Here, we have responded to some common questions asked by people associated with laparoscopic rectopexy.

Q. Why to go for a laparoscopic rectopexy and not open rectopexy?

A: Rectopexy can be executed by both open and laparoscopic procedures. However, the laparoscopic technique is highly approved by the good laparoscopic surgeons because it is a minimally-invasive surgery, and a laparoscopic surgical method has immense advantages and a high success rate than conventional open surgery. Some of the advantages of a laparoscopic rectopexy, when compared to an ordinary open rectopexy, are as follows:

  • Minimum incisions or cuts
  • Low or no blood loss
  •  Minimal chances of infection
  • Less pain
  • Zero complications
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Speedy recovery
  • Higher success rate
  • Completely safe.

So, laparoscopic rectopexy is mostly preferred and in huge demand than a typical open operation. We, at Varanasi Hospital, are well-equipped with the latest techniques and equipment required for laparoscopic rectopexy. We are proud to announce that we are one of the best laparoscopic hospitals in Varanasi.

Q. How laparoscopic rectopexy is carried out?

A: During a laparoscopic rectopexy, the patient is first given anesthesia to carry out the further procedure. Then, the surgery begins, in which the surgeon makes few small incisions in the patient’s abdomen through which a laparoscope (a thin medical instrument with a high-intensity light and a high resolution camera at its end) and other surgical tools specifically designed for laparoscopic operation are inserted to repair the prolapsed rectum.

Q. Can rectal prolapse occur again even after laparoscopic rectopexy?

A: The chances of recurrence is extremely low after laparoscopic rectopexy as the surgeons after fixing the protruding rectum make usual stitches with a surgical mesh instead. The surgical mesh ensures that the rectum does not come out of its place, thus saving the patient from a recurring prolapsed rectum.

Q. What are the precautions a patient needs to undertake after a laparoscopic rectopexy?

A: Thankfully, laparoscopic rectopexy has fewer complications than normal rectopexy. Still, some safety measures should be considered by the patient post-surgery. Some precautionary tips to follow after a laparoscopic rectum repair surgery are as follows:

  • Drink lots of water and other fluids like fruit juices, coconut water and so on
  • Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables (after the soft diet phase is over)
  • Avoid sports or any other outdoor activities
  • Don’t do heavy lifting or any other strenuous activity
  • Take plenty of rest and sleep
  • Keep your surgical incisions dry and clean to prevent infections (which is very rare) and wear loose clothing
  • Follow up with your doctor for post-surgical check-ups.

Your doctor might suggest you stool softeners post-surgery to keep constipation and reoccurring prolapsed rectum at bay.

So, we hope all your queries about laparoscopic rectopexy have been cleared. We, at Varanasi, provide laparoscopic rectopexy surgery and post-surgery care to people in Varanasi and Northern UP.

Laparoscopic Surgery

Whenever we hear the word “surgery”, we get frightened. Anyone would be, because who wants themselves to be cut open and have an everlasting ugly scar in their bodies. Thankfully, we have laparoscopic surgery as an alternative for traditional open surgery. But some people still wonder if it is a safe and beneficial option. So, today, we will explain the same in details.

In laparoscopic surgery or “keyhole surgery”, the laparoscopic surgeon make small incisions on a patient’s abdomen to insert an instrument called “laparoscopy” to diagnose and operate the damaged organ. The “laparoscope” is a tiny device with an attached camera and light at one end which send images of the patient’s abdomen to the high-quality video monitors placed inside the surgery room for the doctors to make them operate the patient with more accurate images.

It is called “minimally invasive surgery” because it only requires few cuts in the body unlike open surgeries, where the surgeon makes near about twelve-inch long incision for treating the same organ. Keyhole surgery is very convenient and safe as it causes less scars and very little blood loss as the cuts are very few and small. Even the risk of infections is low compared to open surgery. Hence, the patient recovers very quickly and has to stay only for a few days in the hospital. The scars heal quickly and the patient can return to his or her normal life hopefully in a matter of weeks.

Laparoscopy is used to diagnose and treat numerous health conditions related to gastroenterology (concerned with digestive system), gynaecology (female reproductive system), urology (deals with the urinary system). Laparoscopic procedures is used to treat appendicitis, gallstones, hernia, stomach ulcers, ovarian cysts, tumors and infections, endometriosis, infertility and removing fibroids.

