Laparoscopic Surgery In Kakinada
laparoscopy surgeries from the most basic to the most advanced, can be performed through a few small incisions. Unlike open surgery where the incisions may be as long as 10 to 15 cms, those from laparoscopy are typically half to 1 cm.
Laparoscopic surgery, often referred to as the diagnostic laparoscopy which is a surgical process used to examine the organs within the abdomen. It is a low-risk and minimally invasive process, a small instrument called laparoscope is used with high-intensity light and camera at the front. The laparoscopic surgery is often chosen over traditional treatment methods since it involves minimum post-operative discomfort, fast recovery, less stay in hospital, early return to daily chores and considerably smaller scars.

Laparoscopy can be described as a method of performing the surgery where the tiny incisions are made in place of large cuts. There are two types of laparoscopic surgery – “advanced surgery with a hand-held device” and “robot-assisted surgery”.
The human hand performs different functions during the surgery which are hard to reproduce with the aid of laparoscopic instruments. It is not possible for the hand to access microscopic regions within the stomach.
In the case of robot-assisted surgeries, the doctor operates two devices which resemble the joysticks. It makes three incisions in the abdomen through which two robotic arms and one camera is inserted. The camera reflects high resolution and depth perceptive images which help the doctor to assess the condition of the patient.
