Basic and Advanced Laparoscopic Surgeon in Hyderabad
Laparoscopic surgery is often referred to as minimally invasive surgery. Laparoscopy utilizes small (1/2 inch or smaller) incisions instead of the large incision used in traditional open surgical procedures. Through the small incisions trocars (pen shaped tubes with a valve) are inserted into the abdominal cavity, which is inflated with carbon dioxide gas to create space between the internal organs and allow visualization and organ manipulation. One of the trocars is used to allow access for the video camera, which also has a built-in light source.
Today, most modern laparoscopic systems provide high definition image quality and the surgeon and the team view the procedure on a separate video monitor. These systems provide outstanding visualization and access to anatomical structures that are otherwise only accessible via large incisions that may extend to the back or the chest.
The surgical instruments are inserted through additional trochars. The laparoscopic instruments are designed to fit through the thin trochars yet provide similar efficacy to their traditional counterparts. This approach is considered less invasive because it replaces the need for one long incision to open the abdomen. The number of incisions and trocars depends on the complexity of the procedure.
The revolution of laparoscopic surgery started in the end of the 1980s with the advent of laparoscopic cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder). Although, initially most surgeons were skeptical, at least, about the new technology, the dramatic improvement in postoperative pain and recovery time was undeniable.
Application of the laparoscopic technique requires skills that are often completely different from skills necessary to complete traditional surgical procedures. By today, generations of new surgeons were trained with this technology and the laparoscopic approach became the gold standard not only in gallbladder surgery, but also, more complex operations such as splenectomy, adrenalectomy, anti-reflux operations and weight loss surgery.
By now, almost every known general surgical operations have been performed laparoscopically. Yet, we learned that in some operations laparoscopy simply do not provide a benefit or may increase the risk of the surgery. There are advanced laparoscopic operations that are, due to their complexity, only performed by expert surgeons.
