Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic Surgery is the most common surgical procedure performed by most of the doctors and healthcare providers these days. Many well-known hospitals, including Varanasi Hospital, offer the Best Laparoscopic Surgeries in Uttarpradesh.

Laparoscopy is known as ‘minimally-invasive’ surgery and offers the patients with great advantages, such as quick recovery, shorter stay in the hospital, reducing hemorrhage and more. Doctors make small incisions in the belly area to carry out the procedure, instead of a large one (like the ones needed in open surgery). Laparoscopic surgery includes surgeries like Cholecystectomy (Gallstone operation), Pancreatitis, Colectomy, Hernia repair, Appendix removal, Nephrectomy and many more.

Laparoscopy is quite famous with almost every modern doctor. We are briefing you about some Laparoscopic instruments which are used by doctors during surgery-

  • Laparoscope
  • Cannulas and Trocars
  • Scissors and Graspers
  • Retractors

  • A cold light attached with an optical fibre.

Laparoscopic surgeries are carried out by a special machine called ‘Laparoscope’. It is a thin instrument that partly is inserted inside the body while its handle stays outside the body for attaining desirable movements for the surgery.

Trocars are made of metal (stainless steel) or plastic and Cannula is a hollow tube. Through the Trocar surgeon insert instruments like graspers and scissors. During operation, the surgeon makes small incisions in the belly and insert a cannula tube. It is generally used to inflate the abdomen with CO2 gas to get more clear visibility of the abdominal organ.

Retractors are made of stainless steel and are used for separating the edge of the incisions and the basic organ tissues to get the view properly.

The surgeon inserts a video camera and cold light source which is attached to an optical fiber, through the cannula. The camera and light source, altogether offer visuals to perform the surgery.

After the surgery, the instruments are removed from the abdomen. Doctors stitch the incision area and sealed the place with surgical tape and bandages.
