General and Laparoscopic Surgery

Close to 13 million laparoscopic surgeries are performed globally every year, indicating an inherent trust that patients have developed for modern-day, minimally invasive surgical procedures. Today, general and laparoscopic surgery is pushing the boundaries of delivering quick, painless, and decisive treatment for common conditions like thyroid, parathyroid, anorectal disorders, appendix, hernia, gastrointestinal diseases, etc. 
For millions of patients, laparoscopic surgery is one of the most minimally invasive ways to recover from complex health issues without the fear of large incisions, scarring, lengthy hospitalization, or major pain. Laparoscopy enables surgeons to make keyhole incisions in a patient’s body cavity and insert a telescope with a video camera at the end. As a result, the surgeons can view various internal organs on the TV monitor and perform surgery with its aid. Due to such minimally invasive techniques, the patients recover much faster and are up on their feet within a few hours after surgery!

Frequently Asked Questions

General surgery encompasses a wide range of surgical procedures involving various body parts, excluding the central nervous, cardiovascular, and musculoskeletal systems. Laparoscopic surgery, a subset of general surgery, involves using minimally invasive techniques with small incisions and a camera-equipped laparoscope for visualization.

General surgery is recommended for various conditions, including abdominal surgeries (appendectomy, gallbladder removal), hernia repairs, thyroid surgeries, and breast surgeries. Laparoscopic surgery is often preferred when feasible, providing benefits like shorter recovery times, reduced pain, and smaller scars compared to traditional open procedures.

Laparoscopic surgery offers several advantages, including reduced postoperative pain, shorter hospital stays, quicker recovery times, and smaller incisions. The minimally invasive approach often results in less scarring and a lower risk of complications, making it an attractive option for many surgical procedures.

While laparoscopic techniques have advanced significantly, not all surgeries are suitable for a minimally invasive approach. Factors such as the complexity of the procedure, the patient's medical condition, and the surgeon's expertise influence the decision. Some surgeries may still require traditional open approaches for optimal outcomes.

Recovery after general surgery varies depending on the specific procedure. In traditional open surgery, patients may experience more postoperative pain and a longer recovery period compared to laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic surgery often allows for a quicker return to normal activities due to smaller incisions and reduced tissue trauma.

While laparoscopic surgery is generally safe, like any surgical procedure, it carries some risks. Potential complications include infection, bleeding, damage to surrounding structures, or conversion to open surgery if unexpected challenges arise. However, the overall risk profile is often lower compared to traditional open surgeries.

Preparing for surgery involves communication with your surgeon, understanding the procedure, and following preoperative instructions. This may include fasting before surgery, adjusting medications, and discussing underlying health conditions. For laparoscopic surgery, patients are often advised to care for small incisions and gradually resume normal activities after the procedure.
