A surgical procedure is an effective means of treatment for some deep-rooted health problems. However, traditional surgical procedures often cause pain, leave huge scars, and force them to be bedridden for long periods.
We are fortunate to live in an era where constant innovation has been made in all areas of medicine, and minimally invasive surgical procedures like laparoscopy are the proof of such innovative inventions.
Laparoscopic surgery is a modern and advanced procedure that aims to treat health problems related to the pelvic area or abdomen more efficiently and comfortably.
Laparoscopy is very popular because it is a minimally invasive and painless treatment. The procedure requires just a few small incisions in the body. The surgeon inserts a camera headed tube to get a clear view of the inside structure and some special surgical instruments to treat the problem quickly and efficiently. Below you will find a list of several advantages of laparoscopic surgery.
Less blood loss during the surgery
During traditional surgery, there is a possibility of extensive blood loss. This may necessitate a blood transfusion post-surgery. Contrary to open surgery, laparoscopic surgery involves making only smaller scars at the surgical site, which ultimately means you are less likely to lose blood and are less likely to need a blood transfusion.
One of the reasons many people choose not to undergo surgery is postoperative pain, which can negatively affect their health. But laparoscopic surgery is known for smaller incisions, which results in a reduced degree of pain. In addition, in the case of this type of surgery, the patient does not need long-term pain medication because the stitches heal quickly.
A shorter hospital stay after surgery
For recovery after traditional surgery, expect to spend at least a week in the hospital. But after laparoscopic surgery, a patient might require staying for a maximum of 2 nights at the hospital.
One of the main advantages of laparoscopic surgery is that it leaves minimal scarring at the surgery site after it is performed. In addition, using this modern technology, surgeons can determine precisely where to make the incision, guaranteeing minimal human bodily invasion through a few small cuts during surgery and achieving a successful procedure.
Lower risk of infections
A large incision results in a larger scar that may expose internal organs to external contaminants, making them more susceptible to infection, particularly in obese patients. But, laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that leaves minimal scars and makes you less prone to infections.
Faster recovery time
Patients who undergo surgery always want to be back to their regular activities as soon as possible! However, the recovery time is very long for traditional surgeries, which takes a few weeks to months considering many factors. But in the case of laparoscopic surgery, the recovery time is significantly short, i.e. it takes only a few weeks, and you can expect to return to your everyday life much sooner.
