SURGERY! MADE YOU WORRY?
Let’s know about laparoscopic surgery.
Minimal invasive surgery (endoscopic surgery) is the solution for you. This surgery is done by metallic tube with camera and lenses. Surgery is done with very small incision on abdomen. Easily repairable.
These surgeries are performed by specialized doctors. Minimally invasive surgery, also known as laparoscopy, involves a series of small incisions. A gas is used to inflate the affected area, which makes it easier for the surgeon to see the structures to be treated.
Another tube with a small camera will then be inserted into one of the incisions, with the others serving as entry points for the surgeon’s tools. This procedure is typically performed with general anesthesia. Those eligible for minimally invasive surgery tend to experience less post-op discomfort, as well as less scarring. You may also be able to return to regular levels of activity sooner than those who have open surgery.
