What is Appendectomy?
Why does a patient need 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.
