Laparoscopic Appendicectomy
 


Appendicitis is an infection of the appendix, due to which the Appendix may need to be removed. As the appendix is a vestigial (unnecessary) organ, the removal causes no difference to the internal working of your abdominal organ systems.

Symptoms

  • Stomach pain

  • Loss of appetite

  • Low-grade fever

  • Nausea

  • Diarrhea or constipation

Long-Term Risks

  • Can cause tissue death

  • The appendix may rupture causing bacteria to spread through the abdomen, resulting in other infections

  • Decreased blood supply to the appendix wall (the tissue that encapsulates the appendix) causing pain

Solution

In a laparoscopic appendectomy, 1 to 3 incisions are made in the abdomen region to insert a laparoscope and other surgical instruments. The surgeon operates with the aid of video data and removes the appendix through the incisions. This procedure involves minimal tissue damage, fewer post-operative infections, almost no scarring and quick recovery.
