What Is Laparoscopic Gall Bladder Removal?
Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgery performed with the assistance of a video camera and few other thin instruments. During laparoscopic surgery, small incisions of up to half an inch are made, and plastic tubes called ports are placed through these incisions.
The camera and the instruments are then inserted in these ports, which allows the surgeon to access the images of the internal organs of the patient’s body, which the surgeon will not be able to without performing a large incision. The camera inserted through the port projects images of the internal organs helps to become the doctor’s eye and perform the surgery.
What Are the Benefits Of Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy Compared With An Open Cholecystectomy?
- Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy requires a much shorter span to recover and get back to work sooner since the incisions are small, unlike in an open surgery, which takes longer time to heal because the muscles of the abdomen needs to be cut.
- There isn’t as much pain after this laparoscopic cholecystectomy as after open cholecystectomy because the incisions are small in the former.
- With laparoscopic cholecystectomy, the patient probably will only have to stay in the hospital for a few hours or overnight. With open cholecystectomy, the patient would have to stay in the hospital for about five days.
- There may be less internal scarring when the procedures are performed in a minimally invasive fashion compared to open cholecystectomy surgery.
How Long Does It Take to Recover?
Patients are expected to recover and get back to work within a week. After a rest, for about 7 to 10 days, the patient may perform his/her daily activities, which includes driving, walking up the stairs, light lifting, and work. Activity is dependent on how the patient feels. Walking is also encouraged. It depends on the nature of your job since patients who perform manual labor, or heavy lifting may require two to four weeks of recovery.
