How is laparoscopic surgery performed?
The general surgeon recommends laparoscopic surgery due to its advanced approach, faster recovery, and minimally invasive nature. Moreover, laparoscopy is performed with extreme precision to reduce the chances of infections and obtain the best results. Here is how laparoscopy is performed-
- The anesthesiologist administers general anesthesia to help the patient fall asleep. This ensures a painless procedure.
- Next, the surgeon makes small incisions, similar to the size of a keyhole, and inserts a medical device called a laparoscope.
- The general surgeon inflates the abdomen with gas to allow the passage of instruments without harming the abdominal wall.
- A laparoscope provides live images of the organs and tissues in the abdomen and guides the surgeon through the procedure.
- The surgeon locates the disease and treats it accordingly, and the wound is shut using surgical sutures.
Sometimes, the abdominal wall may lose strength due to several factors such as multiple pregnancies, excess strain in the abdomen, etc. In that case, the surgeon uses a medical device called a surgical mesh to add extra strength to the abdominal wall and prevent the recurrence of disease in the future.

What to expect after undergoing Laparoscopic Surgery?
The recovery time can differ depending on the medical condition of the patient and the type of laparoscopic surgery. The patient usually takes around one to two weeks to fully recover after the surgery. Here is what you can expect after your laparoscopic surgery at home –
The patient may feel moderate pain in the areas around the incisions. However, pain and discomfort should improve within a few days.
Sometimes, the gas used to inflate the abdomen during the procedure can remain inside in small amounts causing bloating, cramps, or shoulder pains.
However, these symptoms do not last for more than one or two days after your body has absorbed the remaining gas.
