What You Need to Know About Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery has existed since the early 20th century, although advances in technology have changed dramatically. Now, laparoscopy shows us what happens to your abdominal discomfort in real-time by inserting a long, thin, high-resolution camera tube into your stomach with a small incision. From here, we can examine your abdomen on a video monitor without the need for open surgery.

If you think you might need a laparoscopy, but you’re not sure if it’s right for you, here are some answers to frequently asked questions.

Why do I need laparoscopic surgery?

If you experience abdominal pain or discomfort and ultrasound or X-rays are not successful in finding the cause of your discomfort, laparoscopic surgery may be the next step. The method shows us everything that is happening in the target area, which is even more convenient. As mentioned, it’s a bit invasive, so you don’t have to worry about excessive scarring and embarrassment.

When must I have the procedure?

After finding out that you need laparoscopic surgery, we will select a suitable date for you. Narendra Chopde knows how urgently you need this procedure. If you live an uncomfortable life, remember that it will be easier for you to feel better after completing the procedure. In the event of an obstacle or growth, it is of the utmost importance to plan your approach as soon as possible.

What happens during laparoscopic surgery?

When you enter the procedure, you will be led to a table slightly raised with your feet above your head. To relieve pain during surgery, we will introduce you to general anesthesia.

Will I be in bed for a long time?

Sometimes it is necessary to spend the night in our recovery room, but most people can go home on the day the procedure is complete. We strongly recommend asking a loved one to take you to our office and back that day. As mentioned, we use general anesthesia during your procedure, which can make you paralyzed and unable to drive or lift heavy objects.
