General, Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic or “minimally invasive” surgery is a specialised technique for performing surgery. In traditional “open” surgery the surgeon uses a single incision (around 2-3 inch) to enter into the abdomen. Laparoscopic surgery uses 1/4 to 1/2 inch incisions. This system allows the surgeon to perform the same operation as traditional surgery but with smaller incisions.

While the patient is sedated, around three to four small incisions about 1/4 to 1/2 inch each are made on the abdomen. Narrow tube-like instruments (trocars) are then inserted through the abdominal wall. A laparoscope (a tiny telescope) connected to a camera inserted through the trocar gives the surgeon a magnified view of the patient’s internal organs on a video monitor. The surgery is performed using long thin specialised instruments with very minimal tissue handling.

Advantages of Laparoscopic Surgery

  • Shorter hospital stay.
  • Faster recovery.
  • Quicker return to normal daily activities and work.
  • Significantly smaller scars.
  • Less tissue trauma.
  • Less post-operative pain.
  • Less dependence on pain relievers.
  • Lower risk.

Most procedures traditionally performed using the open surgery technique can now be done safely with laparoscopic surgery.
