Lap Appendectomy

Appendicitis is inflammation of the appendix, a small tube like structure near the junction of the small intestine and the large intestine. If untreated, it can rupture, causing infection and even death.

The best treatment of appendicitis is its surgical removal. Laparoscopic Appendectomy is a surgical technique that involves making 3-4 small cuts over the abdomen A laparoscope (a tiny telescope connected to a video camera) is inserted through a cannula, giving the surgeon a magnified view of the patient’s internal organs on a television monitor. Several other cannulas are inserted to allow the surgeon to work inside and remove the appendix. In a small number of patients for safety purposes, there may arise the possibility of converting the laparoscopic procedure into an open one.

Laparoscopic Appendecetomy results in less pain, quicker healing, improved cosmetic results, and fewer complications. Most patients can be discharged on the same or following day as the surgery, and most patients can return to normal activities in about a week