During the surgery, the patient is kept under general anesthesia. The laparoscopic surgeon then fills the patient’s abdomen with carbon dioxide (CO2) gas to get more vivid images of the inside of the patient’s body and to create some working space for the procedure. Few incisions are made through which the doctor inserts the laparoscope and views the pictures on a computer screen and carries out the operation. After the surgery, the surgeon releases the carbon dioxide from the patient’s stomach and stitch the incisions and bandages them. It is normal for the patient to feel drowsy post-surgery, but it gets better in no time.

Some precautions are to be followed post-surgery to ensure much faster recovery. These include, avoid smoking, keeping the stitches covered from the sun, avoiding overexertion due to heavy lifting etc. Also the patients must eat plenty of healthy foods and fluids and take rest as much as possible. Following up with the doctor for further recovery is important too.

Thus, laparoscopic surgery is safer than outdated open surgeries as the former causes less pain and fewer scars and contains almost no risks. Keyhole-surgery is a cost-efficient option as well, as it requires shorter hospital stays and also promises fewer complications with a speedy recovery. Varanasi Hospital offers laparoscopic surgery for a wide range of illnesses.

Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is substituting the open surgery technique in all around the world, and the picture is very similar in Varanasi as well. For a diverse range of problems, including gall bladder stones, kidney and ureteric stones, various kinds of hernia, surgery of ovary and uterus and also for obesity, the minimally invasive surgical procedure is recommended over the open surgery technique. Laparoscopic surgery can also be carried out for problems related to stomach, liver, pancreas, rectum, and common bile duct.

So, let’s understand how the minimally invasive surgery is carried out, in details.

A few tiny incisions of 5-6 mm are made in the patient’s body during laparoscopic or keyhole surgery. The incisions are used to insert cameras and other instruments inside the cavity of the body, to carry out the procedure. The operation is executed with the help of the tools that offers visuals and movement inside the body. Once the surgery is complete, the instruments are carried out and incisions are closed using stitches.

As we avoid making large incisions through laparoscopic surgery, this procedure is practically scarless, bloodless and painless.

Hernia surgery varanasi

Hernia surgery can be done in two ways, open surgery and laparoscopic surgery. As there are different kinds of hernia, a surgeon might take different approaches to repair the hernia effectively. However, almost every expert doctor prefers laparoscopic hernia surgery for ensuring the maximum benefits of the patient.

Nowadays, ‘Hernia Mesh’ is a product commonly used in hernia repairs. Surgical meshes, in particular, the ones used to repair hernias, have been in use since 1891. Yet there are many doubts regarding the same, till this day.

Today, on behalf of Varanasi Hospital, we answer some frequently asked questions about mesh in hernia repair surgery.

What Is a ‘Mesh’?

Surgical mesh is a medical instrument that is used to provide extra support to the weakened tissue or damaged tissue. The mesh looks like a flat, grid-like structure which is mainly used to cover the hernia surgery incision. There are two types of mesh, which are made from either synthetic material and animal tissue. The surgeon decides which type, depending from case to case.

How Does It Work?

Mesh fortifies the tissue around the hernia. Surgeons joint the mesh or staple them after repairing the hernia. Over time the tissues grow around the mesh and secure the repair, mitigating the recurrence of hernia in the future.

Does Hernia Surgery Require A Mesh?

A hernia can be repaired without a mesh if it’s a small one. Mainly a small can be repaired with just a suture. However, if hernia left untreated, it often grows over time, which cannot be treated with the only suture. Then it often requires a surgical mesh for a successful repair.

What Are The Advantages Of Using Mesh?

Previously, the hernia used to be repaired with suturing, quite successfully. But in many cases hernia recurred again and again, as the incision acts as a weak spot in the abdomen. But the usage of hernia mesh in surgery has changed that for good. It minimized the risk of the hernia recurrence.

Will It Cause Any Problem In The Future?

Surgical mesh is a foreign body, which is being placed in your body through hernia surgery. After surgery, it may get contaminated and cause swelling, redness, and irritation. But it has been found that mesh infection mostly occurs due to the usage of low-quality mesh. The best hospital, on the other hand, provide the best quality surgical mesh and lowers the chances of any such infection.

When a Mesh Is Required, Which Will Be The Best Surgery Procedure?

It depends on the patient’s condition and the doctor’s recommendation. However, experts surgeons, mostly prefer laparoscopic surgery, as it provides quick recovery without any complications.

Hope we helped you with our answers. We will be back soon, with more questions regarding surgical mesh, so stay tuned for the next part.
