdomen. During the procedure, the abdomen is inflated with carbon dioxide so that the surgeon can clearly see inside. A thin tube-like instrument with a camera attached on top of it so that the surgeon gets a view inside the abdomen. Other surgical instruments are inserted through the rest of the incisions. After taking out the appendix the small incisions are cleaned and closed using adhesive glue.

Laparoscopic appendicitis surgery is the best treatment for adults and obese people. There are several advantages of laparoscopic surgery over open surgery:

  • Small incisions and minimum scarring
  • Short surgery that takes 30-40 minutes
  • Less postoperative pain 
  • Short hospital stay
  • Quick return to normal activities
  • Better cosmetic results
  • Fewer complications

What are the complications of leaving appendicitis untreated? 

If you don’t seek timely treatment for appendicitis, there are high chances that it will rupture and burst open eventually. The infection will spread to the intestine and other organs that can further lead to a fatal infection called peritonitis. Therefore, it is necessary that you understand the risks of leaving appendicitis untreated and consult a specialist promptly. Some of the major complications of appendicitis include:

  • Abscess or a pocket of infectious pus may form inside the appendix that needs to be drained prior to removing the organ completely. You’ll be able to have surgery only when the abscess is gone. 
  • Abdominal infection or peritonitis is a life-threatening infection that can spread through the abdomen very quickly. To prevent this, abdominal surgery or laparotomy may be required to remove the appendix and treat the infection. 
  • Sepsis is another complication of a ruptured appendix as the bacteria from the organ will enter the bloodstream and cause inflammation in other organs as well. If strong antibiotics are not used on time, it can also be fatal for you. 

The more severe appendicitis is, the higher will be the risk on your life. So, instead of ignoring the pain in your abdomen, it is important to visit a doctor nearby and consult him/her to find out the cause of the pain before it becomes unbearable. 

Suffering from severe & persistent pain? Get in touch with Pristyn Care & consult the best surgeons to undergo appendectomy or appendix removal surgery in Hyderabad.

Appendicitis is one of the conditions that are almost always treated as an emergency. It is often diagnosed at the chronic stage as most people don’t take abdominal pain seriously. And at that stage, appendix removal surgery (also known as appendectomy) is the only way to treat appendicitis. 

If you are also suffering due to consistent abdominal pain, Pristyn Care is here to help. We provide advanced medical care in Hyderabad as well as in other major cities of India to make advanced treatment easily accessible for everyone. 

We house a certified and highly qualified team of general and laparoscopic surgeons in Hyderabad. Our doctors have more than 8 years of experience and ample knowledge of how to handle even the most severe cases of appendicitis. 

Generally, the doctor will recommend that the appendix is removed surgically as quickly as possible to make sure that it doesn’t rupture inside the body. Acute appendicitis can be treated with antibiotics but if the condition has become chronic, surgery is the only potential way to treat the condition. Thus, it is necessary that you have reliable and reputed doctors by your side so that you can relax and have surgery without any hesitation. 

What are the benefits of having laparoscopic appendectomy?

Nowadays, thanks to technological advancements in medical science, even surgical procedures have become easier and safer. Laparoscopic appendectomy is such an example of modern technology. It is a minimally invasive surgical technique that has many advantages over conventional open surgery. Some of the key advantages are:

  • It is performed by making tiny incisions around the abdomen through which the instruments can be easily inserted. 
  • The technique causes minimal bleeding as only a small skin tissue is cut for the surgery. 
  • Due to the small incisions, there is minimal pain and no need for pain medications after the surgery. 
  • It also allows the patients to perform regular activities and go back to their normal life sooner than open surgery. 
  • The healing time needed for the incisions to heal is also less. The incisions will take almost 1 to 2 weeks to heal completely. 
  • Laparoscopic appendectomy is done on an outpatient basis. Hence, there is no need for hospitalization for more than 24 hours. 
  • As the exposure of the internal organs to the external contaminants is minimal, there are also negligible chances of post-surgery infection. 

You can discuss the benefits of laparoscopic appendix removal surgery with the doctors in detail and make an informed decision about the treatment.
