Laparoscopic Appendectomy

Appendectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the inflamed appendix. It is the standard treatment for appendicitis. It is usually performed as an emergency.

Why does a patient need Appendectomy?

Appendicitis is a condition where the appendix is inflamed. When the appendix is inflamed, the bacterium there multiplies rapidly leading to formation of pus. If not treated properly, the inflamed appendix will burst, and spill the infectious content into the abdominal cavity. This is a life-threatening situation. Appendectomy is performed to remove the infected appendix.

Laparoscopic Appendectomy

Appendectomy is a laparoscopic procedure. This procedure starts with administering local anaesthesia. The surgeon makes multiple incisions around the appendicitis area. A laparoscope and special instruments are inserted through these incisions. The surgeon will see the appendix on the monitor through the camera attached to the laparoscope. The special tools are used to remove the appendix. The incisions are closed at the end of the procedure.

Laparoscopic appendectomy comes with a benefit of faster recovery and fewer complications.
